Our dog Oswald was one day away from his scheduled killing date in a California shelter. He was saved by a rescue group thanks to a California law that makes it illegal for shelters to kill animals when rescue groups offer to save them.
In that one county, rescue transfers went from zero (the shelter had a policy of not working with rescue groups) before the law was passed to about 4,000 per year. Statewide, roughly 50,000 animals a year are saved, a 370% increase which also… saves taxpayers about $1.8 million annually. We need such laws in every state in the country.
Want to help the No Kill Advocacy Center do that? Want to help us advocate, legislate, litigate, and fight for a No Kill nation? To increase the number of communities saving 95%, 98%, even 99% of the animals by implementing the programs and services of the No Kill Equation as hundreds of cities already do?
