I find that some people do not understand what No Kill really means for animal rescue. I’ve seen posts against the no kill initiative stating the animals will spend their lives in deplorable conditions, receive little to no social interaction, and be stacked high in kennels. That could not be further from the truth to what becoming a no kill city, county, state, or nation means. This article, written by Ryan Clinton, is one of the best I’ve seen that truly explains what No Kill Is and Is Not. It is my hope that you’ll read it – and then share it. I also hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch the 3 min video with Ryan Clinton and the 30 minute interview with Nathan Winograd – you will learn so much; then I hope you’ll share them too. (More links below the video).

No Kill Texas Advocates Click here for the No Kill Texas site. Here, you’ll find a list of Texas House of Representatives and Texas Senate members. One thing I really love is they are collecting the statistics for Texas city and county animal shelters; we need to know what is happening in our shelters. The site also includes a link to find contact info for city or county representatives. And if you’re not yet registered to vote, they have a link for that too.
