Breed Ambassador: Bastardized

Breed Ambassador: Bastardized
The idea sounded like a good one. In an effort to make some sense of the slaughter of pit bull after pit bull in shelters across the country and develop pit bull adoption programs where there were none, Breed Ambassador programs were created to showcase the best of the best. Breed Ambassadors would shatter...

It’s a Wonderful World: The No Kill Conference Keynote Address
A deep thank you to all who made the No Kill Conference in Washington DC a tremendous success.

Building a No Kill Kansas City, Part II

Building a No Kill Kansas City, Part II
So last night, I posted about some of the great work our friends at Animal Haven were doing on the west side of our state line.  I think having the shelter in KCMO privatize will help also.   And while we are making progress, there is still a lot that needs to be done in the other counties (and...

Building a No Kill Kansas City, Part I

Building a No Kill Kansas City, Part I
A couple weeks ago, Animal Haven, the largest No-kill shelter in the Kansas City metro, met with the public to talk about their vision for moving Kansas City toward being a No-Kill community. “What it means is there will be a home for every animal,” explained Dr. Sheila Dodson. “We...

The value of a life - Challenged

The value of a life - Challenged
Previously on The No Kill Nation we’ve talked about variable adoption fees and discounted adoption pricing. The articles and comments are filed in our adoption category for more reading.  Discounting pet adoptions is a hot button within the animal welfare industry. Talking about it is sure to...

Your dog’s balls, or your kid’s face; Texas (and nation) given choice
Please support the author’s efforts and read the orginal story at the Houston Examiner. In an earlier story we told you about Adopt-A-Cat’s efforts to open a low cost spay/neuter clinic in the Greenspoint area. According to the National Canine Research Council’s (NCRC) investigation on dog...

Is this cat feral? Attention caretakers and shelter staff

Is this cat feral? Attention caretakers and shelter staff
It should be well known by now that feral cats contribute greatly to the intake of animals in shelters but what is not known is just exactly how many feral cats there are and exactly how they impact shelters. Let’s start with “what is” a feral cat.  A feral cat is both unowned and...

So Westminster Got Me To Thinking …

So Westminster Got Me To Thinking …
I have a love hate relationship with dog breeds. My favorite breed is the mutt. My own dogs are (three out of four) mutts and even the one who ‘purebred’ is a really poor ‘example’ of the breed if we are talking standards rather than sparkling personality. I get annoyed when people...

HB 925 - Your dog at Risk. Yes, even yours.

HB 925 - Your dog at Risk. Yes, even yours.
Originally published in the Houston Examiner. Well, it looks like yet another Texas Representative, Harold Dutton (from Harris County, no less!) has managed to publicly show his jackass.   Although I’m sure House Bill 925 is well-meaning, it has the ugly potential to be the first step off a very slippery...

How Do You Measure Progress?

How Do You Measure Progress?
When seeking to improve the plight of animals in shelters there are a few basic metrics that can gauge the success of lifesaving efforts. How many animals are euthanized; how many savable animals are euthanized; have adoptions and tranfers to rescues increased and so on. But there’s another means...
