No Kill Conference 2009The No Kill Advocacy Center is teaming up with The No Kill Nation in calling for essays about where the movement is today. All entries (subject to conditions below) will receive a free personally signed copy of Redemption, the book which has been called “a passionate advocacy for ending the killing of homeless dogs and cats in shelters.” The most thoughtful essay will receive two free registrations to the No Kill Conference in Washington D.C. ( Selected entries will be published on The No Kill Nation website. Winning entries will be published in The No Kill Advocate.

Today, September 1, marks the one year anniversary of the release of Redemption: The Myth of Pet Overpopulation & The No Kill Movement in America by Nathan Winograd. The book hit the movement by storm and many have cited it for changing the way they do business. Reno, Valparaiso, IN, and other communities have embraced No Kill because of it. And even the large national groups have softened their positions and have begun to use “No Kill” language and promote No Kill programs.
It seems like the last year has been an important year in the history of our movement. No Kill has entered its seventh year in Tompkins County, its third in Charlottesville, and communities like Reno, NV, Valparaiso, IN, and others in Montana, Michigan, and elsewhere have embraced it. Camden County, NJ is almost there after moving aggressively in that direction and activists in several communities in Washington, Oregon, and elsewhere are fighting for the same. Many of us stopped using the term “euthanasia” to describe shelter killing. And No Kill appears to be on the agenda of local governments nationwide. With millions of shelter animals still losing their lives every year in shelters, we still have a long way to go but the tide appears to be shifting.

What has changed in the last year for our movement?

What have we discovered?

What do we still have to accomplish?

In other words, where is the No Kill movement today.
All submissions will receive free personally autographed signed copies of Redemption. The most thoughtful essay will receive two free registrations to the No Kill Conference in Washington D.C. ( courtesy of The No Kill Nation.

In honor of the one year Anniversary, the author has donated copies of Redemption to The No Kill Nation to give away. And The No Kill Advocacy Center is joining in by offering two free registrations to the No Kill Conference in Washington D.C.
