No Kill Movement
The No Kill Movement is defined as a shelter saving 90% or more of all companion animals received. In the U.S., No Kill Communities have been accomplished in over 25 communities. Those communities are not distinct – they are rural, suburban, and metropolitan – but the commonality they share is a community that demanded change and a leader who guided its residents to humane and ethical treatment of its companion animals. Any community can accomplish this goal – killing does not have to be the means of population control in your community. The No Kill Movement is real and tangible can be achieved in any community with any demographic at any time. Below you will find information on how you can help your community become one of the growing communities that have achieved No Kill status.
