NKN's No-Kill Effort
For over 150 years, tradition has dictated that municipalities round up and exterminate stray and owner-abandoned animals that were not immediately reclaimed or, in recent years, adopted at animal control facilities.
If you are one of the many that are horrified at the practice of killing puppies, kittens, dogs and cats and other companion animals, the time has come to put into practice what many of us have been preaching.
An historic event is taking place in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The City is breaking tradition. Instead of running its animal shelter with the focus on controlling population through killing, the City Council has expressed its preference to explore a no-kill operation focused on finding homes for all adoptable animals and has backed up its talk with a $20,000 investment in a no-kill consultant.
As Jack Lam, City Manager, put it, "The train has left the station and there's no turning back." The County administration has been fired and an all-new Director and staff will be seated as of January 1, 2006! See related articles here.
The evaluation period has begun and here's your
opportunity to tell everything you know about the shelter's
operations, any suggestions you may have for improvements and what
skills and ideas you can bring to the daunting task of creating the
West Coast's first no kill shelter!
