No Kill in Motion: Grey Zone Dogs and Mandatory Laws
Gray Zone Dogs
We had a panel discussion recently in our No Kill in Motion series about "gray zone" dogs in animal shelters. These are dogs who have mild to moderate behavior issues but who still deserve to be treated as individuals to start new lives, particularly since most of the problem behaviors are caused by the shelter environment itself. How would you want your dog helped if he or she did poorly in a shelter? Participating are Davyd Smith of No Kill Colorado, Alan Rosenberg of the NJ Animal Observer, Shirley Marsh of Yes Biscuit and Aubrie Kavanaugh of No Kill Huntsville and Paws4Change. The video runs about 13 minutes.

Mandatory Spay/Neuter and Mandatory Microchipping
Not a week goes by when we don't hear someone demanding that spay and neuter of pets be made mandatory. We are now hearing that people think microchipping should be mandatory. We fully support spay and neuter and microchipping. But when we make punitive laws about those procedures, there are unintended consequences. Participating in this discussion are Davyd Smith of No Kill Colorado, Alan Rosenberg of the New Jersey Animal Observer, Shirley Marsh of Yes Biscuit and Aubrie Kavanaugh of No Kill Huntsville and Paws4Change.
