No Kill in Motion: Our No Kill Library and Reading Room

There is a lot of information available about No Kill shelter philosophies and issues related to those philosophies. We end the year by sharing our No Kill library and some reading recommendations for those looking to educate themselves further in the new year.

Participating are Davyd Smith of No Kill Colorado, Alan Rosenberg of the New Jersey Animal Observer and Aubrie Kavanaugh of Paws4Change and No Kill Huntsville. The video runs about 18 minutes. "Adages" courtesy of Fisher (Kathleen Fisher and Ron Wasserman).
