I am not the contact.   Please pass this on if you're not taking them.   It's very helpful to send these on if you can, as you never know who might need a great cat in their lives.   Thanks!


Want to help pound animals not be in this situation at all?

Please write your mayor and city council or board of supervisors (or whomever oversees your pound) asking them to implement the No Kill Equation right away:  

having a TNR program, high-volue/low-cost sterilization, working with rescue reputable groups (per the Hayden Law), having foster care for all ages, having u adoptions programs (monthly promotions, daily off-site adoptions), having a pet retention program, medical and behavior prevention/rehabilitation, good public relations for community involvement, using volunteers, doing proactive redemptions (e.g., return to owner in the field instead of impoundment), and most importantly, having a compassionate director that will take killing off the table and find more creative solutions to killing for convenience.

Since most cities will not have funding in place, you might suggest how they fund it.  One way is to reapportion existing funds.   Another is to make liberal use of trained volunteers.   Another is to partner with businesses.   The ways are limited only by your imagination.

If you specifically want to help cats, ask them to build cat rooms for the cats, as pounds are not set up for cats (http://articles.philly.com/2011-03-11/news/28680476_1_cat-dander-shelter-conditions-calicivirus).  The No Kill shelter who did this funded their rooms by putting out a call for donations: see Making Your Shelter the Cat's Meow:o http://vimeo.com/26974723


If you're in Los Angeles, you can like the Facebook page No Kill Los Angeles to get information on getting the No Kill Equation at least a trial in that city.

Go Get a Life---Go Get a Shelter Animal!

If you can't adopt, then foster a "bottle baby" shelter animal, to save their life.  If you can't bottle feed, then foster an older or special-needs animal, to save their life, and to free up cage space for another life.

Ask your local animal pound to start saving over 90% (and as high as 99%) of their intake by implementing the No Kill Equation: http://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org/shelter-reform/no-kill-equation/.  Here's a list of communities saving 90% or more of their shelter intake: http://outthefrontdoor.com/, with special notice to: http://outthefrontdoor.com/2013/12/03/can-we-adopt-our-way-out-of-killing/  More fun reading: http://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org/shelter-reform/guides/ More fun watching:  http://vimeo.com/48445902 and http://vimeo.com/70632980
