"We are a nation of animal lovers, and we, and the animals we love, deserve better. We deserve shelters that reflect our progressive and compassionate values, not thwart them. We now have a solution to shelter killing and it is not difficult, expensive, or beyond practical means to achieve. Only one thing stands in the way of its widespread implementation: a deeply troubled and dysfunctional animal protection movement that undermines the effort at every turn. If we are to prevail, we need to understand the historical, sociological and financial motivations behind this paradoxical opposition so that we can neutralize its harmful and deadly effect." ~Nathan Winograd


  • About 7,000,000 animals enter shelters every year.
  • Approximately 40% of shelter animals are killed. Some are as high as 80%.
  • Roughly 30,000,000 acquire a new companion animal every year.
  • 95% to 99% of shelter animals are healthy and treatable.
  • Some shelters save 99% of the animals. A few save 100% of dogs and cats.

Together we can stop the killing and be their voice - Foster, Adopt, Rescue and TNR. 

7 out of 10 American voters believe it should be illegal to kill animals in shelters unless those animals are suffering or dangerous.

There is a better shelter model! No Kill is an innovative, cost-effective model of animal sheltering that allows open admission animal control shelters to save all healthy and treatable animals. Unlike the “adopt some and kill the rest” form of animal sheltering that has dominated in the United States for the past 100 years and is responsible for the needless deaths of millions of healthy and treatable animals every year, No Kill shelters are saving as high as 99% of all animals entrusted to their care. 

Please sign the petition and support The Companion Animal Act and The Animal Rescue Act in South Carolina.
