While the no kill concept is not widely accepted or practiced at the moment, there are inroads being made at public shelters across the country. The nation's largest shelter system and city, New York, has made a commitment to be no kill by 2015 and has already reduced killing of healthy, treatable animals from 74 to 39%.|
Multnomah County has just recently undergone a review via a task force. This is an opportune time to bring this subject to the table at both the county and city level.
Please contact your Mayor, City and County Commissioners to voice your support for no kill animal shelters in this area.
