    We have dogs in the military helping the troops, dogs working with the police helping to catch criminals, dogs who sniff out drugs and explosives, comfort dogs, search and rescue dogs, dogs who help the blind or disabled, seizure alert dogs, animals that work on farms, and millions of pets that share our lives and homes; and yet we have shelters that would rather kill them “put them to sleep” or “put them down” for a nicer sanitized way of saying it, than to take the effort to get them i [...]

    A compelling fact-based account of the sorry state of companion animals along with an evidenced based plan for changing shelters so that they do what they were originally conceived for, to shelter, not kill, their animals, for a win-win outcome between humans who generally love them and animals who desperately need rescue. The book also recognizes old school thinking and the need to reeducate those who cling to past practices. Trying to help these old school individuals who advocate killing, by [...]

    Content is very interestingLow stars is for the format- a series of essays that can tend to get repetitive.It's an informative look at animal control, animal care and animal welfare movement in the US with scathing criticism of methods employed at many shelters. As an active volunteer at a rescue/sanctuary, his views reaffirmed my commitment to my organization. Will open eyes of many people who blindly give to many animal welfare organizations without researching the reality of their practices.

    I was actually quite disgusted by this book. Winograd is amazing at pinpointing obvious animal welfare policy flaws and shelter issues, but fails to provide any substantial framework for improvement. At the same time, he manages to demonize shelter workers for not standing up against legislation or taking matters into their own hands to prevent unnecessary shelter killings.

    If you're a compassionate person who cares about homeless animals and the needless slaughter of them in our "shelters" and animal control facilities, then read this book.Only by ACTION will this change. Make it change. Take action.


  • Tom Meunier

    Just arrived from - follow-up to Winograd's earlier work. I hope he fired his previous editor.


  • Janet

    Alot of material from his previous book, but still worth reading if you are interested in the concept of no-kill shelters.
