Love A Shelter Dog or Cat

What can people do to help the millions of dogs and cats abandoned at shelters?

1.Become an advocate and learn about the No Kill Shelter Movement.

Nathan Winograd advocates for NO-Kill Shelters. He is the author of two books and tells how we can stop the killing of pets in our animal shelters. Learn more or purchase Nathan's books including Irreconcilable Differences and Redemption.

The following information is from an e-mail Nathan Winograd sends to those interested in his work.

"Redemption is the winner of USA Book News' Best Book (Animal/Pets), a Best Book Muse Medallion winner by the Cat Writers Association of America, a Best Book nominee by the Dog Writers Association of America, finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award for Excellence in Publishing, and winner of a Silver Medal from the Independent Publishers Association. It has been called "powerful and inspirational," "ground-breaking," and "a must read for anyone who cares about animals."
