About the Author
Nathan J. Winograd is a graduate of Stanford Law School, and is both a former criminal prosecutor and corporate attorney. An ethical vegan and lifelong animal rescuer, his passion has always been helping animals, and he left the law to dedicate himself to that task. He has helped write animal protection legislation at the state and national level, has spoken nationally and internationally on animal sheltering issues, has created successful No Kill programs in both urban and rural communities, and has consulted with a wide range of animal protection groups, including some of the largest and best known in the nation. Under his leadership, Tompkins County, New York became the first No Kill community in the United States. He has since helped many others achieve the same success. His first book, Redemption: The Myth of Pet Overpopulation & The No Kill Revolution in America, won five national book awards and redefined the animal protection movement nationwide. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, two children, and a menagerie of animal companions. For more information, visit www.nathanwinograd.com.

When I grew up, I kind of knew in the back of my mind that "the pound" was a scary place and some dogs didn't find homes--but after reading Nathan's book, the blinders are off, and I can no longer be in denial. It is so much worse. I still remember the first time I heard that there was a 3 day limit on lost dogs in my community before they were killed. I didn't want to believe it, because it sometimes takes the owners longer than that to find out where they are, and many shelters are closed on weekends. We left our name and number with a county shelter to let us know before the deadline if they had any of our favorite breed on death row so that we could network and find them a home. In the last two years we met someone from a local rescue who let us foster care dogs, and it is so rewarding for them and us. There is no one answer to this systematic failure of organizations, counties, cities, and states that collect our money and donations and then turn around and kill the animals they are supposed to be protecting: but there is one question, "What can I do to help my community embrace no kill?" If you love your pets please read this 5 star book, and tell others to read it too.
