Florida: empty animal shelter!* 186-animal Mega Adopt-a-Thon empties shelter.  Here is another example of the do-able, 100% save (no-kill) vision/ mission / goal / strategy / tactic / dream-come-true … thanks, MJStellas@SpectraEnergy.com   Happy Tears!  Over the weekend, Tallahassee Animal Services took all of the shelter animals to the mall for a Mega Adopt-athon. They had to stop with the 186th adoption, because 100% of the shelter animals found a home! Here’s a glorious sight, an EMPTY shelter! Congratulations to TAS leadership, staff & volunteers for a super awesome job well done.

*  fyi, excerpt from Alice’s book report on the front page of her blog www.AliceWhite.WordPress.com (please scroll downward to paragraph #7 in the middle area):   “ … my life-transforming book recommendation is “Redemption: The Myth of Pet Overpopulation & theNo Kill Revolution in America” by Nathan J. Winograd, 2007; ISBN 13:978-0-9790743-1-8. “No Kill nation is inevitable.” … “No Kill nation we can immediately achieve.” … “No Kill is the only legitimate standard for animal sheltering.” 11proven-effective, No-Kill strategies: [1] hire a compassionate shelter director who believes in & fully implements: [2] an openadmission animal-control shelter; [3] the number of people adopting or redeeming their lost dogs or cats; [4] partnerships with rescue groups; [5] public relations/buy-in/public-friendly community involvement; [6] the recruitment, training, retaining & celebration of an active volunteer base; [7] a comprehensive adoption program; [8] increasing the number of foster homes; [9] providing medical rehabilitation for hurt/sick/young animals & behavior-socialization training for pet owners — to encourage pet retention; [10] high-volume, lowcost spay/neuter & [11] Trap/Neuter/Release of feral cats ….” Thank you, All, for helping precious animals – by doing your part every day (e.g., by e-forwarding pet messages, adopting, fostering, rescuing, sheltering, advocating, transporting, providing pet-wellness & veterinary services, donating, volunteering with Trap/Neuter/Release of feral cats & caring) – that will help get us more quickly to a No Kill Nation.
