Mahatma Ghandi said the greatness of a nation can be judged by how it treats its animals. In this coutry, at least 4 million cats and dogs are killed by shelters annually. I guess we could be greater. Nathan Winograd says he has a better way.
Nathan J. Winograd, is a world expert, author, lecturer, advocate and spokesperson for the “No Kill” movement. Winograd is the Director of the national No Kill Advocacy Center. He is a graduate of Stanford Law School, a former criminal prosecutor and attorney, and held a variety of leadership positions including director of operations and executive director of two of the most successful shelters in the nation. He has spoken nationally and internationally on animal sheltering issues, has written animal protection legislation at the state and national level, 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 world.
Winograd is producing a documentary movie which is to be released this year. The trailer may be viewed at http://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org/shelter-reform/no-kill-documentary/
As you can see, he’ll be in Buffalo on Sunday. But other than a tiny note in the BNews , you would never know it. The local news sleuths have been too busy reporting on the height of snow piles in shopping mall parking lots.
