Redemption: The Story Behind Animal Sheltering in the U.S.

Check this out! It's a wonderful insight to how our shelter and rescues are failing to solve the animal population problem, and how we can join together to make it right again.

Thousands upon thousands of individuals and small groups are saving companion lives and winning those battles everyday. But the production of these companions among breeders, both commercial and individual, along with irresponsible pet ownership and the encouragement by national organizations like the American Kennel Club to breed is creating more animals than the public can handle causing millions of inhumane deaths every year.

"Redemption is the story of animal sheltering in the United States, a movement that was born of compassion and then lost its way. It is the story of the “No Kill” movement, which says we can and must stop the killing. It is about heroes and villains, betrayal and redemption. And it is about a social movement as noble and just as those that have come before. But most of all, it is a story about believing in the community and trusting in the power of compassion."

Empower yourself with knowledge. Grab this book, read it, and then start making a difference. Join us, as we join the crusade to create a better world for companion animals.
