The Pace of the No Kill Movement

The Pace of Change

In looking back at the no-kill movement, it is remarkable how the pace of change has accelerated. In the last two years, 17 communities have achieved no-kill status, as compared to only 9 communities for the entire decade before 2010!

Nine communities achieved no-kill status between 2001 and 2009:That number then doubled in 2010 alone, when nine more communities achieved no-kill status:And in 2011 we have had eight so far (more will no doubt be identified once end-of-year statistics are available):This pace of change is remarkable. If you are a no-kill advocate and you have a meeting with your mayor or city council or county commissioner, this is a great argument to make. The no-kill shelter paradigm is working so well that communities are jumping on the train at an exponentially increasing pace. These numbers should convince community leadership that no-kill is the wave of the future.
It will be interesting to see what 2012 brings. It’s looking like Virginia, Michigan, and Texas will keep up their progress. I expect to be able to add Rockwall, Manatee County, Longmont, and Corrales to the no-kill category soon. Prescott, Superior, and Kansas City Missouri are also definite possibilities. It could well be that 2012 will set a record for number of communities that achieve no kill. Let’s get out there and make it happen!
