Quote from Nathan Winograd
I love this comment from Nathan Winograd about those who are in the NO KILL movement of shelter animals. Status quo shelters get angry when we speak out against killing adoptable animals because a shelter wont try new ways to get animals adopted and use 7 steps of the no kill equation which have proven to be successful. We will win this battle of the hearts and minds of the animal loving public in the US.
I accept that several people in my community wont talk to me because I stood up and suggested declawing was wrong, letting cats linger in shelters and not get medical care was unacceptable, to use TNR to help abandoned cats and ferals is needed in our community. These cats dont have a voice and we are their voice.
Here is Nathan Winograds quote.
Every social justice movement in history that has every succeeded - the abolition of slavery, women's rights, the civil rights movement - each of those movements were at one time dismissed as being too harsh and non-inclusive, too. Every single one of them. But had they not had people who were willing to stand up and say, in no uncertain terms, that slavery, or child labor, or the disenfrachisment of women was unequivocally wrong, we would not have inherited the more fair and just world that they had the tenacity, courage and vision to fight for. Your language toward the No Kill movement is not unprecedented in history. It is, in fact, tragically commonplace. But time has a way of turning the tables on the status quo - of making what is regarded as "harsh" by one generation a self-evident truth to the next. So you should ask yourself, what side of history do you want to be on?"
