Nice, thanks for posting! I first heard of no-kill shelters when we had to do a documentary for a film class in college. One group chose to do theirs on the no-kill shelter in kissimme, fl. It was neat to hear about (but the documentary was a little lacking :lol:).

Is a no-kill shelter one that does not put animals to sleep after a certain period of time? If so, it's a wonderful thing--I've just never heard of it.

My state needs to get on the ball - only one listing for Kansas. :x

There is a lot of informationon the Web about operating sanctuaries and no kill shelters!

Goodness, both of the No-Kill shelters are in my area. Tennessee needs some over in the middle and west sections. I first heard of them while I was watching Animal Planet.

WOW........ :!: :!: I didn't realize how many NO-KILL shelters there were in Arizona. The sad thing is that most of them are in Phoenix. :( We need them here in my area. We have a shelter but they don't keep the animals any longer than two months and then unfortunately we know what happens after that. :x :cry:

Thank You for posting this!!!! :D

I have found that many animal shelters do not euthanize cats, unless there is good reason for it., even though they may say "a kill shelter". :wink: Anyone could offer to be a foster-care home for cats that have been in a shelter for a long time. I live in southeastern Kansas, and our local shelter does not euthanize cats, regardless of how many they may have. I have offered to foster a few cats, but fortunately, they always seem to find a home before that is necessary. :)

I just found out that our city shelter in non-kill. I didn't know that. I thought I would post it because it's in Canada and I haven't seen any Canadian list with non-kill shelters.

Here is the link (in Canada):

There was a nice article about a no kill shelter in Richmond, BC in the Vancouver Sun today. I think it's great but I dont know if many people are aware of these shelters. Most of us would probably go to the SPCA to adopt. I think it's really wonderful that they had the article in the paper b/c it makes more people aware that there are lots of other non-profit organizations that rescue unwanted animals. I had no idea that there were no kill shelters in the lower mainland until I read about it today. Usually the SPCA branches are quite small and dont have too much variety so when people dont see any particular cat that they like, they tend to resort to pet stores or people who just sell animals to make a profit. So I hope they can get the word out to more people.

House of Mews in Memphis, TN is a no kill shelter

http://www.houseofmews.com/

I couldn't find anything on their website that specificallly said they were no-kill, but one of their policies says: Discourage euthanasia of healthy animals.

I'll see if I can find out for sure that they are definately no-kill, but I'm about 99% sure they are.

Found some proof on the House of Mews site finally!

Puddy Tat Protectors DBA The House of Mews is a 8 year old non-profit, no-kill cat sanctuary, cat adoption agency and cat lovers gift shop housing over 150 homeless cats (over 40 roam loose in 2800 s.f. store) located at 944 S. Cooper, Memphis, TN

Ok, this is weird....I see "no-kill" when I type this in...but it comes out "no-love"

Anyways...it's a no-kill shelter, not a no-love one! lol

Wow!

Woah! I didn't think it was possible for a shelter like that! That's so cool! :D

These are unfortunatly, not mine. They were on that shelter page. On the "Utah" link. I was just looking around, and found that picture. So I decided to show it to you.
