I came from Cincinnati to Austin to attend the 3 day workshop in 2012 that Austin Pets Alive provided to teach how they've managed to save so many animals; turning Austin into a NO KILL community successfully saving more than 90% of all animals coming into the city's open-admission shelter). IT WAS INCREDIBLE! Not only did they share what they've accomplished, but exactly how they've done it - I came home with a huge book full of details and forms that they use. The topics included how they became organized, how they set up a foster network to bottle feed all the under-age kittens that were otherwise being "put down" at the local animal shelter, how they work with the municipal shelter, how they work with the community and the volunteers, what they're doing to deal with treatable issues like ringworm and mange and parvo - without resorting to killing the animals! - - >> I'd highly recommend looking at AUSTIN's track record for anyone wanting to bring the NO KILL concept to their community!!
