National Leader of No Kill Movement Introduces New Book Calling For An End To The Killing Of Homeless Animals In Shelters
(Los Angeles) Almaden Books is proud to announce the release of Nathan Winograd’s groundbreaking book, Redemption: The Myth of Pet Overpopulation and the No Kill Revolution in America. Winograd, an attorney turned animal sheltering-guru whose work has been featured in Reader’s Digest, USA Today, Metropolitan Home, the Washington Post, and in local newspapers, radio and television around the country, has written the definitive book on animal sheltering in the United States, offering the formula to end the killing of up to 5 million homeless dogs and cats who enter U.S. shelters every year. "Redemption tells the story of animal sheltering in the United States - a movement that was born of compassion and then lost its way," explains Winograd, "But there is hope. Over the last decade, the success of the No Kill movement’s revolutionary approach to animal sheltering has proven that there is a blueprint to end the killing, and that it is incumbent upon animal lovers nationwide to ensure that they are implemented in every shelter in our country." The title is receiving critical acclaim from animal lovers and book reviewers from coast to coast, including:
"Millions of healthy and adoptable dogs and cats are put to death in animal shelters every year. That their deaths are unnecessary is the premise of Winograd's unique and important book, which establishes a blueprint for the creation of no-kill shelters." - Publisher’s Weekly, Library Journal.
"Powerful and inspirational... [this book will] have a truly transformative effect." - Taimie Bryant, UCLA Professor of Law and Author of the 1998 California Animal Shelter Law.
"For anyone who has ever loved an animal, this book, like no other non-fiction, takes you through the full spectrum of emotions: from sadness to anger, from fear to hope...This book deserves your immediate attention and our beloved animals deserve your immediate action." - Lee Rayburn, Air America Radio.
Winograd will begin a 16-city national book tour in Ithaca, NY, where, as Executive Director for the Tompkins County SPCA from 2001-2004, he created the nation’s first No Kill community, saving all healthy and treatable homeless animals. Each event on the tour will include an hour long multi-media presentation entitled "Building a No Kill Community," followed by a book signing. For those who cannot attend, Redemption is available for sale at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Amazon and other fine booksellers.
