Too many shelters are not voluntarily implementing the No Kill Equation. As a result, animals are being needlessly killed. In response, the No Kill Advocacy Center has developed model legislation to help animal lovers and animal advocates achieve No Kill communities.
These laws mandate the programs and services which have proven so successful at lifesaving in shelters which have implemented them; follow the only model that has actually created a No Kill community; and, focus on the very shelters that are doing the killing. As a result, it provides a framework for success unavailable from traditional legislative models such as punitive legislation aimed at the public or through counterproductive national efforts that legitimize the killing.
