Who Is No-Kill Now!
What Happens When the Pound Is Full?
is estimated as many as 250,000,000 companion animals were slaughtered in
American 'shelters' during the last decade. That figure is equivalent to
the entire US human population in 1991.
Whether you are a rescuer of many, an animal caregiver of few or simply a concerned individual, if you believe that a 'shelter' should be a safe haven for animals that leads to their eventual placement into loving, adoptive homes, then you have come to the right place. How do we accomplish our goal?
We are an advocacy group willing to do what is necessary to save the lives of millions of companion animals incarcerated in our animal control facilities who will never leave alive unless we take action.
We want our public officials to know
we have sat on the sidelines long enough for them to make the right
choices. Their decisions have cost the lives of thousands of our community
animals. We now have to take a stand. We demand that our representatives
yield to the will of their constituents. They must STOP THE KILLING NOW. Our plan covers several fronts...Read
The director of No-Kill NOW!:

|The Definition of "No-Kill"||Foster Families Needed!|
A "no-kill" fervor is spreading across the United States like wildfire. It is advocated by our neighbors in Canada and Mexico and has found supporters in nearly every continent on the globe. What does it mean? Can shelters really save ALL animals? Is this the best solution?
The term raises many questions and an eager public, weary of all the killing, wants answers.

Rancho Cucamonga Animal 'Shelter', please help!
What's so great about fostering?
Nothing feels better than saving lives! Just think what an influence you can be on your children, family, neighbors and community! If we can get everyone to help, we can turn our animal pound into a place of joy and salvation! 90% of animals in city facilities are healthy, adoptable companions that had homes and were a part of families.
Impossible You Say?
No-kill facilities are operating in several cities across the country, including New York, San Francisco and Utah. While some pounds kill as many as 90% of the animals they capture and that owners relinquish, others are reducing their kill rates of adoptable animals to 0%!
"Some people still think it will be
impossible ever to bring an end to the killing of homeless animals in this
country. Among them are some of the nation’s largest, oldest, and most
well-known – and well-funded – animal rights organizations and humane
