What is NO
No Kill means that all
brought to a shelter are given a real chance at life.
The shelter must have an open door policy, which means
all animals must be admitted.
The definitions for "healthy" and "treatable" are closely
based on how you would list your own pet, meaning over 90%
of animals, on average, brought into shelters, should and
would be saved, Including elderly animals, ferals, those
that need special attention, perhaps rehabilitation, and/or
medication, more time to adjust, and just love.
Places like San Francisco, Ca.,
Ithaca New York, even Reno Nevada, Austin Texas have all
implemented a No Kill policy and we can too! These are
places larger than Maui and smaller than Maui, and even
places with less money for their shelters! Hundreds of
cities and communities now are considered No Kill. Not just
a few shelters, but the whole area, the whole community.
Currently more than 100 open admission shelters are No Kill
in our country.
It's not just saying ".. of course we want to be No Kill",
(No shelter really wants to kill animals.)
It's a whole philosophy. You embrace the idea and do all you
can to make it happen.
No more excuses!
MAUI can do this too,
but we need YOUR help!

Isn't it time we stop ignoring the problem of pet over
allowing others to "get rid of" anything we don't want to
