Save the Date: October 17th "Road to No Kill Austin" Featuring Nathan Winograd

Some of you may not know that Austin's pound currently kills more than 13,000 dogs and cats each year as it has for decades.  That's why we founded with the goal of reducing Austin's shelter killing through the use of cost-effective, proven programs that have effectively and dramatically reduced shelter killing in other communities across the country.

So we're very, very pleased to announce that on Friday, October 17th from 6pm to 8:30pm, is hosting a major event for those who care about Austin's homeless animals. That evening at Austin City Hall, we'll host "The Road to No Kill Austin," a public-policy forum on ways to dramatically reduce Austin's killing of companion animals.

The event will feature presentations from a few of Austin's brightest minds in animal welfare, and the keynote presentation will be delivered by national no-kill expert Nathan Winograd of the No Kill Advocacy Center.

Attendance is free and open to the public.  Donations are encouraged, and attendees are also encouraged to enjoy our silent auction to raise funds for homeless pets.
