"No-kill" is coming to Hillsborough Animal Services

I did not believe this movement would come to fruition in my lifetime. I knew we could do it, but I doubted there were enough of us in the rescue world to actually make it a reality.
When a large county with a HUGE animal control problem elects to try and follow "No-kill" right on the heels of Manatee County, I know whatever we are doing is working.
Hillsborough is calling their program, "Save 90" and would like to be able to save 90% of the animals brought into the shelter. What an awesome undertaking. They have the support of the community and other rescues which they will need to accomplish this, much like Manatee County.
Check out the story here. It includes links to check out Nathan Winograd's, the father of the "No-kill" movement, speaking engagement next month in Tampa.
