NKPC Celebrates 5 Years of Progress

   “Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” St. Francis of Assisi.   Five years ago today,  on the evening of September 16, 2012, approximately 50 people gathered at Windmill Suites to attend the very first Community Meeting of No Kill Pima County (NKPC). Our presentation focused on our community’s challenge by giving the outcome data of animals saved and killed and we introduced a solution known as the No Kill Equation, also known as These components, when comprehensively implemented, have been shown to enable communities to save all animals that are not irremediably suffering or are an unrehabilitatable danger to the public and have not been able to find alternative placement. Read more about  the equation and definition here: No Kill Advocacy Center    At this initial meeting, we also offered hope for the future  with a side by side comparison of demographics and shelter data between Pima County and Austin, Texas, who had been saving more than 90% of animals for more than a year. We also reviewed the success of Reno (Washoe County), Nevada who had a much higher per capita animal intake rate than PACC and was also saving over 90%. The meeting concluded with  a participatory exercise to establish the guiding principles of NKPC and the establishment of 4 task forces.           The Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) has come a long way in 5 years from when 68% of all cats

JULY 4th SAFETY and LOST PET RECOVERY SUPPORT

  The 4th of July fireworks are an absolute nightmare for many of our companion animals. The crackling firecrackers and other noise is so frightening many animals will try to run, to get away from it- even if they are inside the house.  AND more stray animals will end up in our shelters (or worse) that week than any other week during the year. Pets do not know they are safe inside the house and  dogs in particular may try to go outside to run away from the scary noise.  If  dogs are in the yard,  some who who normally never try to climb a fence or dig their way out may disparately try to escape so they can run away from the noise.  Some pets react this way to thunder as well.   Check this article for things you can do to keep your pet safe and prevent a tragedy: KEEP YOUR PET SAFE DURING FIREWORKS AND THUNDERSTORMS   BUT WHAT IF your pet does run away and does not come back on July 4th?  Check out TIPS TO HELP FIND YOUR MISSING PET   One of those things is to look for your pet at the local shelters.     AND this year, when you go to Pima Animal Care Center to look for your pet on July 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th No Kill Pima County will be there with the Lost Pet Support Booth to provide tools and guidance for lost pet recovery.     From
