April 2008
Tony & Rebecca Williams claim to have a rescue in Rocky Mount , NC and are trying to get dogs from all over the Eastern Seaboard. (She offered to take 14 dogs since Monday.) They are using these dogs for illegal dog fighting. She continues to take dogs. Most are pit bulls, with some offers to adopt Presa Canarios, Rottweiler's, Dobermans, and Wolf hybrids. In addition, she had previously posted that her roommate was looking for a Great Dane or Great Dane mix. She also posted that she was "desperate" for a Chihuahua and she really wanted a Min Pin and a Jack Russell. She claims her rescue is a pit bull rescue, but another pit rescuer called the local Animal Control

Warning: New Hanover Animal Shelter will euthanize Pit bulls and mixes, Chow Chows and mixes in short order. shelter policy .pdf

Be aware, Jan 2015: A/w local OKC news: Idabel, Okla. Mayor Tina Foshee said Wednesday the town would investigate its animal shelter after a dog housed there was filmed earlier this week eating its dead kennel mate. Abe Thomas posed the video to his Facebook account on Tuesday night. He said he went to the shelter that day in hopes of adopting a dog. This gruesome video shows Thomas walking outside the shelter to a fenced area where a gray pit bull terrier is seen eating the remains of a dead puppy. This video was provided to the Tulsa World and has been shared numerous times on social media. The town's animal control officer states he has worked at the shelter for 24 years and called the incident an accident. He added "I played with the dog at 10:30 that morning. I went to lunch at noon and when I came back from lunch, I met with a guy who said he wanted to adopt a dog. That is when we both seen it." Thomas said that he adopted the dog seen in the video. This was out of fear that it would be killed if he did not adopt it. Thomas added "The pit bull wasn't vicious. When I told it to stop eating the dog, it did. I figured that it was hungry." Thomas said that he named the dog "Joy" because "she looked so joyful to be out of there."

Furry Friends is in Barrie, Ontario, and another Street Cats also in Barrie. Furry Friends I know well. The cats are kept safe, given the best possible chance for adoption, and taken into foster homes to help "tame" any that are taken in from outside until they are ready to be adopted. They do have some that have been there for years with different issues that seem to make them more difficult to adopt, but at no time are they killed simply because they can't find a home.  :) They have taken many that I've cared for and rescued from the street!

Sept 2014: Toronto Cat Rescue has formed an exclusive alliance with Toronto Animal Services, and has been telling the public that Toronto Animal Services has stopped killing. There has been no increase in the city budget, the intake of animals has dropped, the TNR program is minimal, adoption spots are never filled, there are no sanctuaries. In other words, nothing in Toronto has changed to make no-kill a possibility. Toronto Humane Society also falls into this category. They claim to be no-kill but transfer stray cats and dogs to Toronto Animal Services, where 50% of dogs are killed, and 70% of cats.

PazAnimal is an animal shelter located in Cali, Colombia. - see below.
PazAnimal's address is

November 2010. Hi, I just check the section NO- KILL shelters and there appears Paz Animal in Colombia. This organization is the shelter who has the most flexible policies about this and they kill a lot of animals, they even have a oven because of the number of animals they sacrifice. The only organization in Cali, Colombia who doesn't have this policy is Animal Safe and Fundacion Paraiso de la Mascota. I hope you guys correct this information please!
