Using Political Process for Shelter Reform

31 Jan

The UCLA Animal Law Program is pleased to announce its next event: Using the Political Process for Shelter Reform, which will feature a presentation by leading shelter expert Nathan J. Winograd.

Nathan J. Winograd

Nathan is the Director of the national No Kill Advocacy Center. He is a graduate of Stanford Law School, a former criminal prosecutor and attorney, held a variety of leadership positions including director of operations for the San Francisco SPCA and executive director of the Tompkins County SPCA, two of the most successful shelters in the nation. He has spoken nationally and internationally on animal sheltering issues, has written animal protection legislation at the state and national level, has created successful No Kill programs in both urban and rural communities, and has consulted with a wide range of animal protection groups including some of the largest and best known in the nation. Nathan is the author of three books, Redemption, Irreconcilable Differences, and All American Vegan (co-written with his wife, Jennifer). Redemption won five national book awards and redefined the animal protection movement in the United States.

In his presentation, Nathan will discuss ways to get animal control to shift from a reactive, public health model of sheltering based on killing, to a proactive one which saves over 90% of all animals, returning “euthanasia” to its dictionary definition. He will also explore how to reform your local shelter to end the killing through an advocacy and political campaign, debunking the myths that allow the current paradigm of killing to continue.
