One of the primary goals of our recently released book,
Friendly Fire, is to expose the fallacy which our nation’s
large animal protection groups have perpetuated for decades: the
myth that our nation’s shelters are a network of
compassionate safe havens for homeless animals. As the movement
to end shelter killing has grown in size and sophistication, the
networking made possible through the internet and social media
has allowed animal lovers to connect the dots between individual
cases of animal cruelty and neglect in shelters nationwide. These
incidents reveal a distinct pattern. Animal abuse at local
shelters is not an isolated anomaly caused by “a few bad
apples.” The stunning number and severity of these cases
nationwide lead to one disturbing and inescapable conclusion: our
shelters are in crisis.
Because recognizing that this problem exists and creating the
public momentum needed to fix our shelters are essential to our
movement' s success, we’re giving away the e-book version
of Friendly Firethrough this weekend. Regardless of whether 100
people download it or 100,000, it will be free on Amazon. Please
encourage every rescuer, every shelter director, every public
official, every reporter, every dog and cat lover to take
advantage of this offer.
Together, we can reform our shelters so that they reflect, rather
than hinder, our values. And in doing so, we can help create a
future every animal will be respected and cherished, and where
every individual life will be protected and revered. --Nathan &
