New Book on Animal Shelter History

Prodigal Pets: A History of Animal Sheltering in America and the Origin of the No Kill Movement is now published on the Out the Front Door website. The book begins with a look at the colonial period, and covers the years from 1800 to 2000 in depth. The second half of the book concentrates on the years from 1970 to 2000, when many factors converged to make the No Kill movement possible.
