2012 Henry Bergh Leadership Awards

Each year the No Kill Advocacy Center honors shelter pet advocates who are making a positive difference in the efforts to end the needless killing.  There is a post on Nathan Winograd’s blog introducing the six recipients of this year’s awards and honoring other advocates as well.  I was pleased to see two mentions of fellow bloggers in his post:  One is a shout out to “Susan Hauser whose No Kill News page identifying those communities is the single most important blog in the movement today.”  It’s hard to get much higher praise than that and it is well deserved.  The other blogger mentioned in the post is 2012 award recipient John Sibley:

His blog, In Dog We Trust, is the definitive voice of the No Kill movement in New York City.

Congratulations to Susan and John as well as all the other advocates honored and thank you for the inspiration.

    These are wonderful choices. Congratulations to all the winners! This award is so significant — the only one to acknowledge those working to change the way shelters operate.

    Kudos also to those mentioned in Nathan’s blog post. I agree that Susan Houser’s blog No-Kill Communities (no-killnews.com) is especially important. Houser is clear about her criteria (often discussing them explicitly with other No Kill advocates) as she publicly charts the growth of the No Kill movement. Others have done excellent work in listing No Kill shelters, but I think because No-Kill Communities does only that and nothing else, it’s become a very helpful blog to point to.

  3. So, what happened to no kill news? It was a terrific resource.
