Nathan J. Winograd
Dear Friends and Colleagues:

"It is time for all of us to lift our voices for those who cannot speak for themselves."

Oreo, an abused dog, was needlessly killed by the ASPCA.

This beautiful sentiment was written by Gail Longstaff, the President of No More Homeless Pets of Kansas City, in support of Oreo's Law. Oreo's Law, named after an abused dog killed in New York City despite the offer of a No Kill sanctuary to save her life, will make it illegal for any shelter in New York to kill an animal when a qualified rescue group is willing to save that animal's life.

If it succeeds in New York, it could prove to be a model for the rest of the nation. That is why the most progressive voices in animal sheltering from around the country are speaking up in favor of Oreo's Law, including Michael Mountain, the founder of Best Friends, Bonney Brown, Susanne Kogut, Mike Fry, and others. 

You can learn more about Oreo's Law and read their letters of support; and you can find out why the ASPCA, the agency which killed Oreo, is trying to derail this needed lifesaving reform. Go to my "Oreo's Law" page by clicking here.

Would you add your voice and speak for the animals?  You can add your comments or send a letter by clicking here.

Redemption is the winner of USA Book News' Best Book (Animal/Pets), a Best Book Muse Medallion winner by the Cat Writers Association of America, a Best Book nominee by the Dog Writers Association of America, finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award for Excellence in Publishing, and winner of a Silver Medal from the Independent Publishers Association. It has been called "powerful and inspirational," "ground-breaking," and "a must read for anyone who cares about animals."
