Meet The Father of The “No-Kill” Movement

(GoodNews Network) Richard Avanzino was a bit of a wallflower as a kid. He didn’t have any friends to speak of—well, friends on two legs, anyway. His friends with four paws were his true pals, and because of them, he vowed to dedicate his life to helping dogs everywhere. And he did: millions of them, in fact. It all started back in 1976, when Avanzino arrived at the San Francisco SPCA. At the time, the primary discussion within the humane movement was how to best kill the animals, but that all changed after he encountered Sido. As its president, he revolutionized animal sheltering by housing dogs and cats awaiting adoption in cozy, home-like settings rather than cages, setting a new standard of sheltering practices—and not just the cute, young ones, either.
