Two decades ago, the concept of a No Kill community was little more than a dream. Today it is a reality in many cities and counties nationwide and the numbers continue to grow. And the first step is a decision, a commitment to reject kill-oriented ways of doing business. No Kill starts as an act of will.
PET SUPPLY DRIVE FOR OKLAHOMA
No Kill Columbia is organizing a supply drive for those in Oklahoma City who are caring for the displaced pets as the result of the devastating tornado. We have been in contact with 3 organizations who need our help. They are dealing with injured, dirty, frightened but resilient pets!
You may take donated items to; Award Pet Supply , Lizzi & Rocco's Natural Pet Market ,and Treats Unleashed - Columbia.
The first delivery of items will leave Columbia at noon on Friday to
arrive in OKC this weekend. Pick-up of items at all 3 locations will be by 11am on Friday. Our hearts go out to everyone in Oklahoma and their families.
The items currently being requested are:
#40 clipper blades
cat & dog food
bottled water/snacks for volunteers
You can also make a monetary donation to the
relief effort at http://www.petfoodpantryokc.org/ or https://interland3.donorperfect.net/weblink/weblink.aspx?name=okhumane&id=1. Be sure to designate funds towards the Relief Effort.

No Kill Columbia was established to save pets like Dexter.
"My name is Dexter, a 4 year old Hound mixed with a Boxer. I had a family but they brought me to the shelter because they were moving. I primarily lived outdoors with a big place to call my own. I’m super friendly and a family adopted me quickly. Unfortunately, they weren’t really informed that I wanted to be outside. They crated me 9-10 hours a day while they were at work. It drove me so crazy; I tore up two crates in a week. My new family then returned me back to the shelter. I was marked as having behavior problems and was killed. I wish someone would have understood me!"
