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.

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!"
