This is Your "No Kill", Nathan Winograd

There were 349 dogs found alive in dark, filthy barns belonging to a man who advertised a no-kill, nonprofit shelter. The bodies of 76 other dogs were found among the rescued on Feb.17.

"This is a no-kill shelter gone horribly wrong," said Kyle Held, commander of a special unit of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals that responds nationwide for large-scale animal rescues.

"We literally had to tear cages apart to remove animals," he said.
"That just goes to show us as rescuers, these animals have had no socialization in months, maybe years."

One dog had to be euthanized, Held said. Many others have severe medical problems. Nearly 10 pounds of matted hair was removed from one dog. Several had nails so overgrown that they were embedded in the paws. Two of the rescued animals have given birth to puppies, adding 13 dogs, and several others are pregnant.

Yep, Nathan J. Winograd, you can thank yourself for this bullshit. This is just one of many. At least in the shelter they can die quickly and humanely whereas in your shelters they suffer needlessly and then die, if they are lucky. Just think, Brenda Barnette wants to make LA a "no kill", will it be like this one?
