Herb Moniz is very passionate about the animals and doesn't put up with people bad mouthing his organization and he shouldn't. All the people who jumped on that hooches hero bandwagon without knowing that he attacked EVERYTHING not just males but females and staff maybe you have seen a dog before attacking someone next time you do go get that dog and take it home for your little kids to play with maybe when it attacks your family and you have it put down you'll get railroaded like he has

Obviously this is not a NO KILL organization, taking an animal that you rescued from a shelter and dumping them at a high kill shelter is unacceptable. Yes you rescued Hooch from one shelter only to dump him at another one to do your dirty work, just because the death did not occur by your hand, you were still responsible.

Try to maintain a good public image but all the people slandering the rescue and everyone that believe everything they read and never come and meet the wonderful people working so hard to help the animals hinders progress but in the end they are only hurting more animals by making CVAAGs job harder

They are in the public eye. And they ask for donations constantly saying animal shelters have begged them to take their thousands of puppies.

I'm fostering 2 dogs and a litter of puppies now. They need more foster help if the only thing your offering is criticism then your being useless

Picking up an animal from a shelter and dropping it a high kill shelter only to be euthanized less than 24 hours later is not a rescue.

This group pulls dogs from one shelter where they are being networked, takes their funding and pledges and then DUMPS them in other high kill shelters. When a dog is dumped by a rescue they usually die and numerous dogs have died because of this. The latest was a Bladen County dog named Hooch. They picked him up after lunch and drove three hours to their rescue. By 4:45 he was turned into a high kill shelter and was dead the next morning.

Putting an unaltered male in cages with other males and then complaining because the dog attacked others shows a complete lack of common sense. Taking said animal to a high kill shelter only to be euthanized less than 24 hours later is not what a rescue is about, in no way was Hooch given a chance at life by this rescue.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.
