Nathan Winograd Ignores Failure of "No-Kill" In Delaware

Tout The Product, But Ignore The Failures

Ignorance and denial of accountability is rampant within the "No-Kill" movement.  Not only did the post by one or our "No-Kill" advocates conveniently disappear when she reached out for help in the final days of Safe Haven on Mr. Winograd's Facebook page, but Mr. Winograd continues to run away from providing the answers as to why "No-Kill" and CAPA has been such a failure in Delaware.

He take's no accountability for the fact that since CAPA was enacted, that we've seen the failure of "No-Kill" dog control for just one county under Safe Haven, or the fact that they failed despite the help of many other "No-Kill" shelters across the state. Nor does he explain why shelters in Delaware have faced losses since they've changed to "No-Kill" or after CAPA was enacted, and ultimately the Safe Haven bankruptcy.

Even when a gentleman asked him the question on his Facebook page, Mr. Winograd just sniped back and ignored the many excellent points that Mr. Willard made, and then deleted Mr. Willard so his followers would not see the reality of Delaware under CAPA.
Chuck Willard - I realize any movement will have setbacks, and I think that the shelter community as a whole be it "no kill" or not wants the same outcomes for the animals in their care. What I don't understand is the total lack of accountability and transparency with the "no kill" movement. Around this time last year, you were touting the Delaware CAPA laws as a huge victory for animals and "no kill" advocates. With the recent closings of the Safe Haven shelter contracted by the Georgetown, Delaware community to provide "no kill" shelter services, would you please explain to the layman why a shelter with increased funding, laws mandating their existence, and a committed director that followed the "no kill equation" went into crushing debt, had all of the board of directors resign their positions, and ultimately lead to the shutdown of the facility and the euthanization of 19 dogs that had been locked inside a cage for over a year in some cases? What could have been done differently? Also, before you point that self-righteous finger at someone claiming their complicity in the "killing" of 4,000,000 animals a year, like in your above post, remember that all of the "no kill" shelters getting city contracts for animal control services that do things like limit admissions, release/abandon cats on the streets, and warehouse animals until they can no longer afford to are also complicit in the awful outcomes that result.

Nathan Winograd - Chuck, do not come on my page and start casting accusations about self-righteousness. Hannah came on the page and called the movement to save lives and the successful implementation of that effort in hundreds of communities across the country a "joke." To the animals who now live instead of die, it's offensive and I will respond to that without hesitation and without equivocation and if that offends you, so be it. Self righteous? I call it right and wrong.

Whereas if you look at the screenshot below, you will see that while Mr. Winograd ignored the many questions about the failure of "No-Kill" in Delaware, he had a ton to say to Hannah who called the movement a "joke".  So obviously his lack of any response to Mr. Willard shows the movements attempt to sweep Delaware's failure under the carpet and pretend it never happened.

Nathan Winograd can try and sweep the mess he's made in Delaware with CAPA under the carpet, but other states have seen it and that's why CAPA has failed in every other state it's been introduced, and those states will continue to look at the many intended consequences that resulted - from shelter financial losses and Safe Haven's bankruptcy, to the closed shelter doors that have left thousands of defenseless animals on our streets to fend for themselves.

The Failure Of The "No-Kill" Business Model

No-Kill Delaware asked the following question today and actually proves our point that the "No-Kill" agenda in Delaware has been a failed business model:
"When Pan Am went bankrupt, did anyone argue that the airline business could not succeed? Of course not. Everyone knew it was one company that failed, not the whole industry. That is the same with Safe Haven. It is just one No Kill shelter that failed because of mismanagement. The failure of Safe Haven doesn't "prove" that No Kill shelters can't succeed." - No-Kill Delaware Facebook Page 2/2/14

The fact is, the previous business model for the airline industry was a failure after government deregulation of the industry, and as you can see, laws do affect industries and result in a failed business model.  Below is a list of the many airline failures that have resulted after the airline deregulation of 1978. So it wasn't just Pan Am, it was the whole industry and business model that imploded as an unintended consequence of deregulation.

No-Kill Delaware touts the success of several "No-Kill" shelters in our state, but she doesn't address why one of the "No-Kill" shelters chose to walk away from dog control for Wilmington after CAPA was enacted.  Or why the other "No-Kill" shelters haven't bid on dog control to show us that it can be done.  It appears that those shelters seem to know that "No-Kill" dog control isn't possible, even with CAPA.

So thank you to No-Kill Delaware for helping us to show that misguided laws like CAPA do result in shelter financial losses and bankruptcies.  Other states need to see that poor laws like CAPA have catastrophic consequences resulting in financial losses for animal shelters, and have an impact on the animals they care for when a shelter's limited resources are depleted as a result.
