Updated to add: Over at Vegan Soapbox, Convenient Vegan reviewed Redemption at length earlier this year. I’d meant to link to her piece when I first posted this entry, but apparently had a brain freeze. My bad.
Back in March, I noted that the No Kill Advocacy Center was giving away free copies of Nathan J. Winograd’s Redemption: The Myth of Pet Overpopulation and the No Kill Revolution in America to “any elected official, staff reporter, or animal control director” who requests a copy.
First published in 2007, Redemption was expanded and updated in February 2009. To celebrate the new release (and clear out their old stock), the No Kill Advocacy Center is extending its original offer to include regular citizens who purchase a copy of the book – in other words, buy one (2009) copy of Redemption, get one (2007) free. Give it to a friend, a politician or policymaker, your local library, your veterinarian or vet clinic. (Or *cough* a certain favorite blogger! *cough*cough*) Anything to spread the word.
Here are the details:

Subject: We’re spreading the good news
A No Kill nation is within our reach!
As a new expanded and updated edition of Redemption is now available in bookstores and through Amazon, we are giving away our remaining first edition copies of Redemption, the book that is helping to revolutionize animal sheltering in the U.S.:
1. If you are the executive director of a shelter or rescue group and you identify the organization as No Kill on the home page of your website, we’ll give you a free copy.
2. If you are the executive director of a shelter and you have announced a No Kill goal on the home page of your website, we’ll give you a free copy.
3. If you are an elected official and want to learn more about the No Kill movement, we’ll give you a free copy.
4. If you are an animal lover and you recently purchased a second edition copy, we’ll give you a free copy.
Redemption is being called “powerful and inspirational,” “ground-breaking,” and “a must read for anyone who cares about animals.” Winner of USA Book News Award for Best Book (Animals/Pets), a Best Book Muse Medallion winner by the Cat Writers Association of America, a Best Book nominee by the Dog Writers Association of America and winner of a Silver Medal from the Independent Publishers Association, the book shatters the notion that killing animals in U.S. shelters is an act of kindness.
