It's fair to say up front that Nathan Winograd is not a calm, easy-going kind of guy. He's a passionate advocate for shelter reform and animal welfare, and he does not mince words or give quarter to those who disagree with him.

The Winograds discuss, in sometimes painful detail, what's wrong in many American shelters: bad hours,...more

I am glad that I borrowed this book, rather than giving any of my money towards enlarging Nathan Winograd's already bloated ego. Winograd may have the right goal in mind, saving animals, but his lack of understanding of Animal Shelters, local Humane Societies and HSUS are inaccurate and seem to be purposefully distorted.

"Friendly Fire" can hardly be viewed as an informative source on the "No Kill Equation". It glazes over any helpful information and only serves to fill it's audience with fluff,...more
A difficult but important read for any animal lover that exposes the hypocrisy of our nation's largest animal shelters. Need for reform is urgent as millions of dogs' & cats' lives are at stake. This book's message will haunt but hopefully inspire you to take action in your local community. I know it did for me.

Amazing and brilliant! This was better than I expected and so informational. The truth needs to get out about what is really going on with our shelters/big name corporations that are trying to "help" animals.
