Launched in 2014, No-Kill Utah (NKUT) is an initiative of Best Friends Animal Society that, along with a coalition of 56 Utah-based animal welfare organizations, is designed to make Utah a no-kill state by 2019. Forming coalitions is no easy task but NKUT provided a vision of a common purpose that is quickly strengthening collaboration among diverse groups - and saving more lives than ever. Learn how three leading agencies are breaking live release rate records - and how you can, too. This presentation by Arlyn Bradshaw, Executive Director of Best Friends Animal Society–Utah, was recorded at the 2016 Best Friends National Conference.
