Voice of the People

On August 16, 2008 at 6 p.m. at the Valparaiso University Student Union, Nathan Winograd is going to speak. Winograd is a well-known national author and is an advocate of animal shelters around the country not killing adoptable animals.

He has written a book called Redemption which is the story of animal sheltering in the United States, a movement that he said was born out of compassion and has lost its way.

Winograd is a graduate of Stanford Law School, a former criminal prosecutor and attorney and was director of operations for the San Francisco Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, one of the most successful shelters in the nation.

His appearance is being sponsored by People for Animal Welfare, Inc. (PAW) and admission is free.

To register and make sure you have a seat for the event, you can go to

PAW is a private foundation set up to help the Porter County Animal Shelter.

I encourage all those who are interested in the welfare of animals to attend.
