Nathan Winograd spends 100% of his time and donations NOT helping animals but himself

Nathan Winograd claims his non-profit No Kill Law and Advocacy Center's mission is "The No Kill Advocacy Center Is working to end the systematic killing of animals in shelters through direct assistance, education, litigation, legislation, advocacy, conferences, seminars, publications, studies, and more." His main programs are his annual conference which costs him $111K and brings in $82K. Another one of his "programs" is a "feature length film about himself." $21K in expenses, no revenue in 2013. He says he DIRECTLY helps shelters, rescue groups which costs him $79K with no revenue. He admits he's a lobbyist. How is he helping them directly when he  has no animal related expenses, costs? Telling a dog that PETA kills animals does not help dogs.

Nathan works 40 hours a week and makes $60,000/yr paid by donations to his non-profit. He lives off of his non-profit.

He pays $55K/yr for "professional programmatic services." WTH is that? Is this just a way to secretly funnel more money to himself? He claims he is an SPCA, humane society. No, he is not. He did not file as an SPCA. That is a completely different type of corporation. He's a lawyer and knows he's not a 10400 corporation i.e., "§ 10400. Formation; number and qualifications of organizers; articles of incorporation. Corporations for the prevention of cruelty to animals may be formed under the Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation Law (Part 2 (commencing with Section 5110)) by 20 or more persons, who shall be citizens and residents of this state. If the corporation is formed on or after January 1, 2011, its articles of incorporation shall specifically state that the corporation is being formed pursuant to this section."

He claims he provides direct assistance to animals, animal shelters and animal rescue groups. I don't see $1 spent on animal food, animal supplies, veterinary bills....nothing. He spends less to help animals than PETA, HSUS, ASPCA, Best Friends... Who the hell is he to state they barely spend anything to help animals when he spends nothing, zero, zip?

Nathan Winograd has received $1,234,145 from the public from 2009 to 2013 yet he has not spent one penny on animals. Nathan tells people to follow the money and that is what I'm doing.

Below is first page of Nathan Winograd's 990 tax return for 2013 for his non-profit personal piggy bank No Kill Law and Advocacy Center. Obviously having a non-profit is more profitable to him than having a for-profit No Kill Solutions which he had to shut down because he was not making enough money. Notice Nathan is the accountant and did the books.

2013 990

I went back two more years. Nathan has not spent anything on animals. How does he think yelling at PETA, HSUS, ASPCA helps animals? It doesn't. For people in the know he looks like an idiot. All the well respected organizations have no respect for Nathan Winograd who just rabble rouses. Cities, Counties definitely don't want to have anything to do with him after he's stabbed them in the back. There's a reason he was fired from SFSPCA besides mere breach of contract.

2012 990

2011 990. He spent $147K making a film about himself, $90K to host a conference to honor himself, $54K to help shelters, rescue groups by talking at them. No direct assistance with animals. He spent $291K and not one penny went to animals. He gave himself another $60K in salary. Every penny went to Nathan or to honor him. He made $165K in membership dues. People pay to join his group just to read his articles? He got $50K from people who registered for his conference where he praises himself. He had $55K in office expenses. He doesn't even have an office. He spent $90K for himself to go to other conferences and meetings. I think this was his book tour. He had $96K in professional services. Like what? I bet he shoveled more money to himself in this category.

Here is the history of Nathan Winograd when he was No Kill Solutions a for-profit consulting company that went under. I wrote these articles years ago and just reposted them here.

My personal history and interactions with Nathan Winograd dating back to 2005

Nathan Winograd the misinformation machine. His attacks against PETA, HSUS, ASPCA, Best Friends are generally false.

Here's a Nathan Winograd timeline I made when I tried to verify his claims.

Honest article about one of Nathan Winograd's presentations. I was there and can vouch for the crazy things he said. They are also directly quoted in his book. He really said that "cats are more likely to get rabies from humans than we are to get rabies from cats."

  1. Good job explaining all the confusing things we read. Thanks for being there and keeping on top of animal advocacy issues.

  2. Thank you for getting the facts out there! It would be a miracle if some of Nathan's sheeples would actually read this, but I would hope some of them would see the light when presented with facts.

  3. Sounds like BAD RAP who killed 2 Spindletop refugees and many Katrina refugees, but pull down a six figure salary and pay for their bay area estate with donation money.

  4. Valuable information! Looking forward to seeing your notes posted.
