How many animals enter our nation’s shelters? How many animals are moving among shelters and rescues as transfers? What can we learn from other communities where more, or fewer, lives are saved? These – and so many other questions – can be answered if shelters and rescues agree that we can turn data into lives saved. In fact, what if there was a database of sheltered animal statistics?
Good news! A national database exists! This collaborative project is a first-of-its-kind initiative to gather data at local, state and national levels on animals in American shelters. Learn about the database and how your organization can participate.
