Shelter Animals Count

Collaborating for life. 

"A variety of efforts have been undertaken over the past few decades to create a platform for shelter data reporting – from Asilomar Accords and Live Release Rates, to Naked Data – much has been learned. There is strong desire to come together to create a standardized database system to collect baseline information nationally. 

So in late 2011, a cross-section of animal welfare agencies banded together to create and share a National Shelter Database that would enable the measurement of progress in animal welfare, to inspire life-saving collaboration and have a positive impact over pet homelessness over time. 

This steering committee outlined a vision and in the Fall of 2012, adopted a formal governing Board of Directors and incorporated Shelter Animals Count, a new, independent, non-profit created to share and steward a national database of sheltered animals that provides facts and enables insights to save lives."
