This year alone, some four million dogs and cats will be die in our nation’s shelters. The vast majority can and should be placed into loving homes or should never enter shelters in the first place.
Because the data shows that every year, there are six times more people looking to acquire an animal than there are animals being killed in shelters.
Communities all across the US are achieving unprecedented results, saving upwards of 95% of all impounded animals in open admission animal control facilities. They are doing so because of their commitment to reject the kill-oriented failures of the past and putting in place the infrastructure to save lives. No community has ever achieved a “No Kill“ status without rigorous implementation of the “No Kill Equation.” We are proud to say that all elements of that model are represented at My Furry Valentine.
If a community wants success, this is the only way to go: nothing else has succeeded. This approach provides the only model that has ever achieved No Kill communities. By working with people, implementing lifesaving programs, and treating each life as precious, a shelter can transform a community. For more information, visit the No Kill Advocacy Center.
