HSSC is committed to transparency in all aspects of our organization. We track shelter statistics and report data monthly to Shelter Animals Count. Data are made publically available so that all who support HSSC can see the extent of our lifesaving impact.
HSSC had a save rate of 96.22% in 2020. Save Rate is (Total Live Intakes minus euthanasia and owner-intended euthanasia) divided by (Total Live Intakes minus owner-intended euthanasia). HSSC is a no-kill shelter, which means that no animal is ever euthanized to make space for another. Infrequently, HSSC must make the difficult decision to euthanize animals that have become too sick to be treated or too aggressive or behaviorally challenged to be suitable for adoption. HSSC takes a community approach to lowering euthanasia rates in our county. We work with several open-admission shelters throughout the region to transfer at-risk animals to our facility.
HSSC is a proud participant in Shelter Animals Count. To review the annual statistics, please use the data summary and timeline dashboards below.
