Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Each year, Philadelphia's animal control shelter takes in close to 20,000 homeless dog, cats and small animals. 15-20% of those animals never make it back out due to space constraints, lack of resources, and lack of homes. Citizens for a No-Kill Philadelphia aims to help prevent pets from being surrendered to the shelter, decreasing it's intake rates and increasing it's live release rate.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Founded in 2009, Citizens for a No-Kill Philadelphia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of taxpayers and pet lovers who are committed to saving all healthy and treatable companion animals in Philadelphia shelters, and working with the citizens of Philadelphia to prevent animals from entering our city's shelter system.

Citizens for a No-Kill Philadelphia wants to ensure that during difficult times, families are given the resources needed to keep their pets rather than feel forced to rehome them or surrender them to the shelter. In an effort to do so, CNKP has created its Community Pet Help Desk to offer resources and assistance to individuals and families in need. Through the use of its Community Pet Food Pantry, Behavior Assistance Program, Pet-Friendly Housing Resources, and Emergency Relief Resources, CNKP is dedicated to helping keep families together.

Citizens for a No-Kill Philadelphia maintains a team of experienced volunteers and a Board of Directors with an array of skills. It has developed it's surrender prevention efforts over the past five years.

Since the Community Pet Help Desk's creation in 2013, the number of dogs and cats surrendered to Philadelphia's animal control shelter by their owners has decreased by 38%. In 2018, CNKP expanded it's Help Desk to reside within the walls of the animal control shelter in order to reach more pet owners and thwart more needless pet surrenders.
