What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Our goal is to eliminate the unnecessary euthanasia of adoptable pets through collaboration efforts with our source and receiving shelters.

We reduce euthanasia numbers by providing transport services for animals in overpopulated areas and also provide funds for spay and neuter services in these communities.

We already see a drop in numbers of animals euthanized in the shelters we work with and believe we can make an even bigger difference by initiation our Spay it Forward program in our targeted communities.

We ask our source shelters to provide live release numbers on a yearly basis to watch these numbers rise.

We have helped our reporting source shelters increase their transport resources and thus increase their live release rate for dogs.
