No Kill sheltering means that a shelter saves all healthy and treatable pets.
Some people claim that an Open Admission shelter or animal control facility cannot also be a No Kill shelter (Open Admission means that the facility cannot or does not say no to intakes).
But, those people are wrong.
According to the No Kill Advocacy Center,
"Almost 1,000,000 people live in communities saving at least 98% of the animals. Roughly 10,000,000 people live in communities saving 90% or more of dogs
and cats in their shelters.
Some 40,000,000 live in communities saving 80% or more of dogs and cats. And the numbers continue to grow.
For those who want proof — just the stats and nothing else — demonstrating that many communities across the country are saving 95%, 99% and in a few cases 100% of the animals, click here."
Do not believe the myth that an Open Admission shelter cannot stop killing healthy and treatable pets.
It is already being done across the country.
