SVACA Saved 91% in 2014

Post Date:04/06/2015

MFIn 2014, the Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority (SVACA) achieved a 91% overall live release rate and saved all healthy and treatable animals.  93% of dogs, 90% of cats, and 96% of ‘other’ animals (rabbits, hamsters, birds, reptiles, etc.) were saved. 

These figures meet how "no kill" shelters are often measured; all healthy and treatable animals or at least 90% saved.

The collection and publication of the statistics is sponsored by Maddie's Fund.  SVACA has received grant funds from Maddie's Fund which are used to help save SVACA's animals. Learn more about SVACA's statistics and how you can help make a difference for the animals.
