Ever wonder how your community’s shelter lifesaving stacks up? We’ve just updated our comparative database with 2012 data, with 2013 on its way early next year!


Maddie’s Fund® is collecting shelter data (dogs and cats only) based on the Asilomar Accords from more than 500 animal welfare organizations. We’ve compiled this data along with demographic information into a searchable database that is available to non-profit agencies, government programs, private citizens and the media to compare different communities’ lifesaving efforts.

Search categories include:

  • Geographic Region
  • Median income
  • Size of human population
  • Total intake
  • Total adoptions
  • Total deaths
  • Live release rate
  • Deaths per 1,000 human population
