Data plays a crucial part in decision making, which is why we’re reminding you to input your Shelter Animals Count (SAC) data! Data has enabled our industry to compile a complete picture of the animals entering and leaving shelters. You can see how your data compares to those in other states or look up the data of specific organizations with SAC’s Data Dashboards. Data is current through July 2022.

If you are so inclined, on a recent Community Conversation, Shelter Animals Count Executive Director, Stephanie Filer and Samantha Hill, Director of Data and Technology will be shared details about the Shelter Animals Count 2022 Q2 report. The report provided insights to the first half of the year and a forecast for what we can expect the last half of the year.

As a reminder, shelter and rescue organizations must be active participants in Shelter Animals Count to be eligible for Maddie’s Fund® grants. Update your data and/or register on Shelter Animals Count’s website.
