Where are pets most in need of help? Reaching no-kill by 2025 means that every shelter in our country is getting the community support it needs to save every dog and cat who can be saved. When a shelter is saving at least 90% of the dogs and cats entering, that shelter is designated as no-kill. Use the pet lifesaving dashboard below to explore lifesaving nationwide and for shelters where you live. Watch a video tutorial on how to use the pet lifesaving dashboard.
