No-Kill 2025

Every shelter in every community, nationwide.

Last year, about 347,000 dogs and cats were killed in our nation's shelters just because they didn't have safe places to call home. But people like you are changing that.

Animal shelters, local stakeholders, lifesaving groups, and individual community members are working together to take collective responsibility for at-risk pets right where they live. Together, we can create compassionate no-kill communities nationwide for pets and the people who care for them.
