Statistics

Young-Williams Animal Center believes in transparency which is why we openly share our shelter statistics with the public. The information below is data commonly used to measure success in animal sheltering, including the “Save Rate”. The “Save Rate” is the calculation of animals that leave our shelter alive divided by our total intake, as is the industry best practice. We also report our statistics nationally through Shelter Animals Count along with over 4,000 other shelters. For any questions about our data, please feel free to e-mail animalcenter@young-williams.org.

 

So far in 2017 (January-November) 1,188 fewer animals were euthanized compared to the same time period last year
