With their limited budget, marketing and exposure are done through social media and with in person adoption events and fairs in the community. Word of mouth from adopters and others are an excellent advertisement for their good work.

Bob and Shellie work with folks to ensure a smooth transition to an adoptive home, and are very clear that they will always take an animal back if the adopter does not feel able to provide their forever home. They talk through strategies to work with behavioral issues and if folks fall on hard times, they will foster the dog (if that is desired) until the person is able to provide a home once more. They have done this several times that I am aware of.

Adoption meet-and-greets are coordinated to suit the needs of the potential adopter(s) as well as the animal(s) being considered. All animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, are microchipped, and are up to date on shots.
Foster Care 5 average

Robin Hood Animal Rescue has a dedicated volunteer and foster base that cares for their cats and dogs. They work will animals that are behaviorally challenged, and those that other groups may have given up on, or that may have been left to die by other rescues.
Rescue Groups 5 average

Robin Hood cares for all of the animals in their care, and they do so for a lifetime. They work to ensure that each animal is adopted to a forever home. In the event that something happens, Robin Hood Animal Rescue will take the animal back into care, or work to help a family through a tough situation. They have 'return fostered' more than one dog for folks who have lost their homes and just need time to get back on their feet, and are once more able to provide a home for their pet.
Feral Cat TNR Program 5 average

In the past several years, Robin Hood Animal Rescue has helped several friends address neighborhood feral cat colonies and individual cats by providing traps and techniques, and transport to the spay/neuter clinics.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.
