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.

I have a 7 year old welsh corgi who regrettably bite my niece who was visiting from Ireland last week. I am wondering if you would be able to find a home for him. He really is a good dog, smart and a great companion. I don't want to put him down but unfortunately I have many kids coming in and out of the house and I am super nervous he might bite again!

Hi, My grandparents passed away last month and they owned a beautiful gray and white long haired cat. We’ve been trying to find him a new home as i have a new baby and cannot take in the cat. The cat is very sweet, he’s about 9 or 10 years old. Are you taking in cats right now? Please help. He was my grandparents’ pride and joy. Would really love to see him go to a good family. thanks, Eliza

I am currently desperate to find someone or some group to take over a non-profit cat shelter. The gentleman who ran it past away September of last year. He left it in my care, however I am not financially able to continue operations. They have a 5 acre property with a 4 bedroom house, a 3 bedroom mobile home, 2 car garage, 2 sheds, a lot with water, sewage, and electrical hook up for a rental, and 2 large barns. The shelter's name is Tuffys Place Feline Sanctuary Inc. it is located in Afton, NY. In order to liquidate it I need to turn it over to another 501(c3) shelter. I am looking for a no kill shelter as Tuffys cats are lifetime residents. I'm thinking if the property sells I would be able to turn them over along with the proceeds. The property is in very good shape and the cats are well taken care of. However I need to find a no kill shelter. If I don't find a place soon the town will put the property up for auction and God knows what will happen to those cat's lives. Please someone help us. We need some kind of intervention. You can reach me ,Isabella, at 607-226-3218.
