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.

He did not have any of and we took him to our vet and he does not have an I'd chop either. He is a male unneutered pitbull or mix. He is small, weighs around 35 pounds.

I have 5 kittens ready to be gone. I want them to go to good homes with no chance of being euthanized. Also, have some older cats, most are solid white with blue eyes or one blue and one green. My problem is that some are deaf as the two different color eyes are a trait for deafness. These would need an INDOOR home. Please help me find these kittens/cats a forever, safe home. Thank you so much ! [email protected]

Hi, Our single neighbor passed away 12/29/14 and left 4 female, un-spayed, outside cats who all migrated over to our house. In the meantime, we ended up with 7 kittens from several of the moms. My husband took 2 of the moms (1 pregnant that had not previously had kittens), and 1 kitten to the Orange Co Animal Shelter in Chapel Hill. He left them there, although when he read the fine print he wasn't happy with seeing that they would eventually euthanize if NOT adopted. Anyhow, we are going to keep the youngest 3 kittens, 1 female & 2 males, because that is all we really can afford to have fixed and take care of (in addition to our own fixed adult male). That leaves 2 adult females and 3 kittens, probably about 2 months old. Because of the policy at the Chapel Hill shelter, he now doesn't want to take them there. We think we can get them all into our trap or large kennel. Will you all take them or can you give us some suggestions? We live in Orange County. He thinks one of the moms may be in heat and we just can't handle more kitties. Thank you so much, Dee

My brother recently died, leaving behind 18 rescued cats. We are able to keep four but desperately need homes for the other fourteen, all of which have been spayed or neutered. We are especially concerned about finding homes for the five cats that have FIV. They are small, sweet and well-behaved and are our favorites. Please help! You can contact me at [email protected] Thank you! Susan Parrott
