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 2 cats I rescued, between 2-3 years old, neutered, up to date on shots. One is a Russian Blue, the other pure white with 1 green and 1 blue eye. Good health except white one tends to get a "weepy" eye. They get along well with dogs, kids, adults etc. They have bed, litter box, brand new carrier food bowls, toys etc. My boys are sweet and good. It kills me to have to rehome them, but my husband and I have to move to a senior home and can't take them. We move May 31 and I am desperate to find them a loving home. Any questions call me at 513-312-4236

Hello, I have two beautiful, healthy, neutered male cats who have been part of our family for 10 years. I am currently disabled with no income and can no longer care for them in the manner they deserve. This is particularly hard as I have been a strong participant as a foster pet parent in the past and I feel as I am betraying them. I really need to place them in a safe home to ensure their quality of life. Please let me know if you can help. I also had to move due to my disability and fear eviction as they are not allowed here. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I have a 2 year old Aussie mix named Percy. He is about 70 pounds (a big boy). He is neutered and as sweet as can be with ME. Unfortunately, he is not so sweet with strangers who come to our house and my 12 year old son with autism has become a bit timid around him. He has never bit anyone but, has growled and bared his teeth. He is also a cat chaser. On a good note, he is house trained and knows basic commands as well as give me paw. He is very smart and with a little work and a place for him to run I believe he will make someone a great pet/family member. I know a shelter would put him down. You can contact me by calling 513-724-0283

Hello, I have found a stray male kitten outside of my home that is in need of a forever home. a Very kind and sweet cat. I named him Larry. I am unable to keep him because I have another cat with special needs, that also does not get along with other cats. If you have any openings, I would be so greatly appreciative. He is such an amazing candidate for adoption. It sickens me that someone could just abandon such a sweet soul. I also made a post on craigslist that you can view here with pictures: http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/pet/4656148769.html Please feel free to call me at 614-735-0102 or e-mail me at [email protected] with suggestions :)

Hello I have a mini lab whom is 2 years old. She has dominant issues as her and my other dog who is 4 years old do not get along all of a sudden. We had her since she was a baby in which we had to take her from my mother inlaw because she was aloud to have animals. I think the reason she all of sudden has the dominance is due to wanting to seek all attention and also I feel that she was winged away from her mother to soon. She does have fear aggression as more due to if she doesn't know someone, she will feel unease as she has to protect herself. She never has bitten nobody, but when she sees the our other dog, she goes into attack mode. We have a loving home and we trained her very well. She is fixed and sometimes I also feel that msy has caused her hormones to just change. I do not want to drop her off at the pound due to I know they would put her asleep. I feel that if you take her, she can be rehabilitated. Please do not ignore this message, I am so stressed and hurt that I have been tried everything as even paying a dog trainer to come and see how to fix the problem, but that was a waste. I read your site and I feel this is my last hope so please email me back at [email protected] and my name is Mrs Toya Herndon and my dog's name is Bella in which we call her Bellaboo. thank you and look forward to hear back from you

Hello, I have a pit/boxer mix female. She is 4 years old. Such a loveable, loyal dog whom I love and is such a large part of our family. I am moving and cannot take her with me, unfortunately.

We are in the Cincinnati area. Thank you for your time and patience, Tara

I have found a very small very hungry adorable kitten on 3/23/14 and she needs a forever home. I cannot keep her because I already have four adult cats whom I may have to find three of them a home as well. I am currently homeless and staying with family temporarily. So bring in another animal at this time is not an option. I do not want this kitten killed or just tossed outside. She is very clean and flea free. please someone contact me about finding her a forever home. Thank you so much. Pamela
