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.

My son and daughter-in-law have 2 American Bulldoga, that they no longer have the time or space and the dogs are not receiving the attention they need.. Al, the male has a pretty laid back personality, while Rose is more territorial, and doesn't interact well with all dogs. I am willing to buy dog food for a year for the both of them if the shelter is able to take them. Please help or give me some direction. 🙂🐶

Message: Hi, I am writing you as we have a male cat looks like Morris that has been fixed and survived the winter with us up here at my work. I have tried to find a home for him on facebook to no avail. He is very friendly and I believe he would be very adoptable. We are not able to feed him (although the clients have been doing so) as it is a liability issue and the bosses want him gone. I had heard there is a cat sanctuary on the west side of Hamilton but have been unable to find any info on them. Please let me know if you can help in any way or if you have any suggestions. He really deserves a good home and want to see him safe.

There is a chocolate lab named Patricia that was at the Western Hills Petsmart a few wks. ago. Does she still need a home. And will she be coming back to this store on your next visit? I have a friend that might be interested in providing a forever home if Patricia gets along with other dogs and is housebroken.

We've got a few cats that live in the apartment complex next to us; they've never had homes but are people-friendly (range from 10 mos to 12 weeks old). We're going to take the older ones to get fixed but need to find homes for all of them immediately as the weather is very bad. ALSO an older female cat showed up at my house a month ago and wont leave. She's fixed, is VERY sweet, doesn't claw anything and needs a home. I already took in 2 cats and have 5 pets so I just cannot keep her. THe SPCA says they will put her down if I bring her in since she is older. Cindy Johnson 513 353-0131 (Western Hills area)

Hello, my wife recently took in a stray female cat she found that has had it's front claws removed. The cat seems well tempered and allows my toddler to mess with it but I'm allergic to cats and I have two big dogs that don't care for it. I would prefer not to take it to the SPCA but I haven't had any luck finding a owner and the no kill shelters I've called have no room. Need help! Doug 5133491556.

I have 2 cats that I love but can no longer keep. They are 10 years old, spayed and declawed. I need to find them a kind and loving home as soon as possible, as I'm moving Aug 1 and cannot take them with me. Thank you so much.
