They All Deserve Loving Homes
The EMCSPCA tracks the status of all pets it takes into care using the Basic Animal Data Matrix, a nationally recognized standard, provided by Shelter Animals Count. EMC SPCA is proud to say that in the first six months since opening the Center our intake has been 63 dogs and 98 cats. Of those, 52 dogs and 72 cats have been adopted and 11 dogs and 26 cats and kittens remain available. Intake is limited by space available as every animals that comes to us is quarantined, tested and examined for health issues, vaccinated and treated if necessary before they are available for adoption.
Save rate is an indication of the number of animals leaving a facility by means other than euthanasia or in-shelter death. Another term that is used synonymously with save rate is live release rate. Save rate/live release rates are important metrics to track, as a shelter achieving a 90%, or greater save rate, can identify itself as a no-kill shelter. Many leaders are raising the bar and stating that the real no-kill save rate should be 95%. Most important however, is saving every pet that is healthy and treatable. The EMCSPCA currently has a 100% live release rate.
