Adoptions in 2016: 97% Save Rate
Our 2016 Statistics from SHELTERANIMALSCOUNT.ORG
HHS adopted 551 animals in 2016, with a 97% save rate. Pets at HHS remain available for adoption as long as necessary (sometimes six months or more), and are never euthanized for space reasons.
The HHS save rate of 97% includes 128 animals taken from high volume municipal shelters where they otherwise may have been euthanized. We also took in 440 strays from the streets of our own community, making it a safer place for the people that live here, as well as their pets.
