We're saving lives one at a time. And when you add them up, you get some pretty impressive numbers! Tracking those numbers is how we measure our progress in saving lives and helps us identify how to best help the most at-risk animals.
As a founding member of Animal Shelter Alliance of Portland (ASAP), HSSW uses the internationally-recognized shelter statistic gathering and reporting methods of the Asilomar Accords. This ensures we use the same language and definitions when reporting on the status of the animals in our care and helps us track our community’s save rate.
At HSSW, we are committed to ending the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals. As an open-admission shelter, HSSW accepts companion animals regardless of breed, health or behavior. Our staff and volunteers provide support and life-saving rehabilitation for the animals in our care. These efforts make our community one of the safest for pets. HSSW is proud to have a save rate of 92.9% and as a member of ASAP, HSSW contributes to an overall Portland/Vancouver Metro area save rate of 94.7%Take a look at our annual population reports below:
