THE NATIONAL DATABASE PROJECT

NCBR is proud to be part of the national movement to standardize data collection and increase transparency in the animal welfare community.  We share the belief held by organizations such as Best Friends Animal Society, Maddie’s Fund, and over 1700 other Best Friend Network Partners like us that increased transparency and more consistent reporting of our impact will help pave the way to more life-saving outcomes within our organization, locally, and nationally.

* Other Intakes includes dogs born in rescue.
** Shelter Euthanasia includes euthanasia for any reason, including medical euthanasia.

Of the 8 euthanasias we had in 2017, four were medical euthanasias for terminally ill dogs with a poor prognosis and poor quality of life, and four were euthanized for behavioral issues that were deemed to make the dogs unsafe to adopt.

ASPCA Live Release Rate for 2017 = 94.9%
This is calculated as our total live outcome divided by our total intake.

Asilomar Accords Live Release Rate for 2017 = 100%
This is calculated as our total live outcome divided by all outcomes minus unhealthy and untreatable animals.

Our Save Rate for 2017 = 91.8%
Save Rate is calculated as the total intake minus euthanasia outcomes, divided by intake.
