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.

Of the 10 euthanasias in 2020, seven were medical euthanasias for terminally ill dogs with a poor prognosis and poor quality of life, and three dogs were euthanized for behavioral issues that were deemed to make the dogs unsafe to adopt. Additionally, one dog suffered an accidental death after escaping her foster home and being hit by a car.
