More than 70% of cats who enter our nation’s animal control pounds and shelters are killed. Do you know what happens to cats in YOUR local shelter? Our new guide will help you find out!

Alley Cat Allies is working to establish and increase shelter transparency. Making meaningful and accessible shelter data available allows taxpayers and donors to hold pounds and animal shelters accountable and enables decision makers to make informed choices. For this reason, we support mandatory recordkeeping for all shelters.

Asking your local shelter to share their records with you will help you get the facts about outcomes for animals in your community–like how many cats are adopted or killed–and that information can help you advocate to make changes that save cats’ lives.
