Animal Statistics

At BrightSide we are proud of our success at matching pets needing homes with humans wanting pets. We also are able to return many lost pets to their owners.

Our dedication to the high-save mission results in a very high save rate (called the “live release rate” in the animal-welfare world) of 97%. This rate is calculated by dividing the number of live outcomes (animals leaving the shelter through adoption, transfer to another organization, or return to owner) by all outcomes, not counting animals that died while in the care of the shelter, were lost from the shelter, or that were untreatable and were euthanized at the request of the owner.
