Adoptions in 2017: 97% Save Rate
CAHS adopted 245 animals in 2017, with a 97% save rate. Pets at CAHS remain available for adoption as long as necessary (sometimes six months or more), and are never euthanized for space reasons.
The save rate, calculated according to the nationally recognized Asilomar Standard, ((Intake – Euthanasia Outcomes) divided by Intake) reflects the many options for pets that come to the shelter besides adoption, such as animal transfers and animals who are returned to their owner.
