All dogs are individuals, so Best Friends and other shelters are working to see if removing speculative breed identifications help or hurt the adoption process.
Many shelter pit bull terrier identifications are wrong, which can result in grave consequences. Removing labels allows adopters to pick on merits, not stereotypes.
Returning lost pets to their homes is a priority, but strategies other than long shelter hold times should be implemented to Save Them All.
Managed admission, rather than on-demand relinquishment of cats and dogs to shelters, results in more positive outcomes for the animals and more lives saved.
Best Friends co-founder corrects many of the inaccuracies surrounding no-kill policies and practices and offers resources to save more lives.
New collaborative shelter-based campaign provides initiatives to keep cats out of animal shelters and produce a positive outcome for those who do.
