Shelter Animals Count

 

The National Database Project

The Leon County Humane Society is excited to partner with Shelter Animals Count.

"Shelter Animals Count exists to create an effective infrastructure for complete and accurate shelter reporting to truly understand the risk factors, use this data to implement effective strategies and positively impact all lifesaving efforts."

LCHS began reporting to Shelter Animals Count in August 2016 and will be reporting monthly. Visit www.shelteranimalscount.org for more information.
