YEAR IN REVIEW: 2016
- 46 animals in the program on January 1
- 540 animals came into our care
- 488 animals were adopted to new loving homes
- Live Release Rate**: 97%
** A shelter’s “Live Release Rate” is the number of live outcomes (which includes beginning animal count as well as new intakes) divided by the number of total outcomes.
Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue gives every animal in our care the time and support they need to find a loving home. However, because we take in some very vulnerable and sick dogs and cats, including newborn orphaned kittens, seniors, special needs cases and dogs in very advanced stages of heart worm disease—some of the animals in our care do pass away or are humanely euthanized to end suffering.
Mostly Mutts could not be successful without the support of our 290+ volunteers and 100+ approved foster families. They are the foundation of our organization and their love and dedication to animals is truly admirable. Starting in 2017, we are tracking the total number of volunteer hours and look forward to sharing that information with you when it becomes available.
