Case Study

Getting a Government Shelter to “No Kill” with Grit, Gumption and Progressive Programming Case Study

InnovationAlliance for Innovation Recommended

by County of Pima, Arizona for the Alliance for Innovation

In 2013, Pima County knew it could do better. Like most municipal animal shelters, it collaborated with rescue organizations, relied heavily on compassionate volunteers, and supported spay and neuter programs. And like most municipal animal shelters, it was euthanizing more than a third of the dogs and cats it housed.

Pima County serves a large urban population with significant service demands. The recession had further eroded available resources and strained budgets, making additional investment unlikely. County leadership knew the public had a higher standard – and decided to hire a development professional to ask for the community’s help in meeting it.

This is wonderful news and this case study needs to be shared so more communities are aware of it. I tried to give it a 5 star rating but am running into technical difficulty. Will also share a blog post about pet grants: http://blog.ecivis.c..

p.s. My own two dogs are rescues, you can't ask for better companions! Believe me, they KNOW they have been rescued.
