The idea behind North Shore Animal Center is to create a shelter that doesn’t kill animals. It’s more than just having policies against euthanizing; it includes practices where no animal will be put down for any reason other than they’re too suffering or vicious. The killing of animals is not done because there’s no room at the shelter or because they’re sick or disabled. Shelters following these practices save more than 90% of the animals.
What does a private shelter do?
Private shelters are good at finding homes for animals. However, they often kill or refuse to take care of hard-to-home pets, including those with chronic but treatable medical conditions, disabilities that aren’t life-threatening, and older shy pets. Additionally, many private animal welfare organizations still keep their furry friends in cages which never means long-term housing options.
What does a municipal shelter do?
There are many municipal shelters in America, but they all have something that makes them unique. Some do an excellent job at reuniting animals with their owners or finding new homes for strays. In contrast, others fail to meet minimum standards because these departments fall under large governments, because of which they get less funding and staff than needed.
Often, these centers are staffed by people who have no background or caring attitude towards the pets they’re tasked to care about — and many try their best not to do anything but kill as many creatures quickly as possible so that things will go away on behalf of them!
So, the importance of a No Kill shelter is unimaginable. Some of the reasons for considering a No Kill shelter include:
- Boost adoptions
- Attracts and retains more volunteers who know how to take care of animals
- Improves staff morale
- Generates greater community support
- Creates better alignment with a charitable mission
- Enhances image
- Sharpens and increases management skills
- Generates more funding
- More income = more organizational options
