Members of the Metro Denver Shelter Alliance – Colorado

These members include over 25 different shelters and organizations who are dedicated to reducing euthanasia rates and increasing live outcomes. The collective live outcome rate in 2012 for the Metro Denver Shelter Alliance was 85 percent (up from 72 percent in 2005).According to an article published in Animal Sheltering, “MDSA is able to track its collective live-release rate thanks to two central principles that its members have agreed on: a common, nonjudgmental language that’s clearly defined and consistently used, and statistical transparency.”It’s great to see communities coming together for the animals, and the Metro Denver Shelter Alliance is paving the way for a successful model.
