Intake and Outcome Database (IOD)™

Shelter Animals Count Intake and Outcome Database (IOD) was designed to serve as a tool for basic data collection. It is a simple database containing what many (including Asilomar, ASPCA, National Federation of Humane Societies, American Humane, UC Davis, Maddie’s Fund, PetSmart Charities, HSUS, and Shelter Animals Count) have agreed are the minimum data points (along with definitions) an organization should gather.

 

Whether organizations already gather a great deal of data or have only gathered the basics, this database provides a common framework. This database does not reflect any preference in data analysis or the calculation of rates but is rather simply a tool for data collection.

 

 

The Intake and Outcome Database only tracks services provided to animals counted as an intake/outcome.
