Basic Data Matrix
Shelter Animals Count is using the Basic Data Matrix, developed by the National Federation of Humane Societies, as the foundation for the database and as a basis for the minimum data shelters should be collecting and reporting.

Coalition Builder Tool
Shelter Animals Count has added a tool - Coalition Builder - that makes the data portal even more valuable for our participating shelters and rescues, as well as coalition leaders across the country.
