Q1 2020 Data Now Available

May 18, 2020, 12:30 PM

The Shelter Animals Count national database now includes data from 2011 - March 2020 from over 5,000 organizations. 

The data is viewable through interactive Data Dashboards. The dashboards feature simplified and detailed views for community and organizational data with geographic, summary, comparative and timeline pages. You can use filters to change the year and can also layer in community demographics from US Census data. The data is also available by request.

Changes to the 2020 intake and outcomes of sheltered cats and dogs are apparent in the data. March is usually the start of a seasonal uptick in shelter intake, but 2020 shows a downturn. Be sure to check out the national database COVID-19 Impact Reports, updated monthly.
