”The forward-thinking and transparent reporting developed for Pinellas County will promote the collaboration needed to develop proactive and targeted projects that have the biggest impact on life-saving," states Dr. Julie Levy, director of the Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida.
Live release is calculated using the ASPCA’s formula. The rate is calculated by dividing the number of live outcomes (animals returned to their owners, adopted, or transferred to other organizations) by the number of live (strays, owner surrenders, etc.) admissions.
Pinellas County animal organizations communitywide reporting of animal statistics SPCA Tampa Bay, Humane Society of Pinellas, Pinellas County Animal Services, and PetPal Animal Shelter began reporting combined animal statistics for Pinellas County in November 2012. All Pinellas animal welfare groups are invited to add their numbers to our combined report.
The Pinellas reporting matrix was created by the National Federation of Humane Societies.
The objective is to create a shared reporting methodology. Figures and rates are shown for dogs, cats and other species - rabbits, hamsters, birds, wildlife.
