Outcome Information

DRBC and Shelter Animals Count

Shelter Animals Count is a new, collaborative initiative formed by a diverse group of stakeholders to create and share a national database of sheltered animal statistics, providing facts, and enabling insights that will save lives. Why DRBC is involved and what our numbers look like can all be found here!

DRBC collects information from January through December using a Basic Data Matrix. The data presented in the dashboards within this section is reported to Shelter Animals Count as DRBC opts into transparency for providing their data to the public. This data shown was collected for the current calendar year and is updated on a monthly basis.
