Vision & Goals
We qualify as a No-Kill shelter,
but please call us a High Save shelter instead.
The No-Kill movement: It has become so ubiquitous, why don’t we just call our organization no-kill?

We are committed to transparency and accountability, and using that terminology negates both of those values.
What is the true definition of no-kill?
It depends who you ask:
Best Friends: Not killing pets for population control
Nathan Winograd: Open admissions shelters saving 90-97% of all pets
No Kill Nation: A No Kill community is one where: Healthy and treatable dogs and cats are saved; and, Healthy and treatable feral cats are saved.
How can a shelter achieve no-kill?
It depends who you ask:
Nathan Winograd/No Kill Nation: Following his “No Kill Equation,” which is actually simply a list of programs successful shelters do on their own, there is nothing proprietary about it.
Best Friends: No More Homeless Pets Partner network, focused on spay/neuter & increasing adoptions, transfers from at-risk shelters, grant funding
No-Kill is:
A Misnomer:
No-Kill is:
No-Kill is:
The term is misleading. The public doesn’t understand that shelters still euthanize pets deemed untreatable.
With few exceptions, purveyors of the movement encourage public animosity toward shelters that have not yet achieved no-kill.
Instead of encouraging collaboration and providing resources to help shelters achieve high save rates, no-kill vilifies shelters that haven’t, accusing their leaders of laziness, and sometimes, of wanting to kill pets.
They don’t provide usable resources, positive reinforcement and collaboration to help shelters improve save rates, rather they provide outdated powerpoints or PDFs brushing over how others have succeeded, with no clear information on how shelters can implement it themselves.
Introducing High Save Shelters
No-Kill has reached a point of public awareness where we have to acknowledge it; we are asked daily if we are no-kill.
There is a demand for better, more accurate terminology: there are a growing number of leading shelters achieving save rates that qualify them as no kill, but opting not to use “No-Kill” terminology for the aforementioned reasons
We have an opportunity to fill an opening in the market by leading this initiative
High Save Shelters

Shelters with High Save Rates that don’t use “No Kill” Language
Qualify as “No-Kill”
Animal Humane New Mexico – 90%
Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society – 90%
Seattle Humane Society – 96.5%
Oregon Humane Society – 98% (2011)
Connecticut Humane Society – 95%
Humane Society of Boulder Valley – 93%
East Bay SPCA – 92% (Oakland, CA)
Spokane Humane Society – 99%
Making Progress
San Diego Humane Society – 85%
Denver Dumb Friends League – 83%
SPCA of Texas – 88.6%
Minneapolis – 80%
Humane Society of Tampa Bay – 86%
Longmont Humane Society – 81% (2010)
And Many More!
Our plan:
Establish a national collaborative of leading shelters who have achieved “no-kill” statistics, but embrace and use “High Save” as opposed to “no-kill”
Launch a website, providing resources for shelters on how to successfully implement programs to increase their save rate
Focus on helping shelters nationwide create financially & logistically sustainable save rates
Highsave.org, highsaveshelters.org, savemorepets.org
Launch a national communications campaign to:
Focus on social media, editorial and website
Educate public about our movement
Provide clarity on differences between High Save and no-kill
Gain following of public supporters
Recruit other shelters to join our collective
Provide clear, concise terminology
Require all participating shelters to be absolutely transparent
What are the differences between High Save and No Kill?
We will:
be comprised of shelters leading the industry
use positive messaging
use accurate terminology
be transparent and realistic
provide resources and positive reinforcement to help shelters improve save rates in a sustainable way
provide well organized, easily navigable content that engages users
We won’t judge or vilify shelters
We won’t breed negativity and conflict
We need your help to:
Research feasibility of launching this new initiative
Assist in creation of messaging that communicates our position in a positive manner
Make recommendations for roll-out
Survey of Adopters from 5/12-2/13
Our Current Position Statement on No-Kill is outdated:
Animal Humane’s #1 goal is to find homes for 100% of all healthy pets we receive.
Albuquerque has a daunting pet overpopulation problem. All shelters and rescue groups are greatly burdened with unwanted animals. Here are some facts about shelters and rescue groups who characterize themselves as “NO-KILL”:

1)“No-Kill” shelters limit their intake of animals to only the highly adoptable. Animals that require major medical care, exhibit behavior problems or are deemed unadoptable are usually sent to “open admissions” shelters.
2)“Open Admissions” shelters, like Animal Humane must absorb the burden of those animals that “No-Kill” shelters turn away.
3)Every shelter finds itself in the unfortunate position of having to euthanize animals for health or behavioral issues.

The devoted staff and volunteers of Animal Humane are committed to avoiding needless euthanasia of adoptable animals by providing quality medical care, loving sheltering, and tireless adoption efforts in our community. We hope for and are working towards the day that all shelters and rescue groups within our city cooperate equally to share the burden of caring for and finding homes for unwanted pets.

We will be working to save the lives of more homeless pets
What are the similarities between High Save and No Kill?
Don't Call Us No-Kill
We are High-Save
