2012 Save Rate Report and Awards
Michigan Pet Fund Alliance used the 2012 annual shelter reports that each licensed shelter is required to submit to the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and performed calculations to determine each shelter’s performance in saving lives.
In 2012 there were various challenges collecting shelter statistics. The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has been working to update and collect missing information. As this information is compiled we are correcting and updating the save rate report. The latest corrected save rate report can be found here.
