At PAWS, we pride ourselves on transparency when reporting our shelter statistics. We are recognized as one of the top county shelters in Kentucky, caring for thousands of stray and abandoned animals on a yearly basis. PAWS consistently maintains a Live Release rate over 90%, which is among the highest in the country for open-admission shelters. We offer our statistics as a reflection of the hard work our dedicated staff puts in at the shelter everyday.
A note about these numbers. PAWS calculates our live release rate utilizing the Asilomar Accord “Lite” Live Release Rate, which is a data matrix specifically designed for shelters and rescues to track and report critical data. For more information regarding the calculations, click here.
