What is your Asilomar Report and what does it mean?

In August of 2004, a group of animal welfare industry leaders from across the nation convened at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, California, for the purpose of building bridges across varying philosophies, developing relationships and creating goals focused on significantly reducing the euthanasia of healthy and treatable companion animals in the United States.

As part of the accords, a uniform reporting standard was created to foster transparency and establish a means of comparing animal shelters.

Willamette Humane Society publishes its annual Asilomar Live Release Rate Report in the Annual Report section of the website.
