Established in 2012, Shelter Animals Count is a national database that tracks shelter statistics. Not only can you track the animals entering and leaving your organization and provide data for services provided to community-owned animals, you can also look at your community, state and nation as a whole.

Because Maddie's Fund believes that tracking numbers is the key to success of any animal welfare organization, we feel that participating in Shelter Animals Count is very important.

To be eligible for a grant from Maddie's Fund, your organization must be an active participant (entering data on a monthly basis) in Shelter Animals Count.
