Statistics and Reports
Our community cares a great deal about animals, and many people are interested in better understanding the more than 3,000 animals who come through the doors of Sonoma County Animal Services each year.
We care for the neediest animals in our community: those who are injured, abused, neglected, surrendered by their owners for a variety of reasons, abandoned, and lost. The data posted at SoCoData provides real-time updates on animals coming into and leaving our shelter. If you need help navigating and finding the intake and outcome information at this site, please call our office for a brief tutorial.
If you are looking for information beyond what is available at SoCoData, contact us to submit a public records request.
Live Release Rates July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019
The Live Release Rate is the percentage of animals leaving the shelter alive. Live Release Rates are calculated using the formula: Total Live Outcomes = (Adoptions + Transfers + RTO)/(Total Outcomes).
Return to Owner (RTO) rates are calculated using the formula: Outcome RTO/(Confiscated + Stray + Transfer + Quarantine).
Out of 1,615 dogs that came to our shelter, 90% were adopted, returned to owner or transferred.
Out of 1,302 cats that came to our shelter, 82% were adopted, returned to owner or transferred.
Intake and Outcome Summary July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019
