What is Asilomar Data?

The matrix contains the data points an organization should collect, including summary counts by species, age breaks, intake type and outcome type. This data helps us fill in the gaps and figure out how we can help animals more effectively.

Despite the hard work of shelters and rescues everywhere, it is estimated that millions of dogs and cats enter America’s shelters each year, and more than half of them will never leave. While great progress has been made, accurate and comprehensive nation-wide data does not exist. It’s precisely this data that will guide good decision-making, and help us save thousands of sheltered animals’ lives. The numbers really do count.
