    How many animals enter our nation’s shelters? 
    How many animals are moving among shelters and rescues as transfers? 
    What can we learn from other communities where more, or fewer, lives are saved? 
    These – and so many other questions – can be answered if shelters and rescues agree that we can turn data into lives saved. In fact, what if there was a database of sheltered animal statistics?

But a new website is aiming to remedy the lack of data. Animal welfare workers talked about creating a database for years. Now, four years after the work began, "Shelter Animals Count: The National Database Project" is online.
