Below you will find performance indicators that measure our work. Each graph compares the HSWC’s performance this calendar quarter-to-date to the performance of complete years in the past. Statistics will be updated quarterly. Data reflects January 1 though September 30, 2018. 

Total Intake


Total Feline Intake as a % of Total Intake


Stray vs. Owner Surrender Total Intake


Live Outcomes = Lives Saved
(Includes Adoptions, Transfer to Rescue, Return to Owner, Foster, Fospice and TNR)


HSWC Live Release Rates

The Live Release Rate (LRR) is calculated using the following formula:    

LLR = Live Outcomes ÷ Intake (minus animals over whom the shelter has no control over outcome, including wildlife, disposal requests and owner requested euthanasia)

(Includes Owner Requested)
