Shelter Award Winners Announced

Award Winner
Each year, Michigan Pet Fund Alliance uses a variety of available data sources to determine if progress is being made toward becoming a no kill state. 
The most important data set available is from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD):  the annual shelter reports submitted by licensed shelters.
Based on those reports, MPFA creates a Save Rate report , ranks shelters by performance, and recognizes top shelters throughout the state. 

The Award Winners for Shelter Save Rates are finalized for reporting year 2014.
