PETS LIFELINE'S APPROACH TO ANIMAL WELFARE

Our mission is to protect and improve the lives of cats and dogs in need in Sonoma Valley through sheltering, adoption, humane education, and community programs.

KILL VS. NO-KILL

According to the Asilomar Accords (2004), Pets Lifeline can be considered a no-kill shelter with a 99.1% live release rate, but in reality is best described as a “limited admissions shelter”.

WHAT ARE THE ASILOMAR ACCORDS?

In 2004, industry leaders representing animal organizations gathered to find common ground in an otherwise divided animal welfare field in Pacific Grove, CA. The result was the Asilomar Accords, a first in the industry: common definitions and a standard way of reporting shelter statistics.
