Measure Description

Pets Rescued/Returned measures the percentage of adoptable pets (cats and dogs) that enter and leave the Animal Care and Control system. The total that leave the system include pets returned home by the Animal Care and Control Facility, pets returned home directly by an Animal Control Officer, pets provided to the Edmonton Humane Society for adoption, or pets provided to other 3rd party rescue groups for adoption. Adoptable is defined as pets that are healthy and have no socialization issues that would make them a danger to owners. Animal Control Centre's target is 95%.
