Animal rescue and shelter donation.

Update posted by Amit Dewayasin On Sep 03, 2019

Animal shelters care for animals needing protection, attempt to find homes for homeless animals, and reunite lost pets with their owners. When necessary, animal shelters give homeless or unadoptable animals a humane death. Today’s shelters range from single rooms with multiple cages to state-of-the-art facilities with amenities that may rival some hotels. The “luxury” features, like ambient music and waterfalls, serve to reduce the animals’ stress and to make the shelter more inviting, which increases the chances that the animals at the shelter will find a new home.

Animal shelters can be structured in three ways. First, as municipal animal control agencies, run by city or county governments; second, as non-profit agencies overseen by a board of directors; or third, as private, non-profit agencies with a government contract to provide animal control services.

Municipal animal control agencies are typically open-access, which means they receive any animal that is brought to their door by the public or seized by animal control agents on patrol. Municipal agencies, because of their open-access status, find it necessary to euthanize animals in their care to make room for incoming animals.
