SAS adopted 11,620 animals in 2015, with a 98% save rate. Our adoption rate is consistently 3-4 times above the national average and is one of the highest in the nation. The number of pets adopted in 2015 was the largest since the new SAS shelter building opened in 2000. Pets at SAS pets remain available for adoption as long as necessary (sometimes six months or more), and are never euthanized for space reasons.The SAS save rate of 98% is even more impressive because it includes 6,383 animals transferred to SAS from 84 animal welfare agencies (such as humane societies and animal control agencies). These animals were given a “second chance” at finding a home through SAS when time and resources had run out at their original shelters.
