St. Francis Animal Rescue of Venice is committed to transparency in all aspects of our organization. We track shelter statistics and report data monthly to Shelter Animals Count. Data is made publicly available so that all who support St. Francis Animal Rescue can see the extent of our lifesaving impact.
In 2021, St. Francis Animal Rescue had a save rate of 91% [170 cats (187 Total Live Intakes - 17 euthanasia) divided by 187 Total Live Intakes]. St. Francis Animal Rescue is a no-kill shelter which means that no cat is ever euthanized to make space for another. Infrequently, St. Francis Animal Rescue must make the difficult decision to euthanize cats that are too ill to be treated and no longer have any remaining quality of life. We are committed to lowering euthanasia rates in our county, and we work with Sarasota County Animal Services to transfer at-risk cats to our facility.
St. Francis Animal Rescue thanks all those who have adopted from us. We ended the year 2021 with 83 adult cats and 70 kittens finding their fur-ever homes.
