  1. Does not include wildlife; we partner with several wildlife rehabilitation organizations to care for wild animals brought to us.
  2. Does not include owner-requested euthanasia.
  3. The number of intakes will not necessarily equal the number of outcomes over the course of a reporting period. The difference represents a net increase or decrease in the number of animals in our care at the beginning of the period and at the end.

Euthanasia
The ARL looks at every animal as an individual and not a number and determines a treatment or rehabilitation plan. We only euthanize animals that are dangerous or suffering, and only after we have exhausted all other humane and responsible options. We do not euthanize for space and there are no time limits on the animals in our care.
