We're Committed to Measuring Results.
Our map highlights where Target Zero has helped communities get to ‘zero’ and where we’re currently working. We define zero as 90% or more of cats and dogs getting out of shelters safely. The remaining 10% or less are accounted for by animals which, regardless of medical treatment, will die from illness and/or large dogs with non-rehabilitative aggression issues.
Target Zero mentors its Fellows to help them get to zero. Below are the communities we are currently working in, along with their progress reports.
Fellows that hit a 90+% shelter save rate officially become Target Zero Alumni and go on to help "pay it forward" to other communities.
The Partner Community Initiative was created for communities that either a) don’t yet qualify to become a Fellow but have the strong potential to become one.
