Why It Works

Getting to Zero with Proven Practices.

Target Zero teaches Fellow Communities the Pyramid Program, a proven set of best practices aimed at reducing animal intake and increasing the live release rate in order to get to zero (a 90+% shelter save rate). It is designed to highlight impact priorities—starting from the bottom and working towards the top—however, TZ mentors levels simultaneously and as needed within each city. We suggest exploring each layer of the pyramid, starting from the bottom with Shelter and Public Policy and continuing upward from there.
