Liberal Animal Shelter achieves No-Kill status in 2022

Animal Shelter Logo

On Wednesday, October 18th, 2023, the Liberal Animal Shelter was recognized by Best Friends Animal Society for achieving a 90% save rate in 2022. This means the shelter saved more than 90% of the dogs and cats that entered the shelter last year.

Achieving this status is a direct result of the hard work the Animal Control staff does on a daily basis helping the community of Liberal. This couldn’t have been possible without the continued support of the Liberal Animal Shelter by the citizens of Liberal.

*A 90 percent save rate is the nationally recognized benchmark to be considered “no-kill,” factoring that approximately 10 percent of pets who enter shelters have medical or behavioral circumstances that warrant humane euthanasia rather than killing for lack of space.
