2023 Florida Shelter-Level Data

Intake/Outcome Data Self-Reported by Shelters

Data for the Florida Shelter Animal Census is self-reported by individual animal shelters and then compiled for statewide statistical summaries by the Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida.

The Florida Shelter Animal Census uses the standardized data definitions established for Shelter Animals Count.

Shelters that have data listed as UNAVAILABLE were unable to submit data due to software/data losses or because the agency wasn’t functioning or recording data.

Shelters that have data listed as MISSING are working on their data submissions currently.

Shelters that have data listed as N/A do not record those specific data points due to policy or intake restrictions (cat only facilities, etc.).

See an error or omission or a shelter that is not on the list? Let us know at keegan.spera@ufl.edu.
