Los Angeles becomes the largest US city with a 'no-kill' animal shelter, group says

LA's save rate is now up to 90.4%, which is over the 90% rate needed to claim no-kill status, according to Best Friends. The group factors in that approximately 10% of pets who enter shelters have medical or behavioral circumstances that warrant humane euthanasia rather than being killed for lack of space.
"When Best Friends Animal Society first launched its No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) initiative in 2012, only 56% of dogs and cats were making it out of Los Angeles city shelters alive," the organization said in a statement.
The group credits Los Angeles Animal Services, a coalition of animal welfare organizations, for the achievement.
"It's difficult to overstate the enormity of this moment and its place in the history of the no-kill movement," Julie Castle, chief executive officer of Best Friends Animal Society, said in a statement. "NKLA has demonstrated what's possible when an entire community works together and if Los Angeles can do it, any city can."
The organization said the achievements and successes of Los Angeles serve as a model for other cities and states. Currently, the United States has a collective 79% save rate, Best Friends says.
"Collaboration is key to saving lives and this coalition has certainly proved that to be true," said Brenda Barnette, general manager of LA Animal Services.
Currently Delaware is the only no-kill state, but the organization says it hopes to make Utah the second.

Los Angeles has become no-kill for the first time thanks to the efforts of the city, L.A. Animal Services, a coalition of animal welfare organizations, compassionate leaders and a dedicated community.  

When Best Friends Animal Society first launched the NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles) initiative in 2012, only 56 percent of dogs and cats were making it out of Los Angeles city shelters alive. In 2020, the city sustained a save rate of 90.49 percent.   

“It’s difficult to overstate the enormity of this moment and its place in the history of the no-kill movement. NKLA has demonstrated what’s possible when an entire community works together,” said Julie Castle, chief executive officer for Best Friends Animal Society. “By expanding this collaborative model nationwide, Best Friends’ goal to make every community in the U.S. no-kill by 2025 becomes even more of a reality.”   

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

COVID-19 brought a wave of community involvement to keep pets in homes. LA Animal Services, Best Friends, and more than 150 NKLA coalition partners worked together to ensure individuals and families were able to foster and adopt pets despite restrictions due to the pandemic and temporary closure of two city animal shelters.  

The NKLA coalition steering committee members include Angel City Pit Bulls, FixNation, Heaven on Earth Society for Animals, Kitten Rescue, Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats, Michelson Found Animals Foundation, Paws for Life K9 Rescue, The Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles (SNPLA), and Stray Cat Alliance.  

“Collaboration is key to saving lives and this coalition has certainly proved that to be true,” said Brenda Barnette, general manager of LA Animal Services.  

Best Friends and L.A. Animal Services have been a part of NBC4's Clear the Sheltersadoption campaign since 2015 which partners with animal shelters throughout Southern California to raise awareness about pet adoptions and has helped shelters find forever homes for tens of thousands of animals.

No Kill in Motion - Is Los Angeles a No Kill City?

Defining no-kill for the City of Los Angeles

A no-kill shelter is a shelter that saves healthy, treatable and rehabilitatable animals. As a benchmark, at least 90% of the dogs and cats entering the shelter are expected to be a released alive to the owner (if lost), a new home or a rescue partner.

In 2003, then Mayor James Hahn set a goal for Los Angeles to become no-kill by 2008. Although 2008 did not find Los Angeles a no-kill City, the City continued efforts to achieve that goal.

Since 2011, Los Angeles City animal shelters have been making great strides toward achieving no-kill. A live save rate of 90 percent of every dog and cat entering the city shelter system is the nationally recognized benchmark for no-kill status.

Each community must decide how they are going to calculate their no-kill statistics.  Some use a system called the Asilomar Accords and work out certain definitions that are appropriate to that community.  In Los Angeles, we take a simple and completely transparent approach based on total noses in and total noses out.

The Department of LA Animal Services believes that every healthy or treatable animal should be saved. We also understand that approximately 10 percent of the dogs and cats entering the City shelter system will have medical conditions causing irreparable suffering or are dangerous dogs and cannot be safely released into the community. In both cases, those animals must be humanely euthanized.

How are we getting there?

Strategies to achieving no-kill

  • Increase pet adoptions
  • Return lost pets to owners
  • Collaborate with private animal groups & the community
  • Provide free & discounted spay/neuter
  • Increase volunteer and foster care programs
  • Provide services for low income community members who want a companion animal.

Are we there yet?

NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles)

NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles) is an initiative led by Best Friends Animal Society, bringing together passionate individuals, city shelters and an entire coalition of animal welfare organizations to end the killing of pets in L.A. city shelters.


Visit our NKLA Pet Adoption Center to meet over 100 dogs & cats
from featured NKLA Coalition partners.

Adopt a pet to help Save Them All!


In 2015, over 6,000 animals were killed in Los Angeles city shelters simply because they didn't have safe places to call home. But together, we can bring that number to zero. 

Our plan is straightforward: Provide spay/neuter services where they are needed most so that fewer animals go into shelters and increase adoptions so that more animals are placed into new homes. In 2018, the NKLA Coalition helped find homes for about 24,000 dogs and cats, and Best Friends provided support for about 7,500 spay/neuter surgeries for L.A. pets.

In addition, Best Friends runs the NKLA Pet Adoption Center in the heart of West Los Angeles. The adoption center, which opened in August 2013, features adoptable cats and dogs from featured NKLA Coalition partners. 

The NKLA website is the information and action hub of the coalition and will provide you with details about how you can get involved. 

The NKLA initiative is poised to serve as a model for how the entire nation can become no-kill, with no adoptable pet ever having to die in a shelter again simply because they do not have a home. Since NKLA launched, the City of Los Angeles’ total save rate increased from 57.7% in 2011 to 89.7% in 2018. Together we can Save Them All®.

Join us to help turn L.A. into NKLA. For more information, visit NKLA.org.
