Effective July 2020, Memphis Animal Services uses the revised* Best Friends/No More Homeless Pets method of reporting data and calculating save rate. The formula used to calculate it is below:

Total intake = X
Total intake minus euthanasia, minus died/lost in shelter = Y

Divide Y/X= save rate

From December 2016 to July 2020, Memphis Animal Services used the previous* Best Friends/No More Homeless Pets method of reporting data and calculating save rate. The formula used to calculate it is below:

Total intake minus owner requested euthanasias = X
Total intake minus owner requested euthanasias minus euthanasia, minus died/lost in
shelter = Y

Divide Y/X= save rate

*In 2020, Best Friends Animal Society revised their formula to include owner-requested euthanasia numbers in an agency’s save rate, whereas they previously had not. For a more in-depth explanation from Best Friends, click here.
