Delaware Becomes The First "No-Kill" State In The U.S. For Animal Shelters

This is amazing! Delaware is making history as the first and only no-kill animal shelter state in the country! According to Best Friends Animal Society, a non-profit animal welfare organization. for a state to be recognized as "no-kill," it must achieve a 90% save rate for all the animals that enter -- and Delaware did that. 

Brandywine Valley SPCA, which has three locations in Delaware and cares for more than 14,000 animals each year, have multiple programs implemented on how they achieved this no-kill status!
