MADDIE'S FUND AND OUR STATISTICS

Into its 28th year, PLL continues to help the community by not turning away lost or abandoned animals  from the county of Sonoma Valley. 

We are proud to say that no adoptable (physically and temperamentally sound) animal was euthanized in the years 2006 to 2008, of which the following statistics cover.

The collection & publication of this data is sponsored by Maddie's Fund www.maddiesfund.org

The following definitions were created by the Asilimar Accords for continuity between organizations.

HEALTHY: The term healthy means and includes all dogs and cats eight weeks of age or older that, at or subsequent to the time the animal is taken into possession, have manifested no sign of a behavioral or temperamental characteristic that could pose a health or safety risk or other wise make the animal unsuitable for placement as a pet, and have manifested no sign of disease, injury, or congenital or hereditary condition that adversely affects the health of the animal or that is likely to adversely affect the animal's health in the future.

TREATABLE: The term treatable means and includes all dogs and cats who are rehabilitatable and all dogs and cats who are manageable.
