**A shelter’s “Live Release Rate” is the number of live outcomes divided by the number of total outcomes. At RBARI, No animal is euthanized to make space for another.  RBARI is committed to all of our dogs and cats until a home is found.  Euthanasia is only considered for medical necessity, for instance if a dog or cat is suffering with a medical condition that cannot be fixed and their quality of life is diminished.
