This comes via the Redlands Daily Facts, a story of how the ASPCA is using Esri technology to help rescue animals
From the article…
The ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) received a $230,000 grant from PetSmart Charities, Inc. in October.
According to a press release from ASPCA, the funds will allow the organization to hire a full-time GIS expert dedicated to the collection and analysis of community data in a more strategic effort to save animals’ lives.
This Esri technology is expected to more effectively direct targeted spay and neuter programs toward animal populations that are most at risk of entering shelters and track their progress over time, the ASPCA stated.
"Through our work with our partner communities, we have witnessed firsthand how focusing on key data can help improve shelters’ strategic planning, helping them work even smarter than before," said Emily Weiss, vice president of shelter research and development for the ASPCA in a press release.
