Do a google search for " ADOPT-A-PET.COM "
You can look state by state. the ones that are kill shelters will say animal control. it also list every rescue org. I am trying to do something similar to what you are doing. i want to give the kill shelters a list of all the rescue groups within a 200 mile radius of their location.
I live in texas . there are a lot of rescue groups and alot of high kill shelters. the ones i've heard about is san antonio, denton, ft worth, and brownwood.
please let me know what you think of the adopt a pet site. you can usually click on the kill shelters web site and see what dogs are
available. it also list their phone number and address.
I foster for a rescue group. we pull dogs from san antonio alot. cheer

I was wondering if you could share your definition of a high-kill shelter. Is it based on how many animals they euthanize in a certain period of time, or what percentage they euthanize, or some policy that they have in place...? I'd like to help in the search, I'm just not sure what to look for.

Dallas SPCA is definitely a HIGH-KILL shelter that hides the fact from the public. I surrendered a wonderful little stray that I had loved & nurtured for almost 3 months, because I have 6 other animals & believed the lies that " The SPCA of Texas is dedicated to providing every animal exceptional care and a loving home" . They killed him probably within 24 hrs & refuse to tell me why. The ONLY reason they don't kill a surrendered animal is because of space. They DO KILL for any other reason they see fit. I am devastated & will never forgive myself

Please, please tell anyone who thinks that those who make the policies at the DALLAS SPCA care-they DO NOT. I hope this story might save an innocent animal from poor little trusting Frisbee's fate.

i know this thread is old but i just wanted to clarify that CORTLAND COUNTY SPCA is a NO KILL SHELTER. The person on the first page is WRONG. there may be other 'extremely high kill' shelters, but this place is not it!

I rescued my little guy from the Carrolton, TX shelter. I think they only get a few days there... if that. He came in with one other dog. I was going to go back to get here a few days later and keep her until I found another home, but they euthanized her before I got back frown

I volunteer at the Merced County Animal Shelter in California.

Through hard work and coordination, we have dropped our euthanization rate from 80% to 47%. But that's still high in my opinion.

The euthanizations are by injection. They do not gas.

IF you are a 501(c)3 rescue, they don't charge to pull the dogs, and will even vaccinate and microchip the dogs and cats for you!happy dance
