Best Friends Executive Director Anna Gonce said Tuesday that a 90 percent save rate would meet that goal - and the current percentage of dogs and cats that leave the West Valley City-Taylorsville shelter alive is 82 percent, up from about 58 percent in 2011.

Gonce told West Valley City Council members at a study meeting that the goal of the shelter and her group had been to achieve an 80 percent save rate by June 2014. The numbers she used compared January to September 2012 to the same period in 2011.
The effort has been fueled by volunteers and the "100 percent support" of shelter workers, Gonce said.
Organizations have different definitions of the term: Gonce said shelters typically have to euthanize about 10 percent of animals because they are extremely aggressive, sick or badly injured.
Best Friends has spent $30,745 so far, Gonce said.
