Animal Center launches dashboard

Tuesday, November 9, 2021 by Tai Moses

With the aim of improving transparency, a new dashboard from Austin Animal Center will make it possible for the public to view “performance and measurement data, including the number of animals impounded and adopted” at the facility. The dashboard, which will be rolled out in phases, currently displays intakes by animal; the numbers of animals adopted, returned to owner, euthanized, and in foster care; and statistics on vaccinations and spay and neuter surgeries, among other data. Animal Services Director Don Bland said the city and the Animal Services Office are “dedicated to ensuring that information on our programs and services is delivered to the public in a way that makes it easier for them to see what is occurring in our department. Transparency is a top priority for us and for the community, and this will help ensure that.”
