**A shelter’s “Live Release Rate” is the number of live outcomes divided by the number of total outcomes. SoHumane gives every animal in our care the time and support they need to find a loving home. However, because we take in some very vulnerable and sick cats and kittens—including newborn orphaned kittens—some of the cats in our care do pass away or are humanely euthanized to end suffering due to incurable disease.
