Welcome to our Lifeline and Shelter Animal Foster e-Registry tool


In fiscal year 2014 Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) had a live release rate of 68%. We can do better!

Every year, thousands of dogs and cats are killed at our county shelters.

Over 6,000 animals died at Pima County Animal Care Center in 2013.  This number could potentially be cut in half if rescues and foster homes were able to help.

Rescue groups are formed within our community to save these animals off “death-row” and to bring them into safety. To be able to do this effectively, rescues depend on “foster homes” during the transition from shelter animal to rescue animal to family animal.

The SAFeR Lifeline represents a critical link to enabling rescues to increase their number of animals that are saved, by connecting volunteers from the community as temporary “safe-houses” for these animals.

About SAFeR Lifeline

SAFeR LifeLine is a not for profit (501c3) corporation committed to providing an online platform for connecting individuals with groups dedicated to saving the lives of animals in Pima County.

We believe that that the ability to quickly and easily identify temporary homes will significantly reduce the number of innocent lives caught up in the killing cycle of today’s government-run animal control centers. This along with community awareness and a strict implementation of the No Kill Equation will help to bring about the model that in over 200 communities has been able to save over 90% of the animals that end up at the county shelters.


We'd love to answer any questions you might have about our SAFeR registry, and the No Kill Equation.
