This is good news for all animals as Michigan is now officially a "no-kill state" for shelter animals. Now you might be wondering how Michigan was able to make the whole state a no-kill state. Well according to WILX, to be a "no-kill" state, 90% of animals are either returned to owners, transferred to other shelters and rescue organizations, or adopted.

Michigan was able to become a no-kill state because of the statistics from the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance (MPFA) which tracks from annual reports submitted by shelters all over the country. MPFA stats have recorded that approximately 120,000 dogs and cats were being euthanized in Michigan shelters every year up to a few years ago, where now the number is as low as 13,000.
