Pyramid Program

Getting to Zero with Proven Practices.

Target Zero teaches Fellow Cities the Pyramid Program, a proven systematic building of programs and policies to reduce animal intake and increase the live release rate, ultimately getting to zero kill (90+% shelter save rate). It is designed to highlight impact priorities—starting from the bottom and working towards the top—however Target Zero mentors levels simultaneously and as needed within each city.

We suggest exploring each layer of the pyramid, starting from the bottom with Shelter and Public Policy and continuing upward from there.
