Metrics and Statistics

Homeward Bound Schnauzer Rescue (HBSR) received our 501(c)(3) in June 2016. HBSR firmly believes that transparency is critical to the success of any organization.  We are proud of the work we have done saving schnauzers and placing them in loving, forever homes.  Therefore, we are committed to ensuring our data are available for public review on, at least, an annual basis.

We are very proud of our Life Saving Percentage, which is 96.4%.

This was calculated by dividing our Live Outcome by the Total Outcomes. This calculation was chosen as it includes 100% of the Total Outcomes.
