I know a few of the shelters in your area, if you want to PM me the name of the HS I might know if it's kill or no-kill.

And, of course, you could check their website. They would probably list there if they are no-kill, or if not, they'd probably list their euthanasia rate.

The local humane society here is no-kill for dogs, but does euthanize cats.

Unfortunately cat overpopulation is so rampant that IMO you'll be hard pressed to find many shelters that don't euthanize them. Partly this is due to people not spaying cats as much as dogs (it's as if they just can't be bothered! ) and partly due to the fertility of cats . . . Unlike dogs they don't come into heat every six months, but potentially every few WEEKS.

That, and the fact that cats adapt to a feral life very quickly, as opposed to dogs who don't form enormous colonies in just a couple of years.

Our humane society is the highest kill shelter in the area.

Our local shelter is a definate kill shelter. It is also, unfortunatly, very filthy and disgusting. They don't clean there, and its full of distemper, parvo, you name it. They are overrun in the inside runs and cages and a bunch live together in a fenced dirt lot outside. Dogs always seem to be escaping also. I can't blame them. My mom calls it the "inhumane society". She told me on the phone when she and dad stopped and got two terriers off the side of the road close to the "inhumane society". She said they are probably "escapees"!
