shelter boss's comprehensive animal control programs include:

gis integration & address history

Shelter Boss makes it easy to sync addresses with your gis system (with ad hoc refreshes) and stores complete history for every address, including current and prior residents and legal actions. Mapping and directions are provided for each location. Optional address validation cuts down on errors and speeds up data-entry.

inventory and controlled substances

Shelter Boss's inventory system includes orders and receiving (at one or multiple locations) for products, licenses/chips, drugs/medications and traps with auto-numbering (serial, part, unit, lot, control), invoicing, shrinkage, sales, and restock reporting. All drug usage, including controlled substances, is deducted from on-hand quantities and logged with complete, detailed information.

streamlined intake & outcome

Efficiently process impounds, DOAs, surrenders, on-site and home quarantines, and multiple-animal intakes using Shelter Boss's quick-fill templates, custom forms and cage cards, and signature documents, plus automated receipt creation and auto-calculated availability dates and status changes. Set approvals for adoptions or euthanasia and process outcomes with automatic form-printing and receipt creation.

kennel & location management

Multiple facilities with on-site and off-site locations mean you always know where your animals are (and were). Move or transfer animals inside or outside of your organization, set temporary adoption locations (such as a Petco store), and view complete occupancy history for any location anytime. Unlimited custom kennel cards, too, using your choice of data, text, colors, and logo.

documents and forms, your way

Design your own case statements, enforcements/warnings, correspondence, cage cards, behavioral evaluations and data-collection forms using your choice of data types, controls, colors, and images. Collect e-signatures and automatically e-mail new form submissions to anyone.
