What Is A 'No-Kill' Animal Shelter?

Stray and unwanted pets often wind up at animal shelters but not all of them are 'no-kill' facilities. Most rescue and animal rights organizations define no-kill in different ways. Usually it means that healthy and treatable animals are saved with euthanasia reserved for only those animals who are severely unhealthy and who can't be rehabilitated. This is where it becomes a bit of a gray area since it's up to the shelter to determine which animals are healthy and which can be rehabilitated. So, while 'no-kill' doesn't necessarily mean that no animals are euthanized, in most cases the shelters try their best.
