    Hello all,

    I found a statistic once stating that an open-admission shelter can expect to intake 3% of the human population.  I have been unsuccessful in relocating this number.  Does anyone know the nation-wide number for this or a location that may have this information?

    Thank you!

    I've never seen that but if you can't find anything, you could check it using Census population data and see how it compares to the intake numbers of the shelter/s you're interested in.
