The OpenShelter project seeks to provide no-kill animal shelters with a free software package that provides data and organization managment functions, including adoption, vet, foster, shelter, donor, and other records.

The Status

We are currently designing the database schema for the data-tier.

We are also currently doing some proof of concept work against the no-kill directory and looking at implimenting the data-tier and possibly the app-tier as well in C++ rather then Perl.

If you are associated with a no-kill program and would like to help beta test the system, please get in touch with us for info.
