A point-in-time snapshot of the Puppycide Database, available in various file formats.
The Puppycide Database Project (or "PuppycideDB", for short) was founded in 2014 in an attempt to determine how many domestic pets were killed by law enforcement in the United States. For years, a team of volunteers used public records, news stories and interviews to compile evidence of nearly 3,000 killings of pets by police. 3,000 is a large number, but it represents a small fraction of the pets that are killed by law enforcement in the US. The research project is no longer active, but this website remains available to document our findings.
