NKLA stand for No-Kill Los Angeles and is a coalition of rescue groups, including L.A. County and City of Los Angeles Animal Services, coming together with a goal that no animal is euthanized in an L.A. shelter by 2016.

    In 2012, the coalition's first year of existence, L.A. shelter deaths decreased 12 months in a row, culminating in 4,200 fewer animals killed than in the year prior. Also in 2012, the NKLA Coalition facilitated 23,421 adoptions and 4,458 spay/neuter surgeries were performed.
