ASM 2 Series

ASM 2 is the previous generation of Animal Shelter Manager. It's Java based and designed to run on your desktop. It has installers for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X 10.4+, various Linux distributions and a web bundle containing an applet for hosting providers that allow external access to MySQL databases.

ASM 2 has been frozen in maintenance mode since April, 2012. No new features will be added to it and it has been superceded by ASM 3, which has many new improvements and is much friendlier to use.

The latest version is 2.8.16, released on 5th October, 2019. View latest changes.
