Change in focus of local city shelter
Went to a seminar on local city services today.
Part of the information was about how animal control and the local pound have changed their focus.
They have formed a partnership with the local Humane Society that allows the HS to come in periodically and evaluate animals that are unclaimed after the minimum waiting period. The HS can then take the animals, rehabnilitate, and place for adoption.
The pounds euthanasia rate has dropped from about 45% to less than 5% and is dropping. And, that has occured with an increase in the number of animals impounded.
I'd say that is a positive improvement in the use of my license fees and tax dollars!
