Treats on the Internets

Nice piece on saving the lives of shelter dogs with foster homes in NC and VA

In Shelby Co, KY they transport animals to other states for adoption – but it’s not a secret!

Humane officers in Washington Co, PA have stopped responding to abuse calls because they say they are over capacity at the shelter.

KC Dog Blog:  All options don’t include “euthanasia”

TN shelter to close but they will be adopting out, at reduced adoption fees, their pets first

Due to budget cuts, the SPCA in New Orleans won’t be responding to calls after hours anymore.  Instead, the police department will field calls, responding only to “dangerous situations”.

Pet Connection:  We must kill the puppies to save them

I don’t often see the word “killed” in mainstream media articles about shelter pet killing – it’s usually – incorrectly – called “euthanasia”.  I was interested to see it used here:

The Oconee County animal shelter takes in from 5,000 to 5,500 animals a year, [Capt. Mike Crenshaw of the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office] said, with up to 3,600 having to be killed.

Now if we could just do something about the “having to be” verbiage.  Since they do not have to be killed.

Sometimes they come back:  Insert Pet Sematary joke here.
