  1. The NCDA&CS released the 2015 North Carolina animal shelter statistics (more than a month sooner than they used to!) You can download them as a PDF (http://www.ncagr.gov/vet/aws/Fix/documents/2015AnimalShelterReport3-17-16.pdf) or and Excel doc (http://www.ncagr.gov/vet/aws/Fix/documents/2015AnimalShelterReport3-17-16.xls). I’m working on a Google sheet that calculates percentages and whatnot, and then I will add 2015 to the multi-year comparison I’ve started (2011-2014 is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RrlwdtocTlqhg1lD3LHmJppMpQ4bfIsHVGCeiTYx7cY/pubhtml) but it may take some weeks because of life.

    SCOTX rules that impounding a dog and transferring it to a rescue doesn’t mean the owner no longer HS any claim to him/her: http://www.texastribune.org/2016/04/01/texas-supreme-court-rules-on-who-owns-dog/

    I find it very interesting that they mislabeled the breed of the dog upon impound, yet knew which breed rescue to contact.
