Improving Statistics On Animal Control
I commend the Moore County Citizens Pet Responsibility Committee for their efforts and the fantastic results they are getting on their Spay and Neuter clinic held monthly in Robbins.
It is programs like this one that will stop the killing of our wonderful companion animals here in Moore County.
I would also like to point out another reason why our animal control statistics look better than those of most communities. (Some animal control shelters in North Carolina have a 99 percent euthanasia rate, ours is 63 percent.)
The Haven deserves credit, too. Its name and good efforts are frequently overlooked. Of the 1,752 animals that were either adopted, returned to their owners or remained in animal control possession for 2006, 863 were adopted by The Haven.
Most were puppies, kittens and small dogs. Had those animals not been adopted, they would have been euthanized, and our rate would have risen to over 81 percent, a very sizable jump.
Oh, and The Haven placed over 2,400 animals for adoption in 2006 alone.
I think all of the animal rescue/shelter groups are doing a great job. But being an animal lover, I thank God we have the The Haven doing so much for Moore County.
I wonder how much money The Haven has saved Moore taxpayers over the 10 years it has been operating?
