sad but true. i don't live there, but my local shelter says cats stay 3 days, dogs, 6, and then they're put down.

This is for NC but you can find for all states in US.

Find out how many animals were euthanized in your NC county last year http://ncagr.gov/vet/aws/fix/documents/2011ShelterReportUpdated6-5-12color.pdf

They only adopted out 12 dogs and NO other animals. What I don't understand is how can they have ALMOST $100,000 in operating costs FOR THE year 2011 - take in 729 DOGS / 470 CATS and kill 717 DOGS / 470 CATS.
Don't you think that someone could save that many animals for $100,000?? I sure do. There are shelters who take in many more animals that do much better.
