Orange County Dog Euthanasia Rates Drop From 50% to 33% in 5 years.

There is still hope for sheltered dogs and cats in Orange County.  Over the last 5 years, the death rates in Orange County shelters has dropped 17%, and is still trending to drop further.  One of the biggest contributors to its decline is a larger percentage of the pet population being spayed or neutered.  However, even with the good news, we can be doing better.  For the last 5 years, LA has enforced a law requiring all pet parents to spay or neuter their pets.  This has resulted in a dramatic decrease in kill rates at the shelters throughout LA.  In fact, in 2014, there were a little over 13,500 less dogs and cats killed in LA shelters than in 2010.  Orange County has yet to pass legislation to require you, if you aren’t a responsible breeder, to have your dog spayed or neutered.  It has already gone to a vote once but didn’t pass.  I’m hoping with the evidence of it’s ability to not only reduces the city’s spendings, but more importantly, to save dog’s lives, it will pass when it goes up for a vote again, hopefully that day comes soon.   To read the full article, which goes into further detail, click below.
