Large numbers of unwanted animals surrendered to county animal control facilities each year. Of the animals housed in animal control facilities in the CAC nine county region in 2008,
75% were euthanized at a cost of over $4,000,000 to the taxpayer.
No matter how many animal welfare participate to adopt animals out, the animals surrendered to animal control increase each year by about 13%. The consequence is an escalating euthanasia rate of these unwanted yet adoptable animals.
