Manatee pet shelter determined to be a “no killing” county

Usually about 4200 ie. 60% of 7000 cats and dogs are euthanized  ever year in Manatee county.

Dogs and cats who are injured or badly suffering from some incurable disease are top the killing list, after them comes stray, abandoned or sized animals.

Still they have to destroy some healthy adoptable animals also, just to avoid kennel overcrowding.

Manatee is not the only county which have to coup up with this sort of situation, all over the the world situations are alike, though nobody ever think off euthanizing any pet.

Manatee set up coalition groups to convert themselves as a “no-kill” county, They are determined to try not to put down any adoptable animals.

This is a joint effort by the Manatee County Animal Services, the Humane Society, and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals at the Bishop Animal Shelter. The group is hoping to model a program on a successful effort in Richmond, Va.

The No-Kill Animal Association estimates that roughly 250 communities in the United States and Canada have achieved the goal of killing no healthy, adoptable animals.

Hopefully from now on shelters will gain the reputation as cheerful place rather than a death house.
