For the first time ever at the Southern Pines Animal Shelter not one healthy, adoptable animal was euthanized at the shelter in the month of November.
This is attributed to the reduction in the amount of animals brought to the shelter. They are predicting the amount of animals that have been dropped off at the shelter in 2012 will be the lowest in decades. As a result the amount of animals that have had to be euthanized has also shown a significant drop, going from about 7000 to about 2000 this year.
The Southern Pines Animal Shelter has made a major contribution in helping to reduce the unwanted pet population in the Pine Belt, thus reducing the number of animals being dropped off at the shelter by almost half.
Since opening in 2009 more than 18,000 spay or neuter surgeries have been performed at the clinic.
"This success is not just something to be celebrated by our board of directors, and by Southern Pines, but by every person who donates to us, everyone who adopts an animal, all the counties that support us financially, and all the businesses and people that support us financially." said Katherine Sammons, Southern Pines Assistant Manager. "This victory is for everyone."
Valerie Rachal, Research and Development Manager for Southern Pines, says the shelter is expecting the final intake number for 2012 will be around 5000.
"While we are proud of this decreasing intake, it's important for the community to understand that 5000 is still a huge number and on any given day the shelter is filled to capacity," said Rachal.
The reduction in intakes has also significantly improved the adoption chances of the animals that are brought to the shelter.
