Gibson County Animal Services says it has reduced the euthanasia rate for animals that are put down because they’ve run out of time or space at the shelter.
According to our media partner, The Princeton Daily Clarion, the shelter had to put down 24 animals in 2011 due to time and space limits. Last year, just two animals were euthanized because of space issuess.
Sickness and aggression remain the primary problem for animals that are put down. Last year, more than 200 were killed because of illness or injury. About 30 percent were euthanized because they were aggressive or feral.
