Three THOUSAND animals a year come through the Norton Animal Shelter. 3000. Only 1000 are adopted by the public or taken in by rescues. This has been the yearly average for many years now (public report available from the state vet's office).
That leaves an average of 2000 per year with no homes to go to. For the no-kill shelter proponents, what do you propose we do with the 2000 remaining animals? Will you build a facility that can hold those animals and pay for their veterinary care and daily needs? The local rescues can't get enough help in caring for one or two animals, let alone 2000. The County wont hire for that.
And the next year comes another 2000 unwanted pets. That makes 4000 animals to care for. Then year three there are 6000 animals to care for. Or would you rather, 6000, 8000, 10,000 stray animals roam the county unchecked? unhealthy, starving, freezing...
Solve this problem. Spay and neuter your animals. DO NOT support backyard breeders (oh my dog is so cute and has papers I'm going to let it have puppies). Don't support puppymills (that's where that doggie in the window comes from).
For every animal that dies at the shelter, there's a human responsible for it. I'm not talking the employees, I'm talking the irresponsible people out there that think their litters of puppies and kittens aren't contributing. They think their unneuterd unspayed animals aren't part of the problem.
If animals can't have unwanted litters, unwanted dogs won't wind up at the shelter!

That's the whole reason the shelter responded to this thread by having a local newspaper do such an "animal friendly" article about their facility. Think about it people, they're trying to cover up their wrong doings. From what I hear they don't even have a full time supervisor on site. I guarantee you the post by "three thousand" was from an employee there or a county suck trying to ease the pressure on this joke of a shelter.
