San Antonio (Texas) Animal Control Services euthanizes 75 to 125 animals per day right now & a total of 40,000 to 50,000 annually. Those are numbers I can barely fathom. http://epay.sanantonio.gov/animalcare/Gallery.aspx?D=ADOPTABLE&S=DOG -- to see what I've written about this just tonight visit http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=1605 09374&blogID=258497499&MyToken=c52dd659-8e91-4da3-afb1-41fd09579bdf: ((

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this one or not, but there has been a lot of posts on here about animals being put to sleep at :

"The Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care"/formally known as The "Bureau of Animal Regulation and Control" or BARC of Houston,TX , which is the city pound for Houston.

..I have read a lot of bad press about them a few years back, and was floored when I read that they had the second highest kill rate in the country! Then again, Houston is one of the largest cities in the U.S, so that might have something to do with it also. The facility is huge, but every time I had visited, it was pretty full. Again I want to state that my experience with them is from a few years ago.

There were supposed to be changes and improvements made, but I have not been keeping up with that and I have no idea what the conditions are like now. But, with it being a kill shelter in a heavily populated area, they most likely are still in a great deal of trouble...

Great work! Here is my list:

All in NC

Harnett County Animal Shelter - Lillington, NC
Franklin County Animal Shelter - Louisburg, NC
Columbus County Animal Shelter - Fayetteville, NC (Gasses)
Yadkin County Animal Shelter - Yadkinville, NC (Gasses)
Robeson County Animal Shelter - St Pauls, NC (Gasses)
Johnston County Animal Shelter - Smithfield, NC (Gasses)
Bladen County Animal Shelter - Elizabethtown, NC (Gasses)
Wilson County Animal Shelter - Wilson, NC
Wayne County Animal Shelter - Goldsboro, NC

I'm sure there are many, many more but these are the ones I personally know for a fact are euthanizing quite frequently. The time span on these shelters begore euhanizing ranges from about 3 days to a week. Some of them, will instantly euth "aggressive" breeds such as pits, rotti's etc and they aren't ever put for adoption. Harnett has this policy and I think Wayne County, too. Very, very sad.

This is my cute- look

Almost all NC shelters are high-kill as far as I know; and Guilford is another who euths rotties, pits and chows without allowing them out for adoption....

Fl is really bad too.

Here are a few in my area. Lennon came from NACC. They did not even put him up for adoption. Luckily, I have connections.

That's a good idea. I don't think there's any in my area. Most in my area are no -kill.

Just another- gentle giant.

I volunteer two days a week in AThens, Tn. Just moved here. I went in yesterday, to say good-bye to a beautiful baby girl. She was so scared, anyway, she was gone. I knew they only give them a certain number of days, but i was too late to say good-bye. In fact most of the cages that were full are now empty. I also went back to love on a puppy that couldn't have been but a few weeks old. He was gone also. If I had a computer at home, I would post and try to find homes for these animals. I don't understand, why they wouldn't keep the dogs if the cages are not full. So I am guessing this is a high kill shelter. The puppy wasn't there even 24 hours I don't think. the momma dogs that come in with their puppies, just to look at them and know they don't have much time is heartbreaking. also, I don't think they put much effort into trying to get lost dogs back to their owners. Personally I think the shelter could be run with more enthusiasm and better guidelines. The office is run on nothing but volunteers. They can't hire just one person even 3 days a week to make sure everyone is on the same page. So this high kill shelter is in athens, tn., McMinn Regional Humane Society. Please let me know if I can help in anyway, and what an excellent idea. blue dog
