We're thrilled to report our live release rate for dogs is 98% and cats 91%.
There were no animals euthanized for behavioral issues or space.
Any animal euthanized was due to illness.
This is particularly relevant to our cat numbers. Many cats/ kittens are coming in off the street with serious illness like distemper.
Wildlife continues to suffer with humans encroaching on living space. Please know all euthanasias are decided by and preformed by either the shelter veterinarian or the veterinarians at Antler Ridge or Raptor Trust.
