Adoption has increased this year and euthanasia has decreased.

" Statistics show increase in animal adoption in Baton Rouge, euthanasia rate down "

How is it going in your area?

Great to hear. I have the idea that the South is a terrible place to be a dog.
I live in Massachusetts and things are pretty good (relatively). Puppies are brought in from other places as there are few unwanted litters, due to spaying/neutering success.

Bella would argue with you about that!!

I do understand what you are saying but I think it's more in the rural areas that you find that.

yes... this is true.... the more rural areas are far worse....

i get HUNDREDS of emails a week for rescues and transports....and begging for someone to step up for dogs that are about to be killed because the shelter is out of room.... and easily 99% or more of those for transport are for dogs moving south to north or northeast.... a tiny tiny tiny few are for dogs moving the opposite direction..... and those are usually dogs moving from one foster home in a breed specific rescue to another.....

Apologies. The pejorative slang for a resident of Massachusetts who is (i) a terrible driver or (ii) in possession of the standard issue Massachussetts attitude is, indeed, inappropriate language.

I maintain that the Gulf Coast is a splendid place to be a dog and that the standard issue attitude is on display...

Awesome Baton Rouge! Glad to hear some good news!
Where I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida, it seems that things are going pretty well. Our local shelters seem to be taking in quite a few out of state dogs, which is a good sign.

That is good news! We have a lot of transports coming from the south, and I know a lot originate in Tennessee. There are still tons of pets in need of homes around here as well, though I don't have statistics.
