Have you seen what's new on the LAAS Website? www.laanimalservices.com
You can now translate the website into nine different languages.
There is a new Blog below on the cruelty of tethering called, "Chains of Love or Abuse".
The New Hope Program scheduled to roll out within the next month or so is described. The document on line is just to help the rescue groups get acquainted with the program. LAAS will have a public meeting to explain the program in detail within the next couple of weeks. The program will not be implemented until after the public meeting.
A report on Operation FELIX (Feral Education and Love Instead of X-termination) is now on line for your information. It details why TNR (Trap/Neuter/Return) is the only viable, humane, non-lethal method for effectively reducing the feral cat population in any community or location.
My position on many common sense approaches to humane animal care on a community wide level is also available under GM's Position Statements.
Also read about Patrick, the Irish Setter mix, adopted by a member of the Mayor's Office at a City Council meeting on St. Patrick's Day!
And much more.
Also, don't forget to check out Dana Bartholomew's new article on LAAS in The Daily News. http://www.dailynews.com/news/ci_3629789
Euthanasia for dogs and cats in January 2006 was down 25%, and down 33% in February, and we are on track to reduce euthanasia 40% in March (its at 39.79% as of this writing on March 24th) compared to the same months in 2005. Stay tuned!
