    and what is your solution?

      Re-enstate the AWL. Begin vaccinating pets on intake. Update the 100 year old facilities. Photograph pets who are in the pound.

      These aren’t ‘my’ solutions. They are just solutions.

    sounds like they are going to reinstate AWL and put in ‘safety checks’ in. Maybe overzealous in their getting to zero goals and compromised animal welfare? The facilities were converted before they moved in

      Maybe. Or maybe the council who had a long history of mismanaging their community’s animals, simply remained true to form and took a ham fisted approach here too?

      Certainly in successful communities, animal management and animal welfare groups work together with a life saving focus. To go from 90% kill rate, to a G2Z model must have come as an enormous culture shock to those used to using killing as their primary ‘solution’.

        so long as honest reporting and animals don’t end up suffering because of fixation on figures

    Give them every chance to find a new home. They deserve some happiness after being dumped by their previous owners.
