2017 Animal Shelter Annual Report

 

Founders of LASSI began support of Oceana County Animal Control Shelter in earnest in 2010. LASSI was formed in 2011 to bring additional resources to bear on the issues facing Animal Control.


In 2009 and 2010, 44% of admitted stray dogs were euthanized. In 2011, that dropped to 30% euthanized, 13% in 2012, down to 3% in 2013, and 4% in 2014. In 2015, only 1 stray dog was euthanized due to un-treatable health issues. In 2016, 7% of dogs were euthanized due to un-treatable health issues or behavioral issues. No dogs were euthanized due to lack of space, lack of time, or lack of veterinary care. In 2017, 4% of dogs were euthanized due to un-treatable health issues or behavioral issues . No dogs were euthanized due to lack of space, lack of time, or lack of veterinary care. There were 126 adoptions and 75 returned to owners. 78 were spayed or neutered before adoption. We continue to look for training and solutions for behavioral issues.

In 2009, 65% of admitted stray cats were euthanized. In 2010 that dropped to 41% of cats euthanized, back to 44% in 2011, and down to 37% in 2012. In 2013 that dropped to 14%, and 11% in 2014. In 2015, 7% of stray cats were euthanized, including those FeLV/FIV positive and feral. We strive to find alternatives for FeLV/FIV positive and feral cats. In 2016 20% of admitted stray cats were euthanized, including those FeLV/FIV positive and Feral. in 2017 15% of admitted stray cats were euthanized including those of owner request & FeLV/FIV positive and Feral. No cats were euthanized due to lack of space, lack of time, or lack of veterinary care. There were 123 adoptions and 14 transferred to others shelters or rescues. 62 were spayed or neutered before adoption. We continue to strive to find alternatives for FeLV/FIV positive and feral cats and have found rescues that take FeLV/FIV positive & feral cats in to find homes.

We also have found homes for an abandoned pigmy goat, a Nubian goat, a Brazilian Red-tail Boa, and a rooster.

Although our funds are limited, we have had some success with community outreach for owned pet spay/neuter and owned pet emergency veterinary care.
