Pet Rescue Pound Dog Campaign

They don't do much work with rescue because they don't need to - they do the job they are paid to do and don't palm it off to unpaid volunteers in order to keep pets alive. They do both health and behavioral rehab, their live release rate is very high, and their length of stay is short. Rescue is reserved for those few pets who truly need it.

I agree! :thumbsup:

They are better than a lot with dogs,but they need to do much better with cats,as do every facility.There is always room for improvement in kill rates in every facility,sdch included.

Totally agree there's always room for improvement, but until TNR is legal and able to be performed by councils and facilities like SDCH, it's almost impossible to achieve the same live release rate as dogs. The vast majority of cats that are killed at SDCH are not able to be rehomed as pets. Without TNR as an option for them, they're limited in their options. I don't think rescues are willing to take a completely unsocialised cat in to their homes, so rescue isn't really a solution.
