Euthanasia rate too high?

Posted: Tuesday, January 1, 2013 12:00 am | Updated: 11:37 am, Wed Jan 2, 2013.

Seven out of every 10 animals taken into the Galveston County Animal Resource Center are euthanized, a review of shelter records shows.

On average, 632 animals are brought into the center each month. Less than 30 percent ever find new homes or are returned to their owners, animal shelter records show. County health district records show that through the first 11 months of 2012, about 70 percent of the animals that came into the shelter were euthanized.
