We are so very excited at the progress Columbus has made towards being a no-kill community!
When Columbus Animal Care and Animal (CACC) post their monthly numbers, the euthanasia numbers includes two things that really don’t tell the most accurate picture. The first is those that are done for out-of-county animals (for our neighboring counties who do not have animal control services.) The second is the owner-requested euthanasia. These owners, who may not be able to afford the expense of having a vet euthanize their pet, are taking advantage of the low rates the city offers to keep their pets from suffering.
Last week, Facebook was covered in requests to contact our Columbus councilors about proposed fee increases in Animal Control’s budget. While the information about the fee increases was not correct, there are concerns about the budget as proposed to council that needs to be given attention.
