Rumor is that Boks is going to up the killing of dogs because of complaints of warehousing. I have been told dogs with minor injuries or diseases will be deemed sick or perhaps even irremediably suffering for all I know.
In any event, we will know when this months stats come out next month. Likely it is true. There is supposed to be a quota of 80 animals per day.
Although I am sure killing will be going up because it is mid summer and impounds are increasing, it will be because of overcrowding, not warehousing. Warehousing is when you keep an animal in for a long time for whatever reason. The reason for the killing now is overcrowding. The animals kept too long will be destroyed.
Not enough are being adopted out. It is not the new, adoptable dogs that will be killed first, it is the ones who have been there for a month unadopted, like many pit bulls. Of course, killing for minor illnesses is something LAAS has always been accused of.
This is what hapens when you don't have good adoption programs, outreach, fosters, or a good GM.
Until you organize, get after Tony, get after Boks, become active, this will happen ALL OF THE TIME.
