Can anyone tell me why the cage capacity for dogs is 250% that for cats (290 vs 710), and the cage capacity for "other" is also larger than for cats? If there were as much capacity for cats as dogs, would not the egregious discrimination be addressed to an extent?
I just don't get it. Cats, in general require far less space than dogs. If they had the same total square footage as dogs, they might be able to house 1,500 cats or more. So why the discrimination? Why the much shorter hold time and much quicker kill for cats?
The number of cats impounded are three times as many as "Other animals" yet actually have 10 fewer cages assigned for them.
