This Year’s Winners of the PAW Awards: Roscommon County Animal Shelter, Little Traverse Bay Humane Society and McCloud’s Lake Haven

Northern Michigan Euthanasia Reports
These from reports released in 2013 for the year 2012.

pets

Every year, the Michigan Department of Agriculture releases the “Michigan Animal Shelter Activity Reports” for licensed animal shelters in Michigan. Fostering-only groups do not have to report but sometimes they do as well. This report includes, among other things, intake and euthanasia information.

I have organized the information for you so that you can easily check out the numbers for the animal shelters in your community. The results we have listed are for the shelters in our area that are on the Pet Friends Magazines shelters & rescues link. Some groups might not have reported last year or didn’t make the deadline to report this year. There were also some problems with the state’s forms this year and things that were left out, including how many animals 6 mos. old and younger were euthanized. Instead, they added information on how many animals 6 mos. old and younger were admitted.

Because I’d like the numbers to be as accurate as possible, I subtracted the “returned” animals from the intake numbers before figuring out the euthanasia rates. the starting numbers of intake reflect the number of animals put up for adoption without counting those animals that were returned to their owners.

For the purposes of Pet Friend Magazine’s 5th Annual “PAW” Award (Pet Friends Animal Welfare Award), the winners are based on the percentage of the least amount of euthanasias for the year 2012 compared to the intake numbers of cats and dogs.

To be elibible for the award, a rescue group or shelter must take in at least 50 animals to make them comparable to other shelters in deciding who wins the awards.

The Roscommon County Animal Shelter and the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society tied as winners of the 2012 PAW Award from Pet Friends Magazine in the DOG category for the least amount of euthanasias.

McCloud’s Lake Haven (Newaygo County) won the 2012 PAW Award from Pet Friends Magazine in the CAT category for the least amount of euthanasias. Although the Manistee County Animal Shelter and the AuSable Valley Animal shelter had zero cat euthanasis, they did not qualify for an award because of their low intake numbers.

Congratulations to our winners – and to those of you who are doing a great job to reduce the number of animals killed in your care! Click on the link to check out the results of this report.
