Video Featuring Dog: Jack

DCAWS “Well Trained & Smart” Dog Jack. Jack has been in foster care for about six months. He lives with other dogs, cats and children and he knows how to adjust to them all. Jack is a “very sociable” dog. The foster parent loves Jack, but she really can not keep him because she has multiple dogs and cats to care for. She would love to see Jack in a loving and caring home surrounded by other pets and a family environment. Jack does excellent at adoption events, he is loved by all our volunteers. All the DCAWS volunteer staff are dumbfounded why Jack has not been adopted, we can only think he has fallen into the “black dog syndrome”. Please help us and his foster parent by finding Jack the loving and caring home he truly deserves!

2015 Statistics

2015 STATISTICS
DENT COUNTY ANIMAL WELFARE SOCIETY

Cats brought in by the city: 104
Cats received from public or born: 159
Total cats: 263

Dogs brought in by the city: 148
Dogs received from public or born: 239
Total dogs: 387

Total Intake: 650

Total dog placement: 361

Total Placement: 592

Missing, lost or stolen: None

Euthanized: No dogs and 19 cats (all at end stage of FelV, FIV or FIP)

Died: 27 cats and 7 dogs. Most were neonates.

Average shelter population was 129 pets per month.

Total intake was significantly less than 2014 when intake was 938 as opposed to 650 for 2015.
Reasons for this include possibly more animals being spayed/neutered by the public, terrifically high intake of cats from feral colonies in 2014 that depleted that source, and much less litters taken in from other areas. January 2014 was by far the largest month of intake. We were blessed with caring people who adopted some of the long-term pets and cats with FeLV and FIV. We currently have no FeLV cats and FIV population is down. Help is still needed in the areas of long-term pets and FIV cats Both adoptions and income are usually good in December, especially so in 2015.
