And it just keeps rolling along, folks. This week this article,,  focused on the increased impounds and euthanization under the reign of Queen Barnette. Duh, doesn't this always happen when the public thinks you are going "No Kill"? Of course it does, history proves it. In every case of an open door shelter going "No Kill", suddenly animals come out of the woodwork, owners line up to relinquish their pets, the streets become overrun, adoptions fall. It's just a fact of this movement. So why is Breeder Barnette so astounded at the rise in LA City? Guess she forgot to read the Book of "No Kill". 

Recent reports from Los Angeles Animal Services show a marked increase in euthanized animals — jumping from 150 dogs between 2008 and 2009 to over 1,000 dogs between 2009 and 2010.
They also show a decrease in adoptions over the same period, and an increase in animal intake — nearly 2,000 more dogs in the past year alone.
We’ve been somewhat astounded by it, quite frankly,” said Brenda Barnette, general manager for Los Angeles City Animal Services.
It's not from lack of trying to ship animals out of LA City. Imagine how much worse it would be if Barnette weren't able to pimp off her shelter animals to other areas. These transports aren't going to save her and neither are these transport saving the lives of animals. Oh, I know they save the transported animals but it is offset by the deaths of the shelter animals in the areas where these transports land. So it is causing other animals to die. Such is this morbid program.

This article shows that these areas are still having to euthanize for time and space.

"Jon Gramstad and Barbara Spears are less concerned with such warm and fuzzy details than they are with the cold, unhappy numbers: Forty-three percent of the 8,300 dogs and cats brought into the shelter last year ended up dead." 

Yet, the transports go into Portland on a regular basis. When will people learn that this is a scam, designed to put pressure on the shelters. The receiving "rescues" are allowing their own local shelter animals to die while they are helping the world by bringing in dogs that will "keep people from buying from breeders". What a flimsy excuse for causing so many deaths.
