"Sure enough, close to 1,300 animals showed up from 18 shelters and approximately 50 rescue groups, each ready to find his or her own happy ever after.
"In the two-day event, there were 284 same-day adoptions and 102 animals pulled from shelters to be placed safely into rescue groups (including Best Friends).". (Note: the 102 will just be local "relocations.")
And all the while, Best Fiends is collecting names and addresses so they can solicit donations, keep in mind Best Fiends is not really a local charity. They use us to garner donations. But look at those numbers? Do they justify the City giving away a new shelter to these people? I say it is a poor showing and all the shelter will become is a sanctuary, useless as such.
So today's "Public Information" should have been about this adoption event, one would think. Now one thinks, Barnette is so ashamed of the poor showing of her buddies that she is trying to take the focus off and not even talk about it. How many failures does it take, Mayor, are you going to jerk around like you did with Boks? Cut your losses while you can.
