"Washoe County, NV, is also made up of many towns and cities, too. Seventeen to be exact, including Reno and Sparks. When Washoe County created a joint powers agreement for animal services and merged into one large entity, it was an agreement with three separate municipal governments: the City of Sparks, the City of Reno, and Washoe County, representing all the unincorporated towns including Empire, Sun Valley, and others. As a result, Washoe County Animal Services became Washoe County Regional Animal Services servicing all of them and the others ceased doing their own animal control. Granted some of those communities are really small. Empire, NV, was a company town and the company shut down. It has just a few hundred residents, so maybe it is misleading to call that its own No Kill community. Maybe. But Washoe County is certainly not one No Kill community, it is at least three—Reno, Sparks, and the County—and as many as 17!"
Along with this "quote" comes a map which fails to show true county lines.
Empire has 75 people on a good day. Sun Valley was listed in Ripleys Believe it or Not as the worlds largest trailer park. There are not 17 communities in Washoe County unless you count sub-divisions as communities, what a nut job. We are called a Washoe County Regional Animal Services because we serve WASHOE COUNTY not Carson City or Podunk Utah.
Only the two cities of Reno and Sparks merged with Washoe County and Sparks never had a Shelter it hired out to the County. Sparks animal trucks went to Washoe. Two cities merged with ONE COUNTY. There is one shelter for all the county and all the population is in Reno and Sparks.
Whinograd is trying to cover his ass again with all the Austin crap hitting the fan. Trying to make like "No Kill" is taking over. Sorry Whino, it ain't sticking on this wall. People are awakening to your lies, distortions, intimidations, and your house of cards is crumbling under your feet. With the likes of Ryan Clinton just waiting to take your place too. I don't know which is the lesser of two evils actually.
