Columbus animal shelter group falls below 10 percent euthanasia rate
Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson announced Tuesday that the city has received a “No Kill” community status.
“This could not be possible without our many shelter partners: Animal Ark Rescue, Animal SOS, Columbus Animal Care and Control, Harris County Animal Control, Harris County Humane Society, Paws Humane, and the citizens of these two communities and surrounding areas,” said Tomlinson in a press release.
“We will work to maintain or even increase this level of pet adoption. Achieving less than 10 percent euthanasia rate as a community is an amazing feat. The whole community should take great pride in this achievement.”
Numbers from the Pet Coalition of Muscogee and Harris Counties show that the live release rate of adoptable animals is now a combined 92 percent.
