Effective January 2, 2015, Clermont to the Rescue Humane Society (CTTRHS) assumed dog warden and shelter operations from the Clermont County Humane Society. CTTRHS posts monthly statistics for BOTH dogs AND cats on their web site at www.CTTRHS.org.
Due to your efforts 2014 was the safest year EVER to be a lost or homeless dog in Clermont County (the shelter stopped reporting stats for felines in the spring of 2013). The live save rate for dogs climbed 20% to 82% – CONGRATULATIONS!
As the County’s K-9 Designee, CPA rescued 177 dogs from euthanasia at the Clermont County Animal Shelter in 2014, increasing the live save rate 15%! This means that virtually all the additional lives saved were due to your effort – thank you.
The live save rate for canines at the Clermont County Animal Shelter rose to over 61%, making 2013 the first year that more dogs went home through the front door via redemption and adoption than left through the back – CONGRATULATIONS!
As the County’s K-9 Designee Clermont Pets Alive! saved the lives of 66 dogs (89% of those placed on the euthanasia list) in 2013. In the brief 10 weeks of supporting the homeless pets of Clermont County, CPA INCREASED the LIVE SAVE RATE at the Clermont County Shelter by 5%!! This is a tremendous testament to the power of embracing the community as a solution to ending the killing of healthy and treatable animals at our open-admission shelter.
Thank you to all who adopt, foster, donate and volunteer to Clermont Pets Alive! to support the homeless pets of Clermont County. YOUR support makes a DIFFERENCE, one animal at a time. Please share your experience with others to grow support for ending the killing at the Clermont County Animal Shelter.
THE OTHER PAW – CATS
When the CCHS approved their 2013 contract with the Board of Clermont Commissioners in April, they dropped the reporting of felines from their monthly statistics. This “oversight” was highlighted to the County with a request to include cats (and all other animals), with no impact. The Humane Society has not returned to reporting statistics for ALL animals entering their facility, clouding their fate in mystery.
In an effort to promote full transparency, let’s extrapolate 2013 numbers for felines based on the only year for which a break-down species is available (2011). If the same reduction in intake and increase in adoptions is assumed for cats between 2011 and 2013, it’s estimated the CCHS KILLED ALMOST 1,000 CATS and KITTENS in 2013!
|*Estimate Based on Canine Improvements|
Full disclosure will allow additional animal advocates within the Community to step up to affect change. In 2013 Clermont Pets Alive! rescued 43 cats and kittens from death (91% of those made available on the euthanasia list), increasing the estimated SAVE RATE 3% in 10 weeks. If you’re interested in knowing the statistics for all animals entering the COUNTY’S shelter, give the Humane Society a call at 513-732-8854 or send an email to info@ClermontCountyAnimalShelter.com.
The Clermont County Humane Society showed a 9% increase in the live release rate in 2012 over 2011 but the numbers make it very clear they need significant help to achieve No Kill (defined as saving over 90%).
|Total Animals Received:||3,496|
|Total Animals Destroyed:||2,531||72%|
|Total Animals Adopted:||649||19%|
|Total Animals Claimed:||297||8%|
|Total Animals DOA/Escaped:||16||<1%|
The numbers for 2012 are no different than their performance for the previous seven years demonstrating they continue to operate within their comfort zone of adopting some and killing the rest.
