The Mid-Year Shelter results are AWSOME!! See attached line graph, 2015 Projection 6 Months Data. The estimated 2015 year end Shelter statistics are reductions of 14% Intake and 38% Euthanasia compared to 2014. When compared to 2009 peak year, the estimated reductions are 51% Intake and 81% Euthanasia. This assumes the next 6 months results are same as first 6 months.
