2006

Source: California Department of Health Services, Veterinary Public Health Section. Recent data has been received from the State of California as non-complying counties submitted their 2006 figures, providing the most complete reporting since 1991. Impound figures will seem poorer than before, while adoption and redemption trends will appear higher than usual. It’’s important to realize that from 1999 until 2005, on average 10-12 counties routinely did not submit their data to the state. For detail, please see http://www.naiaonline.org/issues/Caliifornia_Shelter_Statistics.htm The State has not yet released the figures from Plumas Cty., nor the complete figures from Alameda Cty., Contra Costa Cty. and Placer Cty. 2006 Annual Report of Local Rabies Control Activities for California (includes shelter intake and outgo data http://www.naiashelterproject.org/pdfs/2006_ Annual_Report_of_Cal_Rabies.pdf Dogs Captured by animal control: 182073 Surrendered by owner: 76007 Surrendered by public:111857 Died: 2968 Stolen/escaped: 1057 Cats Captured by animal control: 122953 Surrendered by owner: 55780 Surrendered by public: 179285 Died: 5853 Stolen/escaped: 3614
