Rescue Me:
Legislating Cooperation Between Animal Control
Authorities and Rescue Organizations
Notwithstanding the overwhelming evidence that shows how important
pets are to many people in the United States, the leading cause of death for
dogs and cats in this country is euthanasia because of the lack of homes.
Although progress has been made, conservative estimates are that between
three and four million dogs and cats are euthanized each year. A
successful program for implementing non-lethal strategies to control the
pet population incorporates three prongs: (a) increasing adoptions, (b)
increasing the number of animals sterilized and (c) increasing the number
of animals retained in homes. This Article focuses on the legislative
actions that should be taken immediately to implement these non-lethal
strategies so that this needless euthanization can end.
