Perth Amboy Animal Shelter - Petfinder
During the middle of 2012, Perth Amboy hired current Head Animal Control Officer, Christie Minigiello, to work at the animal shelter. The city hired Christie based on a recommendation from her program professor. Other than a very short stint at another animal control agency, Christie was new to animal sheltering. Prior to this, Christie worked in the dental field, operated a crafts business and was a passionate animal advocate. For example, several years ago Christie sent a dog, who we considered adopting before choosing another long-stay dog, to a reputable sanctuary after the shelter decided to euthanize the dog for alleged aggression. Thus, Perth Amboy decided to hire a competent person with a passion for saving animals.
Some municipal animal control shelters may be doing a better job with cats than the numbers below indicate. In some cases, municipalities may frown on government run shelters using taxpayer funds to rescue cats from elsewhere. For example, Perth Amboy Animal Shelter had a significant adoption shortfall, but only used a small percentage of its cat capacity. In other words, it is quite likely this shelter adopted out its cats quite quickly, but failed to meet its adoption target due to not using enough of its space. This shelter saved 93% of its cats compared to the previous shelter management’s . Similarly, this shelter adopted out more than 10 times as many cats in 2013 than the previous management did a few years before. My suggestion to shelters like Perth Amboy Animal Shelter is to find ways to use more of your facility’s capacity to expand your lifesaving work to other areas. For example, these shelters should consider taking in animals from other shelters for a fee or even contracting with other municipalities.
“Sigmund is getting up to some odd tactics to try and find his new owners… turns out you won’t just adopt a cat, but you’ll get a window washer as well!” in Perth, Australia wrote at . A streaming live feed from Kitty Cam last weekend helped Cat Haven in Perth, Australia as it doubled cat adoptions for April, compared to last year. The upsurge in adoptions came as a welcome relief in a time of crisis for the area’s cat population."Sigmund is getting up to some odd tactics to try and find his new owners... turns out you won't just adopt a cat, but you'll get a window washer as well!" in Perth, Australia wrote at .Perth Amboy Animal Shelter also did a reasonably good job getting cats out of the shelter quickly. In order to do a proper analysis with enough data, I combined 2014 and 2015 cat intake and disposition statistics in the table below. Over this period, the shelter had an 81% cat live release rate. As with dogs, Perth Amboy Animal Shelter did much of the work based on cat adoptions exceeding the number of cats sent to rescues by an 8 to 1 margin. While I target a lower average length of stay for cats in , an average length of stay of 61 days for cats (75 days for cats who are adopted out) proves the shelter does not have to hoard cats to save a large percentage of them.Kitty Cam was just part of the shelter’s outreach to the public to help adopt cats and save lives; and the record setting adoptions in April came at a time of crises for Perth’s cats. Due to an explosion in the number of homeless felines, a shortage of foster caregivers for kittens, and a perceived lack of adopters, the shelter announced on March 22 that they were suspending their foster program and many cats could end up being euthanized. They are hoping to maintain their newfound momentum in rehoming cats in need.#registered burmese cat for adoption #burmese cat for sale #perth wa Australia #registered pedigree burmese cat kitten breeder #retired breeding Burmese cat #natmac #natmac Burmese cats kittens
