Dr. Hannah deSoto Tostensen

Hannah Tostensen of Darien, GA here! I am amazed -- and pleased -- that the study Chamblee Abernethy of Decatur, GA, and I completed this year is "out there". Thanks for helping to expose the critical need for reliable baseline data readily available to everyone. Until animal control facilities stop "circling the wagons" (I like Nathan's term), transparency will be nothing more than a sweet dream.


Thanks for covering this. One thhing I've been wondering about is just how are the nationwide kill numbers arrived at? For one thing, the exact numbers seem to vary depending on who is stating them. We are told that shelter killings have declined from 17 million (or perhaps some other number)in the 1970s to 4 million (or maybe 11 million), as mentioned in the GVAW study. The GVAW went through an enormous amount of work in an effort to get a fix on numbers fom one state from one year. Given the enormity of the task and the state of recordkeeping in some 'shelters' (which may well have been even worse 30 years ago), how much do we really know. I have an interest in both biology, especially of populations, and statistics, so I'm really curious from both an animal welfare and a scientific standpoint. Do you count doses of Fatal Plus sold to shelters? Even if you can get that information, that doesn't account for animals gassed or killed in other manners.


Valerie, I think these national numbers are based on estimates on intake and euthanasia numbers per capita. I don't think anyone is even close to a "real" number -- but most people who do this based on projections end up with pretty similar numbers.


Moving into MN the actual winters present a challenge not just in stay cozy [b][url=]discount mini bailey button ugg boots[/url][/b] qet rys nevertheless seem trendy doing it. When I noticed these kinds of UGGS on sale about My partner and i leaped about the offer. Really like them!My spouse and i purchased a set of these UGGs as well as was so let down. We were holding nothing like our previous UGGs. They appear along with feel cheap. I delivered it as well as dellboots speedily acknowledged my credit card and I purchased another thing. Really like! They're awesome.
I had been a bit hesitant about it color because it seems brighter than it classic tall ugg boots outlet [b][url=]bailey button ugg boots[/url][/b] yvu wzm looks when I obtained them right now I droped in love and ended up being thrilled to add the crooks to my own Ugg boot series!
I'm a enthusiast of [b][url=]metallic short ugg boots clearance[/url][/b] metallic short ugg boots clearance erk Ugg boot and also have been because my personal very first pair in 2005, however i can't stand how a newer versions in shape. My spouse and i liked our basic pants in '06, yet have got rarely donned they I got within the same style this past year. They may be also small throughout the foot and also narrower when compared with my personal original documents. The newest shoe in addition is not as adaptable because old set is and it's really hard to tuck my own trousers in them. We question I possibly could crack these inside much sometimes. My mother just became a set of your Bailey Switches and that i would the exact same for anyone. Too narrow across the rearfoot. I am annoyed Some consider using a size up after i had the risk. My spouse and i almost certainly probably would not get a new measurement straight down without having striving your own common dimensions 1st.
Just received my own Ugg boot these well as incredible, so what can I only say, besides they may be remarkable? We was not wishing a lot of because My spouse and i curently have a pair of EMU footwear. I didnrrrt think that there were much of a difference between them, till I received my Ugg boots. Your Uggs, My partner and i experienced, acquired a lot more support and also the diploma was not while difficult while my personal EMUs. The actual trunk isn't as heavy as our EMUs both. Maybe it's due to the diverse feet? Either way, We are very pleased with my personal acquire.
I like UGG boots! I've a couple of pairs involving Vintage Brief throughout dark as well as saying. My spouse and i use 8M in ever before boot My spouse and i very own apart from Uggs. I've tons of footwear (but never adequate). Dimension 7 is ideal after a few hrs of damage. I have one particular couple of dimension 8-10 and they are far too huge as well as washout about in my ft .. My partner and i use those in your home merely.
I became overdue towards the Ugg sheepskin boots, nevertheless I am pleased My spouse and i arrived. These are great! Granted Ugg boots are certainly not the most beautiful footwear, nevertheless young man they may be comfy, comfortable, and also toasty. My hubby would rather request wherever We keep the ice block I apply our toes in during the cold months. I recently cannot have them hot inside, or perhaps out there. Ugg boots work although! So that as often, is completely wonderful!
I recently ordered due to the fact to enhance my own Ugg collection. I have several different sets in several colors and styles. I used to be very disappointed with the excellence of the fresh shoes or boots Ugg can be producing. The base in the footwear wouldn't continue to be upward as well as has been very thin. The sheepskin coating has not been the same in the boots possibly, then one was significantly leaner than the other. In addition, boots ended up too reduce and i also thought my own foot sliding beyond them each step. This is simply not the fault of phrboots, nevertheless the proven fact that Ugg boot is apparently generating reduced top quality footwear is incredibly disappointing. I desired your chestnut color, nonetheless they feel cheaply made. I additionally feel like my personal foot would get through the very best after a few has on. I just obtained the chocolate bars colour regarding holiday plus they really feel only ideal! I am just like the proverb kinds usually are not created such as they will was previously. I will be going back these people and expect in which Uggs begins producing their saying Ugg boot with better quality once again soon ahead of I buy yet another match.
Love these boots! I have had your Basic Extra tall before plus they acquired too comfortable at times, however, these are great! Which i put on a Seven.5M in some other shoes or boots. I could a Some over these nevertheless they ended up therefore small that they hurt along with experienced similar to my base was dropping off to sleep. It also felt just like my personal feet ended up scrunched. The 7 feels more leisurely, warm and ideal! I would not recommend dimensions down 1.A few styles unless you never brain the feet becoming confined.
