I am tired of it. Things like this always make me angry.

People in the world just have to have someone to pick on, if it isn’t racism it’s certainly some type of prejudice, and they have moved on to intolerance of animals. This intolerance is the very discrimination which my poor defenseless dog has to endure every day of her life. Whether it’s meeting a new person, attempting to change insurance or renting a house; all say that she is an immediate threat and the chance can’t be taken.

Facts behind Stockton animal shelter's kill rate

STOCKTON, CA - Stockton has seen a dramatic increase in the number of dogs arriving at the animal shelter, leading to a sharp rise in the number of animals being killed.

The shelter took in 574 dogs last month, up from 445 dogs in August 2010.  The additional intake led to 466 dogs being euthanized between Aug. 1 and Sept. 1.

News10 previously reported 466 as the total number of animals put down at the shelter; the number failed to include cats, which brings the actual shelter total to 971.

Shelter supervisor Pat Claerbout, who began Aug. 1, has been targeted by critics for the high number of killings on her watch.
