Manatee County post gains in 2012 shelter numbers

The 2012 shelter numbers are in for Manatee County as it moves forward seeking to attain the No Kill "holy grail".

Manatee County did fell short on reaching no kill status with "live save" rates of 79% which is a giant improvement from the previous year according to the article. I haven’t had the chance to analyze the numbers nor would that alone paint the entire picture without cross referencing the numbers with cost and budget numbers to compare.

One item that never gets counted as we "crunch the numbers" is the relationship of the shelter to its citizens on whether or not goals were met. In that category I give the shelter staff, its citizens and the rescue a 100%. you are all working together as a team and ultimately that's what the animals really need.
