Why the North Carolina Animal Welfare Section is important
March 11th, 2011
Created in 2005, this underfunded program has generated significant positive change for the animals of North Carolina and the shelters caring for them. The Animal Welfare Section:
Why should you oppose this proposal?
If the Animal Welfare Section is eliminated there will be no oversight of animal shelters, boarding facilities, pet stores or large rescue groups. Over 320,000 animals enter NC shelters annually. Our shelters are in crisis due to pet overpopulation and budget cuts. Elimination of this section would be a devastating blow to the animals and the men and women who are caring for them.
Who would be impacted by this proposal?
The elimination of the Animal Welfare Section cuts
less than $400,000
from the Department’s $61 million budget.
The Animal Welfare Section has been under funded since the inception of the program in 2005. Even grossly underfunded, the Section positively impacts over 320,000 shelter animals annually, hundreds of animal welfare workers across the state, and animal facilities in 100 counties.
