This morning I received a call from Marie Montera, a reporter for Channel 3 news. They were doing a follow up story about the mass euthanasia at Lied this past February. The Humane Society released a 200 page report detailing the procedures at Lied and what was going on behind the scenes. Some of the details were pretty graphic, others were just plain lack of training.
They also interviewed my vet, Doctor David Henderson of the Sunrise Vet clinic. Doc Henderson has had past experience running a shelter and is a volunteer for Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary, in addition to running his own practice (if you are looking for a vet, I HIGHLY recommend his office).
The interview aired at 5 pm today and will was replayed again at six o'clock. You'll see me as the "animal advocate". One of the best things to come about from this story is raising awareness of the problems local shelters face in Las Vegas. If you are wondering what you can do to help stop overcrowding at the shelter, make sure your pet is spayed or neutered and microchipped. In Clark County, your animal must be altered, unless its of breeding quality and you have the proper licensing.
