I agree, I never go in there without seeing at least five dogs that I would love to have. But you would be surprised how little adoptions we get and how uninformed people are around here. We recently had a public meeting on the overpopulation issue, and half of the people didn't know animals were put down in shelters.

Does that shelter do any transports out of state? My friend's rescue gets contacted regularly by southern shelters looking to send dogs up north. Probably over 90% of the dogs she places come in on transports from the south. Most of our local humane societies also transport dogs in. I think it is generally the "outgoing" shelter that makes contact with other shelters to take dogs in.

Actually, we did recently fly a dalmation to a rescue in Florida.
