On the out take side, 468 animals were processed out of the facility: 228 animals were adopted (72 kittens, 27 cats, 15 puppies, 108 dogs and 6 other); 93 animals were transferred to rescue organizations and 68 dogs, and 4 cats were reclaimed by their owner.

Sadly 46 animals were euthanized (25 cats and 21 dogs).

July was an extremely busy and chaotic month for all of us here at MCACC. We began our IGSA with Fort Campbell, KY Stray Animal Control, we had adoption events, staff on vacation, and kittens and canines coming out our ears.

However, the staff here has been simply amazing as always it doesn’t matter what the world throws at them day in and day out the continue to give their best for all of our animals no matter what the day brings.

July was a record month for MCACC and the staff, our volunteers, rescues, fosters, and those that have donated their time, resources, and funds to help see our animals get the best care and homes possible are the ones to thank for all of this hard work.

In July we had a record live release rate of 91%, 228 Adoptions, and 471 Live Releases!! We had one of our lowest months for euthanasia at 44 and tied for our least number of owner surrenders at 34.

Just to gauge the direction we are going, we had 202 Animals Euthanized in July of 2017, 154 in July of 2018 and 44 in July of 2019.

We also had 124 Owner surrenders in 2017, 92 in 2018, and 34 in 2019.
