Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2013 Week 3 Hansard (28 February) . . Page.. 992..
Mr Rattenbury: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) Domestic Animal Services (DAS) took in a total of 1491 dogs in 2012 (including a carryover of 35 dogs from 2011).
(2) In 2012 DAS euthanised a total of 226 dogs.
(3) The re-homing figure provided to The Canberra Times was calculated by using the following information:
• 1311 dogs were identified as suitable for re-homing in 2012.
• 66 dogs out of the 1311 dogs identified as suitable for re-homing were unable to be re-homed and were euthanised.
• Therefore 1245 out of 1311 dogs were re-homed in 2012.
• This gives a re-homing rate of 95%.
Note: The remaining 20 dogs were carried over from 2012 to 2013.
