(3) The Dogs Database is unable to be interrogated to the level required to answer this question.

(4) The shelter is designed to carry fifty (50) dogs at any one time. In the event of extreme overload each pen can be split doubling the capacity to one hundred (100).

(5) As at the 8 March 2006 there were 29 dogs impounded at the Mugga Lane Facility.

(6) The information sought is not in an easily retrievable form. The information sought solely for the purpose of answering the question would require a considerable diversion of resources. In this instance I do not believe it appropriate to divert resources for the purpose of answering the member's question.
