Our Conclusion:


Based on the Following criteria:

Local Trend is POSITIVE
Albuquerque, compared to others, is STABLE
Citizen perception compared to data MATCHES

Local Trend LOCAL TREND:

The number of dogs and cats euthanized at Albuquerque's animal shelter has steadily decreased since FY/05. When adjusted for population, this trend is even more positive. Measures of owner responsibility, compliance with animal regulations, and enforcement of regulations have all increased over the same time period.


Compared to peer communities, Albuquerque's number of euthanized dogs and cats per 1,000 population is about average. There is no comparable data for Albuquerque's measures of enforcement, compliance and owner responsibility.

Citizens in certain neighborhoods ranked this condition as having achieved more progress than did citizens in other neighborhoods; the relationship between the citizens' neighborhood and the perception of progress was true to a statistically significant degree.
