Other miscellaneous explanatory notes:

Wildlife euthanized were critically injured/dying.

Animal who died while in custody was a young goat in foster care, found post-mortem to be infected with Caseous Lymphadentitis (CL).

In 2018, PETA helped more than 25,000 animals from more than 250 cities, and spent more than $2,300,000 on companion-animal services locally. PETA operates the only private animal shelter in our area (perhaps the entire state) with people on call 24/7/365 for after-hour emergencies and to welcome all animals, regardless of adoptability, without appointments, waiting lists, admission fees, or restricted hours. PETA's shelter is also one of the few that still provide end-of-life services for destitute owners (more than 500 of them in 2018) desperate to alleviate their animals' suffering. Many were referred by other animal shelters and veterinary clinics.

PETA's free/low-cost mobile clinics sterilized 11,464 animals, including 1,121 pit bulls and 610 feral cats. We transported roughly 965 dogs and cats to and from the clinics free of charge for free services. PETA assisted more than 3,000 families in keeping animals by providing medical services, including repairing prolapsed organs, performing surgeries on dogs suffering from life-threatening uterine infections, removing tumors and ruptured growths, performing drainage surgery for hematomas and infected wounds, treating various infections, and by showing them how to cope with behavioral quirks, grooming challenges, and more. We distributed more than 300 doghouses and almost 1,500 bales of straw bedding free to “outdoor” dogs.
