TKC READER QUESTION: Kansas City Spending Too Much Cash On Stray Pets?!?
Here's a nice update on local progress and more services for doggies . . .
KSHB: Metro animal shelters construct new facilities to keep up with demands
Meanwhile, a TKC reader sends this question that we're throwing back to our blog community:
"TKC, with $18 million going to the new KC pet shelters and more money spent around the metro. Is there a cheaper alternative?!?!? Right now we've got far more money being spent on animals than the homeless and that doesn't seem right. I think we need to start talking about alternatives to these expensive "no kill" shelters. You've reported that there is a move to privatize these services but that seems to be just adding more cost to the total for taxpayers. Any suggestions for reducing the price would be great!"
You decide . . .
