Another study had found that “approximately 26% of dogs were adopted, 16% were reclaimed by guardians, 55% were euthanized, and the remainder had unknown or other dispositions” (Frank & Carlisle-Frank, 2006). The low amount of adoptions contrasting to the large amount of dogs euthanized shows the importance of promoting animal adoption in order to save countless innocent lives. In contrast, people like Dr. Lila Miller, vice-president of veterinary outreach and veterinary adviser for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to animals believe that although euthanasia of animals is "Right or wrong, fair or unfair, it's a realistic assessment of people's resources"(Whitcomb, 2010). Meaning that, although negative, euthanasia is necessary in order to reduce the amount of overpopulation in animal shelters. Considering that 90% of animals that enter animal shelters are healthy and adoptable (Frank & Carlisle-Frank, 2003), there is no purpose for euthanizing innocent animals when there could be ways to promote th... ... middle of paper ... ...ddressing the Problem of Pet Overpopulation: The Experience of New Hanover County Animal Control Services.
Other symptoms include disorientation, active incontinence and trying to pass through narrow spaces.

These dogs, while lost, may become scared of their unfamiliar surroundings and attack an innocent person out of fear, or become provoked by people who wish to “mess around” with a seemingly defenseless stray dog, which in turn could lead to their euthanasia. The point of this study is to administer and evaluate the effects of human medication of Canine Dementia in hopes to provide a plausible treatment method and will utilize elderly dogs over the age of 8years old and previously diagnosed with some form of canine dementia disorder. The Pugliese study (2007) took this parallel between the brains of humans and dogs to study the degenerative effects of Alzheimer’s.
