Euthanasia rates for animals taken in by Kern County Animal Services have dropped dramatically in the past eight years. In 2010, the county euthanized about 75 percent of animals that came into its shelters. Nowadays, the county finds live solutions for 75 percent of the animals that come through its doors. “It’s been a long road,” said KCAS Director Nick Cullen. “But we’ve made a lot of progress.”
