Dear Sir/Madam,

I am contacting you to request the following information regarding stray dogs.

• How many stray dogs entered pounds between 1st January 2010 and 31st December 2010?
• How many of these were reclaimed by their owners?
• How many were adopted from the pound?
• How many went to an animal rescue?
• How many were euthanized?
• What happened to any remaining dogs that did not fall into above categories?

Yours faithfully,
