The RSPCA in Tasmania says its animal euthanasia rates have decreased by more than 20 per cent in the three months to September.
The animal welfare organisation says it euthanased about 250 animals during this period, 80 animals fewer than the same time last year.
CEO Michael Linke says the adoption rate has doubled with nearly 200 more animals finding new homes in the last quarter.
“It’s a fantastic result and we’ve got lots of capacity in our shelters and the staff are doing a wonderful job communicating with people to visit our shelters and to find homes for these animals,” he said.
