More U.S. animal shelter data by city, county, state, and region

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, September 2007:
The printed edition of the table “U.S. animal shelter data
broken down by city, county, state, and region” published on page
19 of the July/August 2007 edition of ANIMAL PEOPLE inadvertently
omitted the portions covering the interior western states, the state
of Delaware, and Huntington Beach, California, and omitted a
decimal place in stating the rate of shelter killing per 1,000 humans
residents of Santa Cruz, California. The missing data, below, was
taken into account in producing the ANIMAL PEOPLE estimate that a low
for the past half century of 3.7 million animals were killed in U.S.
shelters in 2006, and was included in the electronic edition of
ANIMAL PEOPLE.
