this story has me a little confused.

on one hand they say adoptions are up for december 06 compared to 05.
then they say that they changed the policy of not permitting december adoptions.so how can they compare #s with 05:confused:

"The SPCA reversed its longstanding policy of not permitting Christmastime adoptions because American animal rights organizations showed pets given as gifts were less likely to be returned."

That was at the bottom of the article. That means they allowed adoptions in December ? Even so, they shoudln't be too thrilled yet, some of these pets might get back to the spca,pounds,shelters,rescues in a couple of month. :mad:
