Animal Shelters and Animal Rescue Organizations A recession is officially defined as a period in which there is a decline in real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for two or more consecutive quarters (6 months). In 2009, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) announced that the economic recession of 2007 had officially ended. However, we still have fairly high unemployment at around 9.1 percent (nearly double the historical national average of the United States) and many people have had their hours reduced, their pay cut, or are suffering from other economic hardships. An unfortunate consequence of this is that there have been significant increases in the number of pets being abandoned or neglected due to the financial inability of people to take care of them and animal shelters have become more crowded at a time in which their funding is being cut. Several shelters in and around Tallahassee are currently over-crowded and are in desperate need of assistance. Listed below is the contact information for some of these organizations: Animal Service Center 1125 Easterwood Drive Tallahassee, FL 32311 Office Phone: 850-891-2950 Website: http://www.talgov.com/animals/ Last Hope Rescue P.O.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
