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.
