Mr. and Mrs. Day run the Santa Ana animal shelter—a place that last year euthanized two-thirds of all animals unlucky enough to walk through its doors. The shelter is in the basement of the Days' for-profit Grand Avenue Animal Hospital in Santa Ana. Basically, it's a cut-rate execution center for stray pets. Responding to shelter critics in August, the city put the poorly funded shelter contract out to bid. But because the Days were the only bidders, they're still running the shelter. MITIGATING FACTOR: The city of Santa Ana gets what it pays for.
