Animal Shelter


Nancy Ryan, Shelter Supervisor for the New Hanover County Animal Control Services, poses in a portrait reflected in the window of a gas chamber used to euthanize dangerous animals on Tuesday, July 17, 2007. Ryan only uses the chamber for animals that pose a danger to the workers performing the process, saying, "The chamber's kind of a scary looking thing. My staff prefers to hold the animal, to talk to it, give it one last pet."
