The Anti-Cruelty Society remains an open-admissions shelter and we accept all animals that we are legally permitted to hold. While The Anti-Cruelty Society energetically promotes the adoption of shelter residents, we believe not all animals are adoptable due to health status, age, or dangerous behavior. Therefore, The Anti-Cruelty Society may administer euthanasia in accordance with an owner’s wish or to prevent further animal suffering. The Anti-Cruelty Society strongly supports the use of the most humane methods available for the intended species. Euthanasia by injection, attended to by trained personnel, is currently recommended for all companion animals and is the only method used by The Anti-Cruelty Society.
