Default Stop euthanization

I think they should stop it. I mean they would not kill a person like that.

In addition, an animal is a life. Some humans think wrong to me its ok when it is not a human. However, it is wrong to kill but you are still killing a life forum.

Stop Euthanization


Some articles I found in a yahoo seach

it's definitely not a good thing to euthanize so many pets, but it's not like you can just make a decision to stop it and it will stop.

pet overpopulation has to be addressed from the bottom where it is happening - stop people from dumping their unwanted pets for any stupid reason, educate people about how important it is to not produce accidental litters or let their pet have "just one litter" because baby animals are so cute, make them understand how important it is to not buy any pets from pet shops but from knowledgeable, reputable breeders. once people realize that pets are not a disposable commodity, "getting rid" of animals is less likely to happen.

as it is, shelters can't just stop euthanizing animals. how would they make room for the hundreds of new ones coming in every single day?

get your dog spayed or neuered. Don't breed.... I saw a post earlier, 2 days ago, until there is no need for shelters, then breed again. I wish their was a licence to breed. there is way too many pets out their, purebred and mutts, cats that need homes now.

i agree with mordy - euthanasia at this point is a sad fact of life.

first, it is a humane gift we offer sometimes - sometimes an animal is so sick, suffering, miserable, that humane euthanasia is the best thing we can offer.

in shelters, it's simply horriblel that we have to do it, but really there is no other option at this point. our resources at shelters are very limited and there is no possible way that the shelter and rescue system care for and financially handle, all the dogs that are in need of homes.

so the change needs to come from elsewhere - from outside the shelter/rescue system. they do their best to clean up after other peoples messes, so i dont think its fair to complain about them when they do their best. the change needs to come from people, who stop breeding irresponsible, who step up and take responsibility in their pet ownership and understand this simple fact:

pets are not disposable. love an animal its *WHOLE* life.

I agree with Mordy, but I'd rather see a dog be euthanized than spending the rest of his life in a cage honestly. It's more humane.

i would agree with all of them..yes euthanizia is a fact of life... if we had an agressive dog attack you or your child you wouldnt want the dog to do it to another person... or if the dog is terminally ill should it be allow to suffer...... NO!!!

I know about this dog who was so old that it reacted poorly (showed aggression toward people -- even her handler) and she was suffering so bad about her illness. The only choice for her handler at that time was to put her to sleep. What do you think? Is it better for her?
