Sadly, many of the animals that come to us are in poor condition and some do have to be humanely put to sleep. We generally try to limit euthanasia to animals that are diseased, injured, and/or have uncontrollable or aggressive behaviors. However, during the summer months, when intake is greatest, healthy animals do have to be euthanized.
TLHS doesn’t shy away from this issue. We hope the “reality of it” will drive home the necessity of having your pet spayed or neutered! Please see our Spay/Neuter Clinic page for more information on this topic.
