What is TLHS euthanasia policy?
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 put down. TLHS doesn't shy away from this issue. We hope the "reality of it" will drive home the point of having your pet spayed or neutered!!

In addition to our spay clinic work, we also work with several rescue organizations and have started an Adoption Ambassador
program to help more dogs find homes. This in turn reduces the number of euthanasia's. We encourage anyone that is interested in supporting these programs to please contact us!
