In our June 23 article on the Home at Last Humane Society shelter, we stated that the shelter does not euthanize animals. This is not completely accurate. Home at Last representatives pointed out that while it is their mission to place every adoptable animal, some animals are not suitable for adoption.

The only reasons an animal will be euthanized at Home at Last are: Severe aggression towards people or other animals; severe behavior problems they do not have the resources to correct; or an injury or illness that is deemed by a veterinarian to be not treatable or where the animal would not have a normal life free of pain.

The decision to euthanize an animal is made by the Home at Last president, a veterinarian and the shelter manager.
