Did you know?


Animals in our care are never euthanized due to lack of space or because they take too long to be adopted. Dogs are only euthanized if they are suffering from distress that can not be treated by a veterinarian, or if their aggressive behaviour is a threat to public safety.

Cats are only euthanized if they are in critical distress that cannot be treated by a veterinarian.
