Are there circumstances when you do euthanize?
Euthanasia: The act or practice of painlessly ending the life of an animal that has a terminal illness, injury or incurable condition, as by giving a lethal drug.
No-Kill Shelter -is an organization that only euthanizes animals for the above reasons and has the goal of adoption for every animal in its care.
Animal Sanctuary - A sanctuary's goal is to provide life long care to the animals in its care. Some view this as a place that animals will go to live out the rest of their lives or a hospice for animals.
Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary is a no-kill shelter with the goal of adoption for every animal. Therefore, we do not allow animals into our shelter that can not be safely adopted such as feral (wild) cats. However, there are other organizations that specialize in these cases and we will be happy to talk with you about your options.
Special Cases in which Miss Kitty's Feline Sanctuary will euthanize:
Terminal Illness: Examples would be kidney failure or any other illness that will result in slow painful death for an animal.
Injury: Minor injuries such as a broken leg or something that can be corrected with routine surgery are not reason for euthanasia. However, major injures such as internal damage due to being hit by a car are.
Incurable condition: An illness or condition that results in a poor quality of life. Example would be uncontrollable diabetes, or any other condition deemed untreatable with normal medical care by our medical staff.
Later Stages of Heart Worms: Factors such as the cat’s strength, age, and other physical conditions as well as the aggressiveness of the illness will be considered in the final decision.
