About Us

 

Euthanasia Policy General Overview

Committed to ending the unnecessary euthanasia of adoptable animals in San Diego County, the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA takes the decision to euthanize any animal very seriously.

Our commitment to the healthy and treatable animals in our care means that we are willing to pursue all reasonable efforts in order to provide for their well-being.

Euthanasia is not considered for healthy animals that have been relinquished to SDHS or accepted by SDHS from partnering agencies.

Animals that are deemed to pose an unacceptable danger to other animals, themselves or the public are candidates for euthanasia. Animals that are suffering mentally, emotionally or physically may be candidates for euthanasia.
