That's pretty sad. The clinic I worked for didn't WANT that kind of business and had no problem turning away people who wanted to euthanize healthy animals. As a receptionist there, I had quite a few really po-ed people screaming at me and threatening me because I told them "no". Tough patootie.

Oh man I didn't even know you could do that.

I know atleast my vets office would NEVER do that. They'd probably tell you off if you even asked.

But thinking about it my old vets office would probably do it if you asked... it was bought out by some corporation who's main goal is money and not helping animals.

But yeah that's insane and I've never ever heard of it happening around here. Our shelters around here don't even really put down sick animals because they are sick or healthy animals because they are full.

Craziness!!!
