Euthanasia Policy

Buster’s Brigade is committed to the preservation of life. Our mission is to help families keep their pets in their home. We are a no kill organization. 

Buster’s Brigade believes in healing animals who can be healed and treating behaviors that can be treated. 

It is our policy not to pay, perform or assist with euthanasia for dogs or cats in cases of convenience. We will not pay for euthanasia for a pet due to moving, divorce or death of an owner, unwillingness to care for an elderly pet or special needs pet. 

Humane euthanasia is administered as a last resort for pets when an animal is too ill to recover or too dangerous for rehabilitation.

Medical Euthanasia: Euthanasia is appropriate when a licensed veterinarian has assessed the pet and there is no chance of recovering an acceptable quality of life for that animal. 

Behavioral Euthanasia: Euthanasia is appropriate only in rare cases of irredeemable canine aggression in which a licensed veterinarian has eliminated medical issues, a certified trainer has evaluated the canine and public safety cannot be assured. 

 

All decisions to assist in euthanasia are made by the board of Buster’s Brigade, which includes a licensed veterinarian.
