Pets deserve long, comfortable, happy lives. However, a time comes when you face a difficult decision: to have your pet humanely euthanized because of health or behavioral issues.
If your pet is sick or injured, consult your veterinarian for advice. If your pet can no longer experience the things it once enjoyed, cannot respond to you in its usual ways, or appears to be experiencing more pain than pleasure, you may need to consider euthanasia. Likewise, if your pet is terminally ill or critically injured, or if the financial or emotional cost of treatment is beyond your means, euthanasia may be a valid option.
The Florida Keys SPCA believes that euthanasia should take place at your veterinarian’s office where you can be present with your pet. Please make every effort to coordinate this service with your veterinarian first. If you are in an emergency situation and your veterinarian cannot accommodate your pet please contact us directly.
