Owners must take responsibility for securing solutions for their unwanted companion animals. Possible solutions include: re-homing animals through gift, donation or sale, voluntary relinquishment to rescue facilities, animal control agencies, or shelters. Veterinary involvement or oversight is recommended for any unwanted animal with health or behavioral issues, or when an owner is considering euthanasia.
If an animal cannot be adopted, euthanasia may be appropriate when conducted by qualified personnel, using humane methods that comply with local and state laws.
It’s Not About Politics….It’s About Your Profession. The CVMA PAC is a bipartisan political action committee whose purpose is to educate state legislators and candidates on issues of importance to the veterinary profession.
