At Woodgreen we give homeless and vulnerable pets the greatest chance of a positive future – a second chance at life. We put all the care, training and love into making that a reality. But when we have done all we can to help a pet overcome a serious medical condition, severe behavioural problem, or both, a decision has to be made about putting them to sleep.
This involves our team of experts assessing each pet for quality of life and, for those with behavioural problems, the risk to other pets and people. We have a duty to consider the welfare of every pet in our care. In extreme cases, euthanasia will be considered – and is a decision that is never taken lightly.
