No Kill shelters do not put pets down that are surrenders if they are adoptable. First, attempting to keep pets with their owners, they try to find out why they’re being surrendered to see if they can help with training, advice, etc. Next, if the owner is requesting euthanasia and the pet is healthy and adoptable, the NK shelter will ask them to sign the pet over to them for re-homing. Euthanasia is truly euthanasia to NK shelters…the last resort – to be put down humanely only when there is truly no hope for recovery, survival, or irreversible suffering is evident, or the pet is irremediably aggressive – criteria followed as set forth in the Eleven Step Equation by the No Kill Advocacy Center.
