Can and should all animals be saved? How and when do you even open a conversation about humane euthanasia? Should alternatives, such as adoption or re-homing, always be considered first? If not, how do you decide? This lecture will take a deep dive into what is often one of the most sensitive of topics for those of us working in animal welfare or medicine. During this lecture, we will look at several case studies and real life examples of things that were or should be considered when dealing with various types of serious behavior concerns. You will walk away from this interactive lecture with the tools you need to help you determine if and when this drastic measure might be the safest and/or most humane option for an animal in your care, rescue, or community.
