    Charles Henderson Animal Rescue is a limited admission shelter which takes in only as many animals as we can comfortably, humanely care for. 

    As a result, Charles Henderson Animal Rescue does not euthanize animals for lack of space.

    Charles Henderson Animal Rescue does not support euthanasia as the predominant means of managing the pet overpopulation problem. 

    Charles Henderson Animal Rescue considers euthanasia as a last resort used only in extreme cases. 

    Charles Henderson Animal Rescue makes every effort to place each of our shelter animals in a safe, responsible home. 

    In a small percentage of cases, this may not be possible due to severe medical conditions that cause the animal to suffer, or due to extreme aggression that poses a danger to the community and the animal's quality of life. 

    In these very rare instances, humane euthanasia is carefully weighed and considered, and when it is absolutely necessary that an animal be euthanized, the euthanasia is done painlessly and humanely so as to prevent the animal from suffering.

    Fortunately we have not had to euthanize any animals for behavioral or medical issues to date.
