While the HSUS works to end the euthanasia of all healthy, adoptable animals, they maintain that when euthanasia has to be performed, it is done as humanely as possible.
The Bennettsville animal shelter will begin using the more humane means of euthanasia, the injection method. The HSUS funds will be used to purchase injection equipment and supplies, and for training staff members.
Bennettsville Chief of Police Larry McNeil said: “We appreciate The Humane Society of the United States’ assistance in helping our city become better equipped to perform euthanasia more humanely. We’re proud to implement improved standards of care for our animals, and hope we can prevent more euthanasia by funding spay/neuter surgeries with the help of the grant money.”

JJ loves people, kids, cats and other dogs. This sweet dog lost an eye and had a broken leg after being hit by a car and left lying on the side of the road.
