A #Florida animal shelter is under fire after an audit revealed it was engaging in non-standard euthanasia procedures and conducting bizarre behavioral tests among the animals.

“During the test, the dog attacked a cat and caused such harm that the cat had to be euthanized,” the audit of #Brevard County Animal Services reads, according to WKMG-TV. ”The dog was then euthanized on account of its own behavior.”

DRACO IS LOCATED IN #LACEY  *#WASHINGTON*. DESPERATELY NEEDS A HOME ASAP! OWNER HAS SCHEDULED APP'T @ VET TO EUTH HIM JUNE 8th. (see 2 pics)

Draco is 3 yrs old, 90 lbs, neutered, up to date on shots, house trained & crate trained, he loves his crate. He likes to ride in the car, he LOVES the water (beach, lake & pond). Draco sleeps in the same bed as the cat, he likes other dogs and sometimes he just wants to be left alone by other dogs. 

The owner said "Today he bit my mom on the hand It was her fault because she stuck her hand in his kennel when he had hidden food he stole from the kitchen in there. I wasn't home at the time. She lives with us. He scratched my oldest son on the arm a few weeks ago when Draco was chewing his bone. My son grabbed the bone and that's when Draco scratched him on his arm, no puncture wound or anything serious . Draco is stressed and doesn't get the exercise he needs, we lost our house with a yard and have all been stuck in a home and yard too small for all of us. I just went back to work so he is in his kennel now a lot more during the day. I would drive Draco anywhere and PAY any and all of his expenses, buy him food every month, pay for his vet bills, if there was anyone who would take him". If you can save Draco, CONTACT: catahoulas4@yahoo.com

KNOW your #zoonotic s

... "We know we have Chagas disease in Texas, and Texas is emerging as a hot spot," said Dr. Sarah Hamer, assistant professor and associate wildlife biologist with Texas A&M University's College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. "There is a growing crisis of canine Chagas in Texas." ... Chagas disease is hardly an unknown malady. The disease long has been a major human health issue in Mexico, Central and South America, where it is estimated to infect as many as 8 million people and annually cause as many 25,000 human deaths.

  #LEXINGTON  *#NorthCarolina*  – Days after watching the euthanization process of animals at the Davidson County Animal Shelter, Davidson County Commissioners voted Tuesday to continue allowing use of the #GasChamber  

Watching a demonstration of animals being euthanized, hundreds of residents spoke out against it.

"This situation with this gassing, is so archaic," said one resident. "I'm really, I'm enraged that people would still use such a method."

"Lethal injection is a much quicker and peaceful death, and I have unfortunately witnessed it being performed on a few of my beloved pets," said another resident.

Commission also decided to have the sheriff monitor the usage of the gas chamber more closely.
