I hate to tell you, but pretty much all shelters euthanize their animals after a certain amount of time (usually a couple of weeks, if that). And euthanization isn't by gas, it's by an injection. It's very humane, but I do agree that it's horrible to do to a completely healthy animal...

It's really sad for them to be given to a shelter only to have that happen to them. I don't think a lot of people realise this goes on, but it's fairly commonplace. Still, you don't expect an animal shelter to put down healthy animals.

I wish people would get their pets neutered... so there weren't all these kittens being given to the shelters in the first place. Most of them are unwanted litters because people won't pay for the operation.

There's not a lot most of us can do, unfortunately, only look after our own pets best we can and be responsible pet owners. I have a 14 year old (approx) cat myself, and always made sure she got her injections and all.

Perhaps it's better for these kittens to be euthanised then to be given to unfit homes in haste. Sad though it may be :/
