Owner Requested Euthanasia
Mesa County Animal Services is aware that one of the hardest decisions an owner makes is to euthanize their pet. Your veterinarian, family and friends can help you make the right decision. Consider not only what is best for you and your family, but also what is best for your pet. We understand this difficult decision is a final act of kindness to your pet.
We provide a compassionate and caring euthanasia service for Mesa County citizens and their pets. Our officers are certified in euthanasia through the American Humane Society. Euthanasia is a humane procedure that will be carried out with compassion and respect.
We cannot allow you to be present at the euthanasia, you may request that we hold the remains so that you can make special arrangements. Pet owners who wish to be present for the owner-requested euthanasia procedure should contact a local veterinary clinic.
There is a cost for this procedure.
