Can a Vet adopt out my dog who was to be euthanized?Q:
My 14 year old dog was suffering from old age and hip dysplasia. I paid for my dog to be put to sleep and two years later found out that my dog was adopted out. Is this legal?A:
There would be a breach of contract if there was an agreement guaranteeing euthanasia and euthanasia was not done. However, I have seen many agreements which acknowledge that the animal may be euthanized, but leave the ultimate decision to the animal shelter or veterinarian.
