The welfare basis for the euthanasia of dogs and cats and policy development

The ICAM Coalition believes that it is essential that organisations working with animals have fully considered and agreed a policy for the euthanasia of animals in their care so that an informed and supported decision can be made when the time arises.

This guidance aims to help those involved in dog population management programmes to develop a euthanasia policy that is founded on principles of animal welfare and that is suitable for the given situation.
