They euthanize animals that are considered unadoptable.
When it is necessary, yes. If it were considered inhumane and cruel to keep an animal alive, it would be euthanised. Also, in some places, the SPCA acts in that role when a judicial decision is made to euthanise.
This is mainly for animals which have attacked humans,
have been illegally brought into a country without authority (risk of disease, illegal activity, etc).
Some do, I volunteer at one that does not, we foster our the dogs that take longer to adopt out, such as the large breeds or the older dogs, but ours does not put them down, unless comes in and is such bad medical condition, that the dog would not live anyway, and it has to be really bad, I mean bad, before the vets will put down...they do surgery and do all they can do....
Yes they do ..... although I think that is terrible and all dogs should be given a chance they rescue dogs and cats then they put them to sleep if they feel like nobody would take them .. how do they no if we would take a dog or cat that might be food aggressive or might not like other animals what if you live on 100 acres with no other animals and no small children ? They don't care they put millions of dogs and cats to sleep each year in the US and that is sad...
All shelters euthanize some animals, even no-kill ones. If they won't do it themselves, they send them to a kill shelter.

Does the SPCA euthanize?
There are no renewal fees for micro chips.

If a chip cannot be traced to an owner (as in they never registered it or changed the address when they moved, etc.) then the cat takes its chances the same as any cat without a microchip. All they shelter can do is call the chip registry. If the chip isn't registered, or the owner can't be located, then the chip does no good at all.
It depends on the area of the country they are in.For instance the ones in large cities get a lot of donations,and can keep the animals indefinitely or transfer them to other no-kill shelters.Like the one in New York,on Animal Precinct.I think that they only euthanize the sickest or most vicious animals and they even try their best to save them,even doing expensive surgery on them.But in smaller or poorer counties or cities,they have to euthanize animals,as they don't have the funds to treat the sick ones or train the vicious ones,and sometimes there is no room for more.So,yes,they do euthanize.
You can give us thumbs down,but those kittens will probably be euthanized if there is no room for them. It isn't my fault. I'm just telling you the truth,and so is everyone else.
