This just happened to us on Friday that the Golden Valley Humane Society. My cat Rosie was brought in as a stray and when we found her on the website we were beyond happy. My 8yrs daughter had been crying herself to sleep. We handed out over 500 flyers trying to locate her so when I found her we hurried right over to be told we could not take her that night but would have to come back tomorrow. My husband was able to see her and make a positive ID and ask that a ID chip be place in her so that this would never happen again. We were told to come back around 2pm on Friday to pick her up. That was the first night we did not cry worried sick about where she could be or what happened to her. On friday they put her to slepp 1 hour before we were to pick her up. They said it was a error and she was hissing on Thursaday night after my husband had left so they deamed her as a poor temperment and killed her. They said they were sorry and offered us free kittens. They still have not been able to tell us why this happened or how it will be prevented from happening again. This is malpractice and it needs to be stopped. 2 kittens cant fix what has been done, and I am appaled that this has happened two times in a week. I would think that when someone is dealing with the decision to place a animal to sleep there would be check and balances in place to ensure it is the right and proper decision. I am just heart broken...
