Danville Area Humane Society Euthanizations Down

Danville, VA - Fewer dogs are being euthanized at the Danville Area Humane Society in the last five years. But they still have high numbers.

In 2013, 78% of the animals received by the shelter were put down. Some were injured or ill and could not be adopted but some were healthy animals. In 2009, 88% of the animals were euthanized.

The Humane Society did not want to comment on the story.
