No Kill Shelter About To Euthanize Dogs, Even Offering Free Adoptions

A no-kill animal shelter in Bald Knob, Arkansas has put out an emergency S.O.S. to its community. They are over capacity with animals and if people do not start volunteering to foster or adopt the animals, they may resort to euthanizing them.

The Bald Knob Animal Shelter posted this message to its Facebook page recently, “It’s with a heavy heart for me to let everyone know that we will begin taking the ones who have been here the longest to the vet and having them euthanized if we cannot get them adopted or committed to a rescue.”

A total of 35 dogs, with nine of them being puppies, currently call the shelter their home, and things have to change right away or some animals will pay with their lives.

At a council meeting, Mayor Barth Grayson says an ordinance was put in place in 1999 that allows them to euthanize animals at the shelter after 10 days. Some of the animals have been living there for over a year, which means they may be the first to be put down.

“We’ll be reviewing how long we’re going to have to keep them and still operate as a no-kill because I believe that’s what everyone wants,” Grayson shared.
