    This is what happened that only a few know about. As you know our vet told us King couldnt be cured because his infection was too bad. They refused to remove his teeth and told us that would be cruel. Since we just lost vinny 6 months ago neither of us go watch another loved one die. We brought him back to the shelter to be put down and told the girl what the vet said, infact 2 vets. His teeth were very healthy and it wasnt an option with both Vets.

    I needed closure and was thinking about rayna missing king so i was gonna ask about another cat. Rich called and found out that King is not only alive but eating well again. They told us we couldnt have him back because we didnt pay to get his teeth removed. I told him we were willing but 2 vets said it wasnt right and wouldnt do it and the best thing to do was put him down. We trusted those vets. The thing is its also in their contract that all medical treatment would be done and we would adopt a healthy cat but King had this while in their care so if they would of removed his teeth before adoption none of this would of happened. We only wanted one cat but took 2 because thats whats best for them so why cant they make an exception and give him back. THat is in both cats' best interest and it wasnt our fault. We thought we were doing the right thing.

    Can you please email: This email is not visible to you. CAand ask them to return king to Barbara & Rich's family and that Ive been grieving for weeks. Cat knows this is true, shes been giving me support. If you could take just one minute to do this i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

    Babs, What am I missing here...I'm clearly confused :confused:...I thought you had already lost this pet from this thread here and you had him put down because you said ..."and we had to make that dreadful decision" :confused:

    Thread here...http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/attic/26845-sadnews.html

    Usually when you have to have a pet put down you also have to pay for the service...I've never found anyone that would do it for free ?? :confused:

    I'm even getting more confused now by your two seperate threads here...:confused:

    K Rob( im confused too)

    Rich and I thought King was put down. We didnt stay because we had to put Vinny down from cancer 6 months prior and I just couldnt do it. I trusted they would do it for us. I took King to 2 vets from June until 2 weeks ago spending hundreds of dollars to get him cured of this bad infection. I was told by the vets that his teeth were healthy and they refused to pull all of his teeth espcecially because he was declawed so that would leave him totally defensless. The vet told Rich and I we the best thing to do was to put him down.

    We took him home and tried one more time with the antibiotics and they didnt work. He started to eat and then he would scream in pain. I couldnt take him being in pain and couldnt be selfish to let him stay in pain. I told Rich that I couldnt go through this again. He brought him back to the shelter because they have their own vet and told the lady there the whole story. She said she understood and we did the right thing.

    I had rich call the shelter today to get closure because we didnt witness it and also to see if there was a companion for Rayna because she missed King. The lady at the shelter told him (without even a phone call or email) that the owner of the shelter had all of Kings teeth removed and hes recovering!! I was willing to do that if we HAD to but our two vets told us no, it was inhumane. When we dropped him off we thought they were gonna put him down. If they had called us we would have taken him back or paid for the surgery. Not only that....it states in their contract that ALL pets are checked and have their shots and are healthy. Well, I have proof that King was sick before we even adopted him and if they would taken care of him or atleast told us what was going on this wouldnt have happened in the first place.

    I dont think it was fair for them not too tell us. Its not like he got sick and we just dropped him and fled. We tried for months and spent alot of money and I would of spent more if I knew he could be saved. THey should return him to us and Rayna. This is the first time in my life I ever went through anything like this with a shelter and Ive been to several for rescue in the past

    Thanks for clearing that up Babs, I do hope you can get him back...I didn't realize thought that shelters would put pets down or euthanize them for free though...I just called the vet a few months ago to get a price on having our cocker spaniel put down and they said it would cost us $137.00 but within two more days she passed away anyway...

    So most shelters will euthanize pets for free ??

    THey didnt ask Rich for any money when he dropped him off to get put down. This shelter is different than others. When we adopted the two cats they gave us carriers and offered other stuff. Its connected with one of the best boarding places in the country (hickory springs). When we put Vinny down , it cost $80 for everything, I was surprised when Rich didnt leave a check with them too

    You wont believe this email I got from them. Whoever it was that said they wont take responsibility for adopting out a sick cat was right!! I doubt its because of letters because they said no before they even got any. I offered to pay for the oral surgery , my brother was going to help me. They are punishing those 2 cats for no good reason and its spiteful. Here is the email:

    "You need to stop asking your friends to contact us. We would have considered giving the cat back, but what with the harassment we are experiencing now, any chance of returning King to your home is gone. Please do not contact us again. It is sad that you felt the need to return him when he needed you the most. You're telling us that we placed a sick cat in your care? How fortunate then that you no longer have to deal with his medical problems. This is a written warning."

    Personally, I think the first 2 vets were correct. Even if it meant saving the life of the cat, removing his teeth to do so is inhumane, in my book. Cats don't have the option that us humans do. If we have to lose our teeth, at least we can get dentures. The same thing applies to de-clawing any animal. For whose benefit was it to remove his teeth? Certainly not the cats.

    Was there any guarantee that King would have survived, even after removing his teeth? I seriously doubt it, and if there wasn't any guarantee, then they took the chance of making him suffer more. :mad:

    If I were you, I'd call the SPCA and report this vet. This is clearly a breach of ethics, if not full blown cruelty to animals. If they're doing this for one cat, how many others are they doing it to? At the very least, they should be investigated.
