Township of Montclair Animal Euthanasia Policy
Draft as of 11/21/08

Euthanasia is an unfortunate but sometimes necessary part of animal sheltering.

Dogs that are medically declared incurable or injured and suffering shall be euthanized upon the medical opinion of a veterinarian appointed by the township to render such professional judgments. Dogs that are aggressive or repeat biters and are considered dangerous to other animals or people may be examined by a veterinarian to rule out any medical reason for the aggression.
