Specialized ProfessionI work at a high volume animal shelter and for years was one of the main euthanasia techs at the facility. I've put down probably over 1000 animals for a wide array of reasons-AMA

Yep, so Im the one that does the job most people can't fathom. I can also answer any questions anyone has about the inner workings of animal care and shelter life. We save animals and sometimes we have to put them down. It can be some of the most rewarding work and the toughest, most emotionally taxing. The PTSD is real. Ask away!
I don't know if you'd be comfortable with it, but you can find a vet to do a house call. I know that my mom had our old dog put to sleep in our living room on his bed. I think it was nice for him.
Well, first off I would ask how you're going to do it. I know around my area there are veterinarians who will come to your home and perform the service right in your living room. Maybe contact some local vets in your area and see if they can meet you there?
Other than that, spoil your puppers rotten. Any and all food or treats they love, lots of belly rubs and attention. Of course, I'm sure you're going to do that anyway. I guess I would need a little more information as to what exactly your thinking of doing. That way I have more information and could recommend meds or tranqs that would help.
Why do people collect feral cats? They seem to do as well as many wild animals, and it's not like we're going to eliminate the feral cat population
The best thing to do with a feral population is trap neuter and release them back. That way the feral colony can naturally die out. Feral colonies can rapidly overpopulate, carry diseases, and overall health can be poor causing unneeded suffering for the animals.
