Turn down any increase.
Euthanizing costs less than any other process at the shelter. Less than health care, feeding, housing, neutering or spaying.
Annimals that arrive at the shelter are unwanted by their former owners. Not likely to be adopted.
How much of the budget is for Vet services for animals they know are not adoptable?
They resist euthanizing because it would reduce the cost of the shelter.
Vet services, feeding and housing unwanted animals is job security.
