Yes, the Animal Hospital does humanely euthanise animals for the Town of New Britain. Unfortunatly the majority of these animals are Pit Bulls who through careless breeding and/or mistreatment are extremely aggressive animals. Pit Bulls can be wonderful companions and I know of many that are. it is not a fault of the breed but rather the circumstances of their upbringing (or breeding) that cause extreme aggressive behavior.
Not every dog or cat can be saved. Once a dog is taken into custody by the town that dog belongs to the town. With that ownership comes the legal ramifications if that dog should ever happen to attack.
In addition there is the financial cost to the town of caring for animals indefinately. In a perfect world there would be unlimited resources for care of ALL homeless strays. We all know that is not the case.
The animal hospital does do extensive charity work for local animal rescue groups as well as The Hungerford Nature Center. Each year many stray animals are adopted out by the hospital. You can always stop the hospital to visit the current residents waiting for homes.
As for cost? Prices are comparable to those of other veternary hospitals offering a similar level of care.
Thanks for reading. - Ken Williamson

This VET is Way too expensive and has no compassion for animals. I've also been told that this particular vet euthanizes dogs that arent even sick for the Town of New Britain. Because of this, I will not go there. Perhaps these vets should try doing something nice with their talents and help people with animals or do a spay/neuter clinic!!
