John Corder, an animal control officer at the animal shelter, says that every other option is considered before euthanization is brought to the table. He said:

We try to do our best to get them up and off the streets. And we get them adopted out pretty regularly. We work with several rescues, we have lots of volunteers that come out and they have their own Facebook pages and stuff. And they assist us in getting the dogs home.
