Hannah the Pet Society Euthanized Adoptable Dogs
The former owner of an 11-month-old puppy named Kelso leased from Hannah the Pet Society confirmed the puppy was not aggressive and is “shocked” to learn he was euthanized.
Last month I reported that Hannah euthanized three adoptable puppies, one of which was Kelso.
After learning the puppy she returned was one of the three dogs that Hannah killed, she posted this statement on Facebook:
Ironically, Hannah still makes money on the dead puppy.
Ms. Harris-Gomez sends it $100 per month to pay the $600 fee Hannah charged her for returning the dog.
Records Don’t Show Dogs Were Aggressive
In a statement to KGW-TV, Hannah the Pet Society spokeswoman Kara Hansen said the company euthanized the dogs due to multiple documented instances of aggressive behavior, including biting.
The company stands by the decision to put them to sleep rather than return them to a shelter, where they could face years of re-adoption and return and could hurt people.”
However, as I reported, nothing in Hannah’s records I have seen indicated that dogs had aggression problems.
Kelso’s medical records show that his adopters returned him the first time because they couldn’t afford the payments. He also chewed on various items excessively and peed in the house.
The family did note on the return form that Kelso had “Zero bites” and was “highly friendly to new people, and children.” The report also notes “Member recommends rehoming” and “member states “very lovable.”
Kelso’s records also confirm his second owner returned the puppy because “the other dog in the house didn’t accept him.”
The records also show Ms. Harris-Gomez said Kelso was a “Wonderful dog” and his issues could be fixed “with proper training.”
Many thanks to Ms. Harris-G0mez for coming forward and sharing Kelso’s real story.
