Departing Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards posted a tweet in support of adopting pets from a rescue shelter over purchasing one from a pet store where more animals are euthanized: Using the hashtag #AdoptDontShop, Richards simultaneously promoted her new book, a memoir titled Make Trouble, as she prepares to end her tenure leading the nation’s largest abortion chain. “Heading out on book tour for TWO WEEKS!,” she tweeted. “Going to miss this guy though Garfield, not so much,” she said about her Dachshund and his toy.

There is no right answer but by working through some questions you can work out what quality of life your pet has and this can help you decide if putting your pet to sleep is the right option at this time.
These simple questions include: is your dog in pain? Can your cat climb or jump, is your pet able to run and are they active.
