End of Life Services

Owner requested euthanasia is performed anytime we are open.  The fee is $50.00. If an owner wants to be present with their pet during the sedation process, it must be done between the hours of 1pm-5pm Monday thru Friday.

Young-Williams Animal Center reserves the right to refuse a euthanasia request if the animal is deemed healthy and/or behaviorally sound.


The loss of a pet can be a devastating experience for the whole family.
