Does “Longtimer” mean the animal will be euthanized soon?

No! “Longtimer” means the animal has been on the adoption floor for several weeks and it’s time for the animal to go to its furrever home. In keeping with our philosophy that no pet belongs in the pound, we use the “Longtimer” status to draw attention to these animals. We also make the animals available to approved rescues, which provides yet another opportunity to find a lasting home. From a business perspective, by the time an animal reaches the adoption floor, we have invested quite a bit of time, money and supplies, so it would be financially detrimental to euthanize an adoptable animal.
