HSUS-Approved Euthanasia Instructors

As a movement, we are now, thankfully, closer than ever to the day when euthanasia will be reserved only for animals who are suffering or are too aggressive to safely reside in our communities. Although The HSUS does not provide direct euthanasia training, we do believe that when the difficult decision is made that euthanasia is the only option, it is critical to ensure it is performed as humanely as possible. The following individuals have been licensed to use the HSUS course curriculum on performing humane euthanasia, based on the HSUS’ Euthanasia Reference Manual. You can engage one of these instructors to host a training at your facility, or view a calendar of current trainings being taught by one of these instructors.
