Earlier this year, 西雅图DogSpotbroke the story that 汉娜 euthanized 3 adoptable dogs 而不是将它们提供给他们来自的庇护所，或者提供他们需要被采用的照料/支持。
如果你没有’t heard of 汉娜 the Pet Society, it was founded in 2010 as a pet leasing company. Here’原始模型的工作方式：
汉娜 used its pet matching service to find a pet for you based 上 the information you provided.
Once you selected your pet, you signed a contract saying you would pay 汉娜 a monthly fee for the duration of the animal’s life. It also 说 汉娜 retains ownership of it.
In exchange for the fee, 汉娜 provided all veterinary care, food and supplies, and training/ongoing support.
汉娜 the Pet Society Stops Leasing Animals
汉娜 announced in April 它将不再采购宠物并将其与家人同住。 它仍然向参加该计划的任何人按月提供医疗，食品/用品，培训/支持，并收取月费。
更重要的是， pet owners must still transfer ownership of their pets to 汉娜 才可以注册该程序。
汉娜 is still the ultimate arbiter 关于他们的狗’ medical treatment.
In their interviews with KGW, the former 汉娜 employees said the company:
Some of the employees told KGW that 汉娜 often kept dogs in unsanitary conditions and confined them for long periods of time. They believe 肮脏的环境导致至少23只幼犬死亡 来自高度传染性胃肠病毒，称为细小病毒。可以用疫苗预防这种病毒，但是前雇员说这些幼犬当时没有’t always vaccinated.
I also contend that 汉娜’宠物租用模式本质上是有缺陷的。它的主要功能是赚钱。的 狗只不过是存货的一部分，需要经过成本/收益分析来确定它们的获利能力。
伙伴’s Sad Story
那’s what appears to have occurred with 伙伴, the Boston Terrier KGW highlighted in its story. Here’简要总结了他们的报告：
7月5日– 汉娜 diagnosed 伙伴 with a tumor about the size of a golf ball 上 his prostate. An ultrasound couldn’不能确定是否有癌变。
7月8日– 汉娜 said the first ultrasound was inconclusive and 直到7月18日，才有资格运行超声仪的唯一人员。
7月11日– 伙伴 was shaking and couldn’t urinate. His owner took him to 汉娜 but staff told the dog was “just nervous.”
They sent 伙伴 home but that night, he got even worse.
His family called 汉娜’s 24-hour hotline to report 伙伴’状况，但工作人员告诉他们“这不是紧急情况。”
They then took 伙伴 to an ER where vets说他需要紧急导管插入术。” 汉娜’s response? ‘Take as much urine out of him as you can with a needle and bring him into 汉娜 at 9 a.m.”
The vet treating 伙伴 said, “那’s not the standard of care I would recommend.”
汉娜 eventually authorized the procedure and told the family to bring 伙伴 back in the morning. Instead, they took him to another emergency vet who performed an ultrasound immediately and discovered 伙伴 had inoperable cancer.
伙伴’s family decided to euthanize him rather than take him back to 汉娜 again.
“汉娜 definitely gave us poor veterinary care. We should have known he had prostate cancer earlier. He should have received treatment earlier,” 上e of 伙伴’s owners told KGW. “他的结局涉及很多痛苦，不需要痛苦。”
伙伴’s family has little legal recourse against 汉娜 because 公司是狗’s legal owner.
汉娜 issued a statement regarding KGW’的报告称它为 “实际上不准确。”
I might believe that if 上ly a few people filed complaints regarding how 汉娜 treats its pets.
但是我认为 投诉的数量和相似性 about 汉娜’的业务实践表明该公司已参展 常规的行为模式 指示 it’更关注其底线而不是动物的福利。
