Time in Shelter
While it is only a recommendation, the Humane Society of the United States suggests that all pets be held in a shelter for at least five days.
When caught in financial difficulties, many shelters are forced to decrease the time animals have before they are put down. Some money-tight shelters implement 3-day rules, euthanizing the animal on the fourth day of its shelter stay.
No-kill shelters keep animals indefinitely unless they are too ill to be treated or have an overly aggressive nature.
Save a Life
Time is limited for any animal in a shelter, unless the shelter is a no-kill one. If left unadopted, any animal will be put down eventually.
