Arizona Clinic Won't Take Credit Cards Over The Phone, Euthanizes Cat Instead

An Arizona man didn't have the $400 for his injured cat's vet care, and the Humane Society clinic he visited wouldn't take his mother's credit card information over the phone or wait for . So he did what he thought was the best thing for 9-month-old Scruffy: surrender ownership to the organization so she would receive treatment. He was told that he could adopt her back later on. A lack of resources meant that Scruffy, whose injuries were not life-threatening, was euthanized instead.

This just pisses me off. What else can be said about it? I donate health care to people all the time that cannot afford treatment. Maybe I'll just take them out back know. End of story. The Humane Society should be very ashamed.
