Why the Humane Society here is not very humane

Siouxland Paw Prints Rescue to the Rescue....
The story is that an elderly woman, who has to go live in an assisted living facility, took her 10 year old dog to the Humane Society. She was told that they do not take elderly dogs and she was to pay $55 for them to euthanize it. Of course, she freaked out.
Thankfully, thankfully, thankfully, she did not decide to have the dog euthanized (I guess they consider that to be humane????) and took it to the local Animal Control. Animal Control called Paw Prints and guess what.....the dog is in a foster home and will be adopted out to a loving forever home.
I certainly do not want to bash another business, but goodness people, you don't go around euthanizing dogs because they're too old. Don't call yourself the Humane Society if you do that because I'm guessing 99% of the population DO NOT THINK IT IS HUMANE!
ANimal Control of Sioux City and Siouxland Paw Prints Rescue saved a life today, plus they made it a little easier for a woman going through a huge transition in her life.
I will post more about this dog when I get info.
