Animal Shelters sometimes euthanize animals but not always, they are generally a lot smaller than a sanctuary and are not able to keep animals forever. An Animal rescue will adopt, rehabilitate and adopt out for a fee. Animal Sanctuaries often have disabled pets, pets with FIV/Feline Leukaemia, animals with neurological problems and really old animals that would otherwise be euthanized in an animal shelter. The animals go to sanctuaries to live out the rest of their lives. Sanctuaries normally have mainly “unadoptable” animals, like animals that were abused and might bite you, untrainable, etc.
