Business euthanizes pets at owners homes


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Sid Korpi is glad that death makes house calls.

When her cat, Giles, approached the end of his life in August, Korpi called on a unique in-home euthanasia service.

Called Minnesota Pets, the St. Paul business does euthanasia — and only euthanasia. It has no clinic to treat animals, just four veterinarians who make about 20 house calls a week, each one ending an animal's life.
