Many veterinary practices help the local humane organization or county impound facility by acting as consultants. It is considered a violation of the Controlled Substances Act for a registered practitioner to order or transfer euthanasia solution to an impound facility for their exclusive use. Recently, the DEA has started issuing permits to these facilities (if they qualify as a legitimate impound facility) so that they can procure their own supply. The DEA has done this because of severe problems with security and record keeping at these facilities, as well as the liability that is placed on the veterinarian. If the impound facility is unable to obtain a DEA permit of their own, then the veterinarian could agree to euthanasia (or supervise the euthanasia) of animals with drugs from his or her supply on a case-by-case basis; in no circumstances should controlled substances be "issued" to another facility that is not properly licensed to possess them.
