The secret is no kill shelters have an out if a dog can’t be saved.  If there is an incurable disease or illness they can put the dog down, just as a vet would with a pet.  Rescues try not to take dogs with bite histories but if they get a shelter dog and find they can’t handle it, they are not going adopt it out.  They have vets on call who euthanize dogs they can’t keep and can’t place.  If you ask, they will say they don’t but a rescue volunteer told me it happens.
