In 2011 a young beagle named Daniel survived an Alabama gas chamber after 17 minutes of carbon monoxide exposure. In October 2012, Pennsylvania joined a growing number of states when they amended their 1983 law governing euthanasia. H.B. 2630 prohibits

Gas Chambers Are the Heartless End for Many Cats and Dogs

Gas Chambers Are the Heartless End for Many Cats and Dogs

Animal shelters kill 3-4 million animals every year, and some of them do it with gas chambers.

That’s right: gas chambers.

Inside the chamber, the pets claw at the walls as their lungs burn and they vomit. Killing a cat or dog this way can take up to 30 minutes (some dogs have survived even past 30 minutes).

Pennsylvania recently became “the twentieth state to ban the use of gas chambers in animal shelters and animal control facilities,” The Sacramento Bee reports. The federal government is also considering a resolution to ban gas chambers, as Alicia Graef reported on Care2. It was referred to committee in the House of Representatives in July.

Lethal injections are believed to cause less suffering to the victims than gas chambers do, which explains the growing movement to outlaw the chambers.

The Association of Shelter Veterinarians (ASV) “believes that the use of carbon monoxide for individual or mass companion animal euthanasia in shelters is unacceptable due to significant humane, operational and safety concerns.” The Association lists a number of reasons gas chambers are inhumane (setting aside the fact that killing innocent, healthy animals is inhumane however it is done).

The National Animal Control Association also “condemns” gas chambers. So does the Humane Society of the United States .

Pennsylvania bans gas chambers at animal shelters
2 years ago

With the looming presidential election, acts of bipartisanship are hard to find. Senators and House members in Pennsylvania, however, agreed that gas chambers should be eliminated from animal control facilities and shelters state wide — in short, no more executing unwanted dogs and cats via exposure to carbon monoxide gas.

So they passed House Bill 2630, which Gov. Tom Corbett (R) signed into law on October 26.

The bill was introduced by Senator Andrew Dinniman (D) of the Keystone State’s Chester County, who was instrumental in guiding it through the Senate. HB 2630 passed the House with help from the influential Representative John Maher (R), who also chairs the Ag Committee.

"Both Senator Dinniman and Representative Maher worked tirelessly to make this a reality," Jodi Goldberg of All Things Pawsible Animal Rescue said. "They deserve the gratitude of every man, woman, and child in Pennsylvania who love animals and want dogs to be treated humanely with respect."

“Near the end of an animal’s life, sometimes the most humane choice for a pet is to end its suffering,” Dinniman said. “When that difficult time comes, Pennsylvanians deserve to be sure that their pet or any pet animal is euthanized as humanely and painlessly as possible and by someone specifically trained to do that difficult task.”

HB 2630 is also known as Daniel’s Law, named after a Beagle who survived a gas chamber execution session in Alabama that was fatal for 16 other dogs. Daniel was adopted by dog trainer and activist Joseph Dwyer in New Jersey.

Unlike lethal injection, euthanasia via carbon monoxide gas chambers has been called an inhumane practice that takes up to 30 minutes. The practice is rife with instances of dogs and cats who have survived the procedure — in some cases multiple times — and later been adopted.

Pennsylvania is the twentieth state to ban gas chambers at animal shelters and animal control facilities; other states with a similar ban include New York, Delaware, and New Jersey.

It appears that the use of carbon monoxide gas chambers used in the euthanasia of domestic animals may soon be a terrible nightmare of the past.

It's Time To End The Use Of Gas Chambers To Kill Animals ! PLEASE SIGN ! !

Cher - 1 hour ago - secure2.convio.net

Three to four million cats and dogs are euthanized in U.S. shelters annually. Regardless of one's position on whether and when shelters should euthanize, there is broad agreement that the gas chamber is cruel, and that lethal injection is more humane.
