PETITION TO CONGRESS: NO GAS CHAMBERS FOR STRAY DOGS & CATS!
Shirley- 3 hours ago - petition2congress.com
Signed - how can people do this to defenceless animals whose lives have already been blighted by humans.
this is way past animal cruelty. this is sadistic, cold-hearted torture, forcing these poor babies to die a slow, agonizing death, just like hitler wanted it for the jewish people. revolting!
Thanks Monika, most signed.
Agree with you Naomi
those nazis need to be gassed to death. what a horrific way to die. signed.
thank you for this, monika. signed!!!!
Thank you Monika
All signed! Many thanks. Hugs.
I also do not understand Jan. And , whichever way you look at it , the one who has introduced it in the US can only have copied it from WW2 , before it did not exist , anywhere. I would like to know since when they use it. I saw in 1998 on internet sites that one could buy a gas chamber for animals just as easy as a pets-toy , in the same internet stores . I didn't know on that time of the US practice and I was so naive to think it was a gas furnace for cremating of dead animals.

the nazi days are over. this form of torture preceded by death is ghastly. we must stop this now! thank you, monika.
Signed with sadness in my heart.
Signed - I just do not understand why a supposedly civilised country uses these gas chambers.How on earth is it legal? Monstrous acts by monstrous animal haters.
I did see the video, no matter if it is good or bad I tear up. The hatred one has to even put a defensless animal to death makes me want to go balistic on someone.

The US should be ashamed that they use gas-chambers for animals. Gas chambers =WW2 , and it has had to be stopped after we discovered what was happened there.
And every vet that use only a heart-stick to kill an animal is an animal abuser of the first degree ! !
Better was, of course , not to kill animals in shelters but , re-home them !!!
Animal shelters kill 3-4 million animals every year, and some of them do it with gas chambers.
That’s right: gas chambers.
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).

ACTION ALERT - XXURGENT - RE: END GAS CHAMBER IN ALTUS OKLAHOMA
- Forwarded Message -----
>From: karen guzman

>Subject: END GAS CHAMBER IN ALTUS OKLAHOMA
>PLEASE SEND THIS SAMPLE LETTER OR LETTER IN YOUR OWN WORDS TO THE MAYOR AND THE CITY OF ALTUS OKLAHOMA WHO IS MEETING TOMORROW NIGHT TO DECIDE ON THE CONTINUED USE OF THEIR GAS CHAMBERS AND PLEASE FORWARD THANK YOU PLEASE CROSSPOST EVERYWHERE, TWITTER AND YAHOO GROUPS, LETS GET THOSE EMAILS GOING TO THE MAYOR AND THE CITY
>SEND TO: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org
>Mayor David Webb and City of Altus:
>It has come to the attention of the animal welfare community that a demonstration was recently held to assist you and the council in making a determination about discontinuing the use of the gas chamber to euthanize unwanted companion animals that are either not claimed or are sickly or not deemed appropriate for adoption. It is also our understanding that the animals disposed of for this demonstration were sedated and that a higher concentration of gas was used and that the demonstration did not show the actual distress that the animals suffer in this type of euthanasia. Sadly, it is my understanding that several of the dogs used in the demonstration had either been spoken for by rescue organizations or had rescues working on finding placement for them. So hopefully, their unnecessary deaths will result in some good by a decision by your community to end this inhumane practice.
>Many people think that animals quietly go to sleep and die in shelter gas chambers. But the reality is it’s a horrific and cruel method of euthanasia. The animals are placed in a warm or hot box without sedation. They have no idea what is happening to them and are terrified. The hiss of gas starts and they get dizzy and panic. The 25 or more minutes it takes to end their lives can be complete torture.
>Historically, this inhumane method of killing was used by the Nazis, and to this day is not allowed even for the punishment of our most severe serial killers.
>What Animal Organizations Say About Gassing ?
>American Humane Association has stated, …euthanizing shelter animals by carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide is inhumane to the animal and harmful to humans. American Humane Association considers euthanasia by injection (EBI) to be the only acceptable and humane means of euthanasia for all shelter animals. Source: www.americanhumane.org/animals/stop-animal-abuse/advocacy/campaigns/stop-gassing-campaign.html
>The Humane Society of the United States stated, Carbon monoxide (CO) gas is, without question, an unacceptable method of euthanasia in states where shelters can legally obtain and administer sodium pentobarbital. Source: www.animalsheltering.org/resource_library/policies_and_guidelines/statement_on_euthanasia.html
>The Association of Shelter Veterinarians has stated, ...the use of carbon monoxide for individual or mass companion animal euthanasia in shelters is unacceptable due to significant humane, operational and safety concerns. Please read their document available online at: www.sheltervet.org/associations/4853/files/CO%20Position%20Statement.pdf
>This outdated and cruel practice needs to stop. Please put an end to the gas chamber at the Altus, Oklahoma and use only humane methods if absolutely necessary.
>Also, consider implementing no-kill by working on spay/neuter, educating the public on responsible pet ownership, and proving low-cost vetting and food assistance for those in need, so it will be easier for owners to keep their pets.
