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.
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 -----

>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.
