I tried calling today,but no answer,will call again tomorrow.
This from my article on this yesterday.......

Animal advocates started a petition to discontinue gassing at the facility which received 7,000 signatures, but the Commissioners shut off their email accounts because they were “tired of receiving the messages.” The only way to contact Commissioners and voice concern is by phone: 740-652-7090 / 614-322-5260, FAX: 740-687-6048 or mail: 210 East Main Street. Room 301 — Lancaster, Ohio 43130

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma

Petition signed, thanks for posting Cher! Horrendous, another sad, sad story! Isn't it enough that these poor dogs are ending their lives through no fault of their own without these hideous murderers showing no compassion to make sure that they are dead before being burnt alive, it's the least they can do to make sure they are dead - my god it makes me sick to my stomach! What has man become, I am so ashamed! It is us "mankind" who has created this "throw away" society and it's now these poor unwanted, unloved innocent creatures who are paying the price with their lives in such unspeakable horrific deaths. If only we took charged and neutered our animals then maybe there wouldn't be so many unwanted animals being destroyed! Also maybe this would help cut down on animal abuse and have a "knock on" affect in other animal cruelty/greed - who knows but something has to be done somewhere as animals cannot keep suffering because of us! It's so heartbreaking day after day to keep reading on Care2 about unspeakable cruelty towards animals - these are dumb animals who cannot speak out, so it is up to the rest of us to help them and to protect them before it too late - keep signing, in the end we will make a difference!

Absolutely disgusting and sickening. These most despicable people are not fit to be called 'human' and I sincerely hope and pray that they get their just deserts, whether by fair means or foul. How can anyone be so heartless, so cruel, so sadistic, so barbaric, so soul-less to murder dogs and cats in such an inhumane way. Its tragic that these poor, innocent animals have to be killed without suffering the most brutal method of killing at the hands of these evil, sick monsters. Long may they suffer and rot in hell.

Hi ! I know you two have called, but I wanted to report that I was told that there would be no euthanization until a decision was made in two weeks. The assistant I spoke to at the 614-322-5260 number was particularly sympathetic and supportive (more so than the other number) and said she believed they would make the decision to ban gas chambers in Fairfield County in two weeks. I hope I am not being naive ! Thank you both for posting and encouraging people to call - I am so grateful I called ! And hope this is true !

What kind of person would actually want to place innocent dogs and puppies in a gas chamber,a cold heart person with no heart,i would rather sweep the streets!!!!!!! I pray this will be banned for always,even better spay/neuter our dogs and cats and then hopefully there would be no need to kill any dogs and cats,when will humans ever learn,its the poor animals who always pay with their lifes because of selfish humans!!!!

Kathy C - thank you for sending me this alert and making me aware of this. I have called both numbers and so far today, I got very positive feed back. The question is do we have any one from Care2 that lives in or near Fairfield County, Ohio? If so is it possible that you could attend the County Commissioners meeting and write to local papers?

I will be sending an abbreviated version of this out to the local newspapers as well. In my past experience local papers have a limit of 150-250 words.
