The Texas State Senate has voted all in favor of banning the use of gas chambers in animal shelters. Many shelters in the state have still been using the chambers to euthanize animals that have little to no chance of being adopted.

Signed. The flip side of the coin is that if the animals are to be killed with intravenous euthanasia solution, the person must be skilled at hitting veins! I have heard stories of a depraved person injecting the dogs in the heart while standing on them to hold them still (thankfully he was caught and stopped), and other people afraid of being so close to the dogs would tie leashes around their mouths so they wouldn't bite- just as scary as being gassed, I think. (obviously, a caring person with good skills can put a dog to sleep with no pain...)

Once again to remind that this is the result of having the Puppy mills run in every nook & corner of USA. Overcrowded animal shelters over crowded with abandoned cats/dogs all over. NEED TO ENFORCE THE LAWS VIGOUROUSLY & STOP THE PUPPY MILLS AND THEN AUTOMATICALLY COULD STOP THESE BARBARIC PRACTICE OF GAS CHAMBERS as well. If anyone who opposes to closing & Banning these Gas chambers must be send into a gas chamber to experience the reality of it's horrendous situation. PLEASE BAN THESE ULTIMATE CRUEL PRACTICE OF murdering innocent & defenceless animals while throwing them into GAS CHAMBERS. PLEASE SHOW US THAT YOU CARE ABOUT THE EVERY LIVING BEING WHICH BELONG TO THE PLANET EARTH.
