The least we can do for these poor unfortunate animals is give them a humane death- not a terrifying dark box with noxious fumes...

signed and noted...these animals should not have their remaining minutes in this cruel harsh manner...they should be respected. they are at the hands of humans that determine their fate, they can't speak or run, only lead into this horrible room to be killed....this makes my heart so very sad....i just do not understand why people are so cruel to these innocent animals that can not do anything about what is happening...thank God all will go to Rainbow Bridge where they are at last free and happy once more....i cry every day as to the treatment of our animals at the hands of so many cruel humans....how is it possible to be happy when you know so many animals are suffering all the time??????? God make this a better place for them....they can not help what has happened to their life.....it seems like they are thought of as trash, throwaways, just get rid of them!!!!!! my heart just hurts for all of them....God be with them.....

Signed. Until recently, I though gas chambers went out back in the 60's. That being said, if people would not let their dogs and cats breed, there would be no use for gas chambers. Those who are breeding their animals are responsible for this.

We HUMANS have long sensed stop using a gas chamber to "KILL HUMANS ON DEATH ROW" it is time to put an end to gas chamber use on animals also we HUMANS need to put and end to all animal killing if we humans would have left the dogs an cats in the wild there would not be a need for a gas chambers or drugs to kill dogs and cats today. =^..^=

Noted and happily signed to STOP this barbaric act of cruelty to innocent cats and dogs,heartbreaking to think about them in the gas chamber!!!!! If they must be put to sleep PLEASE let it be humanely with someone who is kind and caring being with them in their last minutes of life,better still if cats and dogs were spayed/neutered then we would not have these poor dogs and cats living on the streets who nobody cares about and they then face an horrific death due to irresponsible uncaring humans.They deserve to be treated with kindness and compassion.Thank you Cal.Liz Xx

We should be a nation of no kill shelters. We gain far more that is priceless and transformational by caring for, learning from and living in harmony with animals than by what is achieved from harming them. Animals teach us to be better humans and help heal us when we're broken.

signed. One of the reasons the Nazis started using gas chambers what that it was too hard emotionally on soldiers to shoot people to death on a day to day basis. Gas chambers were impersonal, you didn't see your victim suffer.
I would imagine euthanizing a healthyanimal with a needle because there is no more room at the shelter is difficult for workers to do. I am not saying I am for the chambers not at all. I think if the person who surrenders an animal because they are bored with it, too much trouble, we have a new baby, we have grandma living with us, it pooped on the rug, yada yada yada...if these people were instructed on how to euthanize the animal right there, they may have a second thought instead of assuming it will get adopted out.

Why should our animals suffer because of "human’s" GREED, TEST OBJECTS, FETTISH FOR “STRANGE” FOOD, PLEASURE, GREED AND SADISTIC BEHAVIOUR? If people dont have compassion for animals - THEY ARE NOT WORTHY TO BE CALLED HUMANS!!! Somebody who enjoys treating animals cruelly, violently and perform inhumane tests on them, lack taste or refinement characterized by an uncivilized culture. They are undomesticated, non literate, primitive, barbaric and uncultivated savages. “PEOPLE” WITH A LOW IQ OR NONE !!!!
According to “research”, humans have a highly developed brain and are capable of abstract reasoning, introspection, problem solving and language - humans are noted for their desire to understand and influence their environment, (what a joke), seeking to explain and manipulate phenomena through science, philosophy(values/way of life/thinking), mythology(tradition) and religion(belief) - portrayed as having high-level thought ……. sapience (wisdom), rationality and self-awareness are considered to be defining features of what constitutes a “person”. WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH! I wonder how they got to this conclusion……. If “humans” were like this, there would’ve been NO cruelty to animals, NO global warming issues, No human suffering, etc , etc , etc
We all have a role to play in positively changing the world in which we live. We each hold within ourselves unique qualities that we brought into this world….these qualities help us see the sole purpose of our existence. In order to live this purpose and make our contribution, we have to be our best selves and that means we have to protect, nurture, preserve, cherish, cultivate, and recognize the value of our animals and our earth.
When will people stop destroying animals and earth? Do we really only want to see buildings and people at the end of the day?

This barbaric, yesteryear technology for slow painful killing is an atrocity. There are more humane methods of euthanasia readily available. The use of gas chambers on any sentient being is unconscionable and indefensible. These shameful and sickening horror chambers all need to be dismantled and long gone.
