I do hope this is true, I have very low expectations of anything positive coming out of Austin.

Great news!!! But all remaining States that currently use this cruel and senseless gassing method need to also be banned. Thx Dianne.

This is great news!! Hopefully, it will soon be implemented all across Texas and I hope that other states still using terribly inhumane gassing will also ban this painful and barbaric practice to homeless animals! Thanks Dianne for sharing this!

Alright! This cruel barbaric practice needs to end everywhere. Thanks Dianne.

This is a good step in the right direction. The implementation of spaying and neutering education, clinics and programs would severely impact the numbers of homeless and unwanted animals with lots of others and businesses working to find homes. San Antonio has been working hard to become no kill and is almost there. They are a good example of what people can do once they get a plan. It's worth checking them out!

Good news but they need to go to the root of the problem and make all those that breed or let their animals breed have to buy breeders licences and have to take back all the animals they produce, no matter how old or sick the animal is. The shelters have to do this, so should those responsible for the mess in the first place.

Ban gassing at all animal pounds globally and implement NO KILL shelters/pounds.
Spay and neuter all pets.

So what do you do when there is a proliferation of animals with the over population so great there is no way you can feed them? Now the next specie..,. 9 billion of them. Guess we'll leave that to nature and the next plague. Or maybe a war or two.

Banning of gas chambers everywhere is a wonderful thing!!
Banning the inhumane gas chambers has nothing to to with any "plagues"?!

Sorry but I am a bit confused on some of the comments posted her,this is a good thing...doing away with the gas chamber EVERYWHERE is a good thin.I do not understand the "plague" comment or the above comment???
Can someone please help me out with this?Michael,Tom?

Is it better for an animal to put down with gassing,so they can struggle,fight each other,flip around,vomit and scratch to get out of the locked door---all the while breathing toxic gas for up to 1/2 hour before they die???!

Excuse me, but Texas is far from the only state that has gas chambers and they are actually trying to change it. Further, if you are going to take pot-shots about how ignorant Texans are you should use proper grammar, fool.
