If gas chambers were so "humane" then why was this practice banned for the worst serial killers in America, yet it's "okay" to do it to our innocent pets which is senseless and cruel.

Noted. Not signed as it still advocates killing by lethal injection and I don't agree with putting animals down unless they incurably sick and suffering. I don't want animals to be gassed but I don't want them to be killed at all. I have a moral dilemma over this one.

signed While I do not agree about euthanizing healthy adoptable companion animals the reality is that this still is happening. Until we do better controlling the overpopulation and handling of our companion animals, develop better programs for them and humans, here is what I wrote:

This heinous, barbaric egregiously cruel method of exterminating a living sentient being, the preferred method of murder by Nazi Germany, should have gone away when the Third Reich did. No intelligent, emotional sentient being should ever have to endure the terror, agony, misery and suffering to their death in such a manner. It is way past time to eradicate and disassemble these death chambers, across the board, across the country, period. The same can be said for the use of death by heart stick. It too is unconscionable, egregiously cruel and indefensible when we have much more humane methods of euthanasia available. This is one thing that we can all agree on. And it must happen immediately!

signed. What we also need to do is heavily fine back yard breeders and close down puppy mills.
In my opinion, breeders would sell their own offspring if it would bring them a fast buck.

Sadly signed! I truly hate the fact that our signatures are needed! Why the hell do those who permit gassing as permissible just boggles my mind. Those who gas these innocent sentient beings SHOULD be at the forefront of this inhumane practice! I would prefer being hungry, homeless or whatever than to have a job that would force me to killing innocent animals. But ultimately we need to put a fire under not only our stupid political morons but those in charge of the animal "shelters". Interesting that word shelter, it means to provide, protect and instead you get mass killings in many of them, perhaps these places should be called killing centers.

S+N I remember when i was just a kid, I saw a dog killed in a gas chamber at the local shelter. The poor dogs tongue was hanging out and it looked like it had suffered a lot, after that even though I was young, I promised myself never again would an animal die like that. Even if I find a stray animal and it is too hurt to be saved, I will pay the bill for a vet to it to sleep with me holding it, an injection is much kinder and having some one, so they do not die alone is very important. No one wants to die alone and what is good enough for people is good enough for animals, they should always have someone hold them.

Signed and noted. #777 needed. Thank you Kelly. I know a lot of states in the US are shutting down the gas chambers, but it's not fast enough. This is sadistic. If gas chambers were banned for convicted murders, why is it ok for innocent pets?

Noted & signed. People are the main culprits who breed these innocent animals for gaining money & the profit. They should be the ones to put into gas chambers to perish before the animals. Instead of punishing the deed these brainless people are punishing the breeds.

I wouldn't - couldn't watch the video. that humans can mass kill , torture frightened innocent animals to death is barbaric and sadistic. these mass killings and kill shelters could be a thing of the past if Congress would get off their heartless ass and ban puppy mills in all 50 USA States!
