American Humane Association - Taking a Stand to Fight the Inhumane Practice of Animal Euthanizing

I still can’t believe it. More than 20 states continue to allow the use of gas chambers in our nation's animal shelters.

I don’t know how this is possible, because even with vigilant oversight, euthanizing dogs and cats by means of carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide is barbaric and inhumane.

Take Daniel for instance. This loving beagle entered a gas chamber in an Alabama shelter along with 17 other animals. But when the door later opened, he miraculously walked right out, having survived the cruel torture.

Daniel has since been adopted by a loving New Jersey family, and was even honored at the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards™ in 2012. But while Daniel’s story is inspiring, it also reinforces the fact that gas chambers are just an unacceptable way to euthanize animals.

American Humane Association has made incredible strides the past few years to end the use of gas chambers in several states, but our work is not done. We cannot stop until our entire nation has outlawed this horrible practice inflicted on our shelter animals.

Please add your name to the list of those who stand with us as we fight to have this inhumane practice banned in all 50 states. And I urge you to forward this to your friends so they can be part of this important mission.
