A rare plea from me!

Utah is one of only a few states that still permits animal shelters to euthanize animals using gas chambers.

On a regular basis I share stories that I read on the Care2 website. Indeed, there’s a lovely story of a police officer rescuing a dog that is being republished by me at my usual posting time tomorrow.

But this petition so upset me that I wanted to share it with you all, and to do that now.

Here are the details:

212041-1464376962-wideDemand Utah Animal Shelters Stop Using Gas Chamber Euthanasia

BY: Kaylie Fox

TARGET: Utah Legislators, Utah

Utah is one of only a few states that still permits animal shelters to euthanize animals through gas chambers.
This is a cruel method, that can take up to an hour or more to be effective. During that hour the animals are scared as they slowly die alone in a cage, box, or drawer. There is a much more humane way to euthanize animals by intravenous injection, which allows animals to experience a much more peaceful death – usually within 30 seconds.
Gas chamber euthanasia is inhumane and outdated, when there are better methods available. Sign this petition demanding that the Utah Legislature pass a bill to end gas chamber use in animal shelters.

I just signed a Care2 petition to demand that the Utah State Legislature pass a bill to end gas chamber use in animal shelters.

  1. I just signed this one too. Perhaps a good state-wide neutering plan should be a high priority so to reduce the number of unwanted animals. I do not believe in euthanizing healthy animals at all. Warm wishes, Sam

  2. Can’t pass by a plea from you! Signed… 84,836 — and rising. Should suffice, one would think, but then this horror shouldn’t be happening in the first place. Bloomin’ humans!
