We’ve known for many years that gas chamber euthanasia is NOT the most humane way to move dogs and cats to the Rainbow Bridge. So why do some shelters still do it????
For whatever reasons they use gas chambers, its time to stop! If you want to know more about it, please read this petition asking us all to encourage one Michigan shelter to join the rest of us in the 21st Century.
Please be advised that there is some graphic information in the petition.
Thanks to Buster for barking in this petition.
Stop Gas Chamber Euthanasia in Michigan
Target:Berrien County Michigan Residents (and any others that wish to help)
Created by:Mikka Cardinelli
I am writing this petition crying out for the help of the people to help stop the inhumane euthanasia of animals by gas chamber. Hundreds and maybe even thousands of animals each year are placed in the gas chamber of Berrien County Michigan Animal Control to die. The entire process of gassing these animals can take as long as 25 minutes to complete. While the animals are in this gas chamber even before the gassing begins the animals can get very frightened and start to fight and as the gas starts to fill the chamber the animals start to howl for release. Even though these animals are unconscious within a couple of minutes, they slowly die from lack of oxygen.
