"Saving one dog will not change the world, but for that one dog the world is changed forever." _______________________________________________________________________

END GAS CHAMBER EUTHANASIA

More State Taking on Gas Chambers

This video shows the results of being gassed to death. It is heart wrenching to watch. Some of the larger animals are still alive, when they come out of the kill box. They are still breathing, or struggling to breath. The animals, cry, scream out loud and claw and climb on top of each other trying to get out. It is Horrific to watch. For any and all of us to stand by and NOT try to do SOMETHING to stop this barbaric practice is appalling.

RIGHT NOW EFFORTS HAVE BEGUN TO STOP GASSING IN TEXAS, BELOW IS PETITION TO SIGN FOR TEXAS RESIDENTS Target: State Legislature sponsored by: Denise Rinker stop the practice of euthanasia by gassing for ALL shelter animals in the state of Texas. Stop the Gassing of cats, dogs and wildlife in the animal shelters of Texas! Please sign petition to the Governor of Texas!!!!!!

Often, animals who are put down are lost pets, and were not claimed before their mandatory hold period expired. This happens for many reasons - pets get lost while their owners are on vacation, on business trips, etc. Sometimes pets have traveled so far from home that their owners aren't even searching in the right shelters. Many pets escape the yard. Some are strays and some, the owner can no longer care for in this economy and are owner surrender, or abandoned on foreclosed property. Must these pets die in this awful fashion because their owners did not retrieve them? Or because they were not adopted from the shelter? Would you want your pet to die that way? In today's current situation, more and more pet owners, are turning their dogs into the shelter, or turning them loose to be picked up as strays. Convicted murderers are put to death by lethal injection, but not our faithful companions. How does that really speak of us?

Even though a majority of the shelters in the state use euthanasia by injection, several still use outdated, inhumane gas chambers. Shelter workers overwhelmingly wish to hold and comfort a frightened animal in its final moments of life. That act may be the only kindness the animal has ever known.

The American Humane Association considers euthanasia by injection to be the only acceptable and humane means of euthanasia for animals in animal shelters. They do NOT think gassing is an acceptable means.

Such outdated practices also create public outcry and demean the purpose of an animal shelter. Space is so limited in Texas shelters that animals don't have much time. Many shelters are currently overflowing...but that is another petition.

They say, just one person, can make a change, well I can only start the change initiative, I really cannot do it without YOU.

The more signatures, the louder the voice for the animals. Help put a stop to this horrendous act of cruelty. Please forward to everyone you know, who may be willing to sign. If you live in Texas, please be sure to include your zip code signing the petition, it will be very important if they want to verify your signature. Please join me on Facebook and youtube. PLEASE Be sure to RATE the youtube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XC-6qNi3bk&feature=fvw )and feel free to leave your thoughts there also. Remember, this is what we are going to send to the Governor of Texas. We have to be rated so we can go higher in ratings and get some well deserved attention. Thank you so very much.
