Stop Gas Chambers

    1. Petition by

      BELLA FOUNDATION

This petition is asking that you voice your opinion stating that the preferred method of euthanizing an animal is by injection or "EBI".

Many small and rural animal shelters in Oklahoma still utilize the method of euthanizing animals by employing a gas chamber. Gas chambers are a slow and agonizing way for animals to die. Animals are sealed inside of an air tight chamber as gas is pumped in to remove oxygen resulting in death. Because of this method there have been instances of animals attacking one another in an attempt to survive or injuring themselves trying to escape. Additionally, there have been documented cases of animals surviving after extended periods of time deprived of oxygen.  Please sign our petition to help us end the use of gas chambers in Oklahoma and tell our leaders that eunthanizing an animal by injection is more humane.

      Gas Chambers are CRUEL, HEARTLESS and UNNECESSARY when an injection is available for a peaceful death.
