Tell Oklahoma Government Officials, Ban Inhumane Gassing of Dogs & Cats Now!

    1. Petition by

      Larissa Tuttle

      Mission Viejo, CA

Gassing homeless dogs and cats to death is painful, cruel, and barbaric. It should be illegal in every state-in every country. Historically, this inhumane method of killing was used by the Nazis, and to this day is not allowed even for the punishment of our most severe serial killers. 

In many shelters, this cruel method of “euthanasia” involves placing animals in a gas chamber without sedation where they suffocate to death. In some pounds, cats are piled in with dogs, small dogs are mixed in with large dogs, and they all fight each other for the last breath of air.

The truth is, the great majority of pets killed in gas chambers are very adoptable and not sick or injured. They are perfectly healthy but it is easier to kill them than to care for them and find them new homes. For some it is a matter of convenience so they can get rid of many animals at a time--without requiring a vet to be on staff.

Please sign this petition and send a letter to Oklahoma government officials to tell them to put an end to to the inhumane gas chamber killings NOW. And tell them to follow other states who only allow more humane euthanasia, when absolutely necessary.

      if the law declares this inhumane and too cruel for prisoners who commit rape, murder and molestation, what makes anyone think it's okay for animals?

      Gas chambers are cruel and unusual punishment. We should not subject the innocent creatures who depend on us to this inhumane treatment. Remember, one can judge the character of people by their treatment of animals. What kind of character do you have?
