This is against NC Law, against my will my tax dollars are funding this horrible aberration, it is classified as animal cruelty. The shelter in Davidson County, North Carolina, for example, has a history of killing kittens and puppies using the gas chamber in violation of state law. It has a history of killing elderly and sick animals by gassing, which is also illegal. And, according to an eyewitness, shelter employees put a raccoon in the gas chamber with a mother cat and her kitten in order to sadistically watch them fight before they died, laughing while they did so. A contractor who was working at the shelter told the County Board, "The gas chamber has two windows, one on either side. The raccoon and the adult cat started fighting. Then they turned the gas on. The adult cat got on one corner and the raccoon got on the other, and as soon as they turned on the gas, the kitten started shaking and going into convulsions."
