Officials of Wilson County NC: Stop using gas to euthanize pets!

4,600
Supporters

Euthanasia by gas chamber is inhumane to all animals and the residents of Wilson County are funding it with our own taxes. This outdated and cruel practice is happening frequently at the Wilson County, NC Animal Control Shelter and it's time we finally put an end to it.

The Humane Society of the United States, American Humane, American Veterinary Medical Association, National Animal Control Association, the American Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and the Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights all advocate lethal injection of sodium pentobarbitol (intravenously, not by heart-stick). It is considered the most humane, safest, and least stressful choice for euthanasia.

Not only has it been proven that the animal gas chamber brings upon the animals excessive amounts of pain, torture and anxiety, but this method is also very dangerous to the employees as well. Leaks are common during operation and explosions have occurred as well. All electrical components are to be warrantied against explosions when exposed with toxic flammable gases; however, several exhaust blower fans are operating now in several shelters with no such warranties. In fact, the manufacturing of the exhaust fans state no warranty coverage at all if component is installed with equipment using flammable gases. Rubber seals are weathered, allowing leaks to occur. This results in employees health risks and prolonging the deaths of the animals.

We consider euthanasia by intravenous injection (EBI) to be the only acceptable and humane means of euthanasia for all shelter animals. Please help us by signing this petition to bring in front of the Wilson County Board of Commissioners. Stand up for the rights of our shelter pets, they need us!

According to the American Humane Association, costs between intravenous EBI-injection at an average of $2.29 per animal versus gas chamber procedure at an average of $4.98 per animal. This is a considerable savings per animal...$2.69 per animal, in fact. MORE than 1/2 the cost saved than when using gas.

PETICION EN ESPANOL

La eutanasia cámara de gas es inumana para todos los animales, y nosotros los residentes del Condado de Wilson estamos financiando con nuestros propios impuestos. Esta práctica obsoleta y cruel que está ocurriendo con frecuencia en el condado de Wilson, Carolina del Norte Refugio de Control Animal y es hora de finalmente poner fin a la misma.

La Sociedad Protectora de Animales de los Estados Unidos, American Humane, la Asociación Americana de Medicina Veterinaria, de la Asociación Nacional de Animales, la Sociedad Americana para la Prevención de la Crueldad contra los Animales y la Asociación de Veterinarios de derechos de los animales por inyección letal defensor de pentobarbital sódico. Se considera la opción más humana, más segura y menos estresante para la eutanasia.

No sólo ha sido demostrado que la cámara de gas trae sobre los animales cantidades excesivas de dolor, la tortura y la ansiedad, pero este método también es muy peligroso para los empleados. Las fugas son comunes durante el funcionamiento y las explosiones se han producido. Todos los componentes eléctricos deben ser garantizados contra explosiones cuando se exponen a gases toxicos, e inflamables, sin embargo, varios ventiladores están operando ahora en varios refugios sin tales garantías. De hecho, la fabricación de los ventiladores de extracción estatal no cuentan con la garantía si el componente se instala con equipos que utilizan gases inflamables. Lo que permite que se produzcan fugas. Esto da como resultado riesgos para la salud de los empleados y la prolongación de la muerte de los animales.

Consideramos que la eutanasia por inyección (EBI) es el medio mas aceptable y humano para todos los animales del refugio. Por favor ayúdenos a firmar esta petición para llevarla a la Junta de Comisionados del Condado de Wilson. Defender los derechos de los animales domésticos del refugio, es muy importante ellos nos necesitan!!

De acuerdo con la Asociation Humanitaria de America (American Humane Association) el cosot de la inyeccion (EBI) es de $2.29 en compracion a la camara de gas para animales es de $4.98 por cada. ... Esto es un ahorro de $2.69 por cada animal aproxidamente mas de la mitad, en comparacion de cuando se utiliza la camara de gas.
