Urge Alabama Legislators to Ban Gas Chambers for Animals

There's no excuse for using gas chambers to euthanize animals. Compared to euhanasia by injection (EBI), gas is both far less humane and far more expensive. 

Alabama legislators are considering "Beckham's Act," HB 147 and SB 172, which would ban the use of carbon monoxide gas chambers in animal shelters. The bill is named for Beckham, a dog who survived the gas chamber earlier this year.

With over 50 cosponsors, Beckham's Act seems to have the support to pass, but it's up to animal advocates like you to make sure that Alabama legislators pass this important legislation this year.
