As Human beings we have a duty to other species, to treat them humanely & responsibly. The fact so many animals are being killed to begin with is a breach of that responsibility. But as we seem to have little choice but to deal with over population this way the very least we can do is Kill these poor animals in a fast, pain & stress free manor. Gas Chambers are not any of these things, & it is shameful they are still in use in the U.S today.
We urge you to make Illinois a State that bans this awful practice.

      This is a way of sending poor unwanted or sick animals to their painful death. This is "Animal Cruelty". This needs to be stopped. The animals suffer a very long and painful death which is severe and uncalled for while on their way out of this hateful world. Before they pass, they suffer threw 40 minutes of shear terror, anxiety, fearfulness, and some, honestly, I wonder if they aren't scared to death in the process. This is totally wrong and against the laws of nature. This law should be directed at the shelters using this technique of deposing of our homeless four legged friends. Louisiana and Minnesota are just two states that are still using this technique. Please help me in helping the fight against this abuse of gassing by not just making it illegal to send animals to a dumpster by this process, but make it illegal to even make the devices used to carry out such a terrible crime of nature. So please help stop this cruel way of killiing our beloved animals all across the united states.

      Gas chambers are not humane. They do not "gas" the animal, they increase the pressure inside akin to a diver rising too quickly to the surface of water. The death for the animal is prolonged and agonizing.
