Not only is it bad enough that hundreds,maybe thousands of animals are put down daily in the US by injecting poison into them,but some shelters are using a gas chamber to kill them. The animals are put in a box on top of each other while gas is piped into it,killing them all. This is the most disgusting,inhumane,tortuerous thing possible. This type of cruelty carried out by an animal shelter should not be a part of the way animals are treated & should be stopped.

      None of these animals deserved to be so heinously treated. Especially when they KNEW that rescuers were on the way. How heartless! All of those involved should not only lose their job(s), they should be prohibited from EVER owning, or working with, animals. Also, there should be a very stiff fine and imprisonment imposed on those responsible.

      We need to be the "voice" for these innocent babies; so that they will not have died in vain.

      Gassing is inhumane. Period. These animals are dumped into these shelters through no fault of their own and it is completely barbaric and unfair to punish them for PEOPLE'S irresponsibility, cruelty, neglect, ignorance, and lack of respect for living things. I understand that animal population must be controlled and that some will be lost, but there are humane ways to handle this and penalties that can be applied to people who are not responsible pet owners. Stop punishing these animals for someone else's mistakes. Thank you!

      Why is this imIt was bad enough when the world found out that the nazi were doing this to Jewish people and deemed inhumane, we are allowing it to be done to dogs (perhaps even cats) who are more defenseless and voiceless? It is bad enough that the only reason they are being put down is because they can't find people to adopt them. What kind of backwards country are we slowly becoming?portant to you?
