End the Gas Chamber


gas-chambers-map-full June 2016

The reality is shocking: Currently, almost 3 million companion pets are euthanized in shelters each year.

While one of the goals of Animal Aid USA is to end the necessity of euthanasia of unwanted pets, we still have a long way to go.  When an animal must be euthanized, it is imperative that it be done in the most humane way possible.

While many shelters practice humane euthanasia by injection of approved drugs, some still use the gas chamber.  In gas chambers, animals are forced into a box, often along with many others.  The gassing process takes several minutes and often much longer during which time the animals experience fear, panic and immense suffering.

Please help us stop this.

What can you do?

  1. If your your shelters still uses a gas chamber, contact shelter leaders, local officials and media.
  2. Encourage state legislators to support a statewide gas chamber ban.
  3. Donate to groups, like us,  who will use the funds to campaign for  legislation to ban the chamber and provide grants to rural shelters so they can provide the education, training and supplies needed to discontinue gas chambers use.
  4. Sign our petition and encourage others to do the same.
