Congressman Jim Moran of Virginia, co-chair of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, introduced House Resolution 736, which expresses opposition to the use of gas chambers as a way to euthanize shelter animals and supports states to enact laws to replace gas chambers with euthanasia by injection.
With 3 to 4 million cats and dogs being euthanized in animal shelters today, we need to ensure those deaths are humane. Gassing often can take 30 minutes or more during which time the animal is confined in a large chamber often with many other animals all terrified and some panicking to the point of attacking the other animals in the chamber. This is no way to euthanize an animal who, through no fault of his or her own, became expendable.
Please contact your representative and express your support of House Resolution 736.
