Gas chambers have no place in our nation’s public or private shelters. They cannot provide a truly humane (pain- and stress-free) euthanasia for any animal, they are more expensive than the humane alternative euthanasia by injection, they pose risk of injury and even death to shelter staff, and they have been condemned for routine shelter euthanasia by the AVMA, as well as The HSUS, NACA, and every other national animal welfare organization. See what The HSUS is doing to eliminate gas chambers from our nation’s shelters. Read the HSUS Statement on Gas Chambers and view the use of gas chambers by state.
