Does your State still allow gas chamber euthanasia?  The Humane Society of the United States provides this chart to find out, as well as ways you can help support their efforts to put them to an end.

american humane assn logoIf you live in a state that still allows gas chamber euthanasia, you can do the following: Contact your local shelter to determine its euthanasia practice. If the shelter uses gas, politely ask the shelter director and your county commissioners to transition to EBI. Start a petition to send to your county commissioners, calling for your local shelter to transition to EBI. Involve the local media to drum up additional community support for a transition. Talk to one of American Humane Association’s EBI trainers to gain a better understanding of the technique and the training that is available to euthanasia technicians. Contact Share American Humane Association’s resources with the shelter, and let shelter management know that American Humane Association is available as a resource in transitioning to EBI. Contact your state legislators — particularly if you are in a county that uses the gas chamber — and gauge their interest in sponsoring a gas chamber ban bill.
