Do you remember the miracle beagle that survived the AL gas chamber last fall?  His name is Daniel and he has a mission now to try to ban the gas chamber across the country.  He's nominated for a hero dog award and if you would like to see him win so he can better promote his cause(s), you can vote for Daniel here:

http://www.herodogawards.org/vote/#

You can vote daily per email address.

He also has a facebook page if you want to learn more about him:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Daniel-The-B

I don't know how to add a picture or this one is too big, but here's a picture of Daniel right after he survived the gas chamber.  All the other dogs in the chamber with him died - I think 16 of them. Poor guy.  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=275 y p e =3&theater

As much as it pains to say it, I just don't think that is the answer right now.

As with many things especially today, a band aid can cause more problems that fix.
There are unfortunately many things like this today.
If we outlawed abortion, girls will start dying again from "coat hanger" abortions, and we would have an over abundance of unwanted kids with no solution.

Same could happen with animals. You most likely would see a huge jump in the stray animal population.
So then is it more human to let them die a slow painful death picking scrapes off the streets and disease?

A noble cause to be sure, I am just not sure it is the right answer today.
 Energy maybe better devoted to the root causes of the problem.

I just voted for Daniel.  We need to get rid of Gas Chambers as a way of euthanizing animals. I worked for a kill shelter years ago on the boarder and this was their way of destroying the animals.  Not good!  Yes, unfortunaely they have to be euthanized, but the more kindly way is with a lethal dose of pentobarbital.

So you are saying @ukpam that the time would NOT be better spent on solving the cause, but rather using another band aid to fix the problem?

I hate that any animals have to be euthanized.  I am not sure what the answer is, but gas chambers seem awful.

It seems like the politicians have "acclimated the public to" we can throw a quick fix and satisfy everyone. 
But then nn years later there is another problem directly related to the solving of the old problem. We just keep passing the problem along. (can you say Stimulus as an example?)

During the Regan years we gave a bunch of "undocumented workers" citizenship or green cards, whatever, with the promise they would fix the border issue.
Has that been fixed?

So if outlaw the gas chambers, then we could become complacent because we are more "human" now, but the initial problems causing these poor animals to require euthanize has not changed.

So I wonder if we spend the time to accomplish changing out gas chambers, to working the problems of why we have all these animals that need to be killed, would we then be better off in the long run and less euthanize animals would result?

I'm saying that if you have to euthanize the Gas Chamber is not the best method.  Nothing to do with time or solutions. They don't just put one animal in the chamber at a time.  The animals can sit there or hours waiting for the cages to be filled up before they roll them in chamber.   The only solution to the unwanted pet population is to SPAY/NEUTER, get rid of Puppy Mills and Backyard Breeders.

So if you devoted the same amount time to fixing the base problem, would that not be better?
All those animals are in cages so being transferred to a crate is just as boring to them.
You are buying into the human emotion, not the animal emotion.
Spend the time to fixc the cause, and less animals will be euthanize.

Fofa, I've been battling the root of the problem for 7 years now. I am just a young person in rescue, many people I volunteer alongside with have been battling this root problem(irresponsible people and uncaring law makers) for decades and decades.

We actually go out there on our free time, mainly on weekends when others are enjoying their days off with their loved ones and sleeping in, and tirelessly fight for those that have no voice. We fight for change and education/awareness. Please don't be under the assumption that we are not addressing the root of the problem. Euthanasia is a necessary evil and will be for a long time to come. Aside from fighting the battle at the root of the problem, at least we can try and make death a little more humane and peaceful for these unwanted pets by eliminating the gas chamber.

Spay & Neuter your animals people.

It drives me nuts that the majority of low income people have animals in the first place. If you can't feed yourself or your family, you CANNOT properly care for a dog or cat.

I think there should be a mandatory spay/neuter law......no ifs, ands or buts about it.

I am completely for banning these gas chambers, there are a handful of states that still use them. Absurd!
