Will someone please do this?

In the state of Michigan their are still 12 animal shelters that use carbon monoxide or dioxide gas chambers to euthanize their animals who have severe medical illnesses, and who cannot get adopted. I think this is TOTALLY inhumane and I am asking anyone who reads this to please sign this act. I feel very strongly for these animals. It is not fair to them to be so tortured in such cruel ways in their last minutes on earth. It takes these animals up to 20-30 minutes to actually pass away. All they need is 50,000 signatures. As of right now they have 28,127.
Thank you all very much!

  • It isn't torture with the injection, that is just like making them fall asleep. Very painless. But when they put them in the gas chamber that IS torture to these animals. Nobody can comfort them on their last limb of life, and it is painful for them. Just think of yourself being in a gas chamber.!
