Petition to Stop Gas Chamber Euthanasia in WV
After contacting the WV Board of Veterinary Medicine, it was determined that there are a handful of WV Counties remaining which are still using Gas Chamber Euthanasia on Shelter Animals... Unfortunately though, that’s a few more than we'd like, we must BAN ALL usage!!
Those counties are: Monongalia,

Current Cause for Concern: Senate Bill No. 501 (Passed May 2009) claims to prohibit the euthanizing of animals by use of a gas chamber. However, this Bill has numerous exeptions allowing the procedure! The Bill states that any county which has a Gas Chamber in operation, as of the effective date of this section, may continue to operate the gas chamber. I.E. Gas Chambers Have NOT Been Banned in WV – Only Semi-Restricted!!Additionally, this Bill reads that if “an animal cannot be humanely destroyed in an expeditious manner, an animal may be destroyed by shooting” – This is simply not good enough! How can you help? Sign our petition to Stop Gas Chamber Euthanizing of Shelter Animals!
