The practice is still legal in 32 states for dogs and cats. In many states which ban it for dogs and cats—like New York and California—they allow it for other species. Indeed, if you wanted to build a gas chamber to kill animals slowly and cruelly, there was a time when HSUS was happy to show you how—their homemade gas barrels are still in use in some U.S. shelters today.
In fact, Davidson County not only gasses animals, they gas young and sick animals in violation of law. The N.C. Animal Welfare Administrative Code prohibits use of the gas chamber for animals that appear to be 16 weeks or younger, pregnant or near death because it takes sick, younger or older animals longer to absorb the gas, resulting in a slower death.
Grant to University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine for Surgery Training
November 9, 2010: The Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association has joined with the Florida-based Kislak Family Fund to present a $25,000 grant to the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine for a surgical training program that benefits injured and ill shelter animals.
Background: The HSVMA and the Kislak Family Fund joined with The Humane Society of the United States in 2008 to provide $40,000 to help initiate the HAARTS program, after Dr. Paula Kislak, a 1984 alumna of the UF CVM consulted with interested students and faculty. An additional $30,000 was donated in 2009.
We the petition signers would like some answers from the HSUS about their support of vivisection,gas chambers and dog fightin(Michael Vick).Why would we want to support the HSUS when they support these horrific things being done to our innocent animals?We would like some answers to why the HSUS would support these things.Thank you for your time on this very important matter.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
