To stop the use of Carbon Monoxide to euthanize cats, kittens, puppies and dogs in Pennsylvania. Its is cruel and inhumane. Please contact governemnt officials in your area and encourage them to outlaw this inhumane practice and to change to humane euthanasia by injection for the animals that are not adopted from the shelters. As always, spay/neuter your pets as it's the only proven way to stop the overpopulation of cats and dogs. Also, save a shelter cat or dogs by adopting them from your local shelters and do not buy any animals from any breeders. If they don't have the demand they don't have a market to sell to. Please, help stop the suffering of these innocent animals by signing this petition today.

We the undersinged are opposed to the use of Carbon Monoxide as an acceptable measure for euthanizing cats and dogs. It is cruel and inhumane and the use of injectables are a more humane way of euthanizing them. Veterinarians and other experts agree that a properly injected dose of sodium pentobarbital ensures a humane death for those animals whose lives must be ended.
Inhaled carbon monoxide gas, even at low levels, can be dangerous to caretakers, causing many human health problems or even resulting in death. Furthermore, carbon monoxide gas is invisible to workers, is highly flammable, and explosive.
We have shown that THE SAFEST AND MOST HUMANE WAY TO EUTHANIZE AN ANIMAL IS BY LETHAL INJECTION. Therefore, we advocate that shelters move from the use of inhalant gases to injectable barbiturates for routine euthanasia to ensure a humane death for those animals whose lives must be ended.
