Sample Letter in Support of Senate Bill 1329

 

Dear Senator _________,

It’s time for Pennsylvania to join the long and growing list of states that prohibit gassing as a method for euthanizing pet animals.

I encourage you to support and move forward Senate Bill 1329,  legislation that would prohibit gassing and also require that cats and dogs be euthanized by injection of sodium pentobarbital or one of its derivatives – the method widely considered the most humane.

This issue is extremely personal to me and many other voters who care deeply for our pets.  Humane euthanasia is affordable and available, and we no longer need to permit veterinarians and shelters to continue the often inhumane and dated act of gassing. It’s an appalling fact that it remains a perfectly legal method of euthanasia to attach a hose from the tailpipe of a vehicle to a sealed container to suffocate a dog or cat.

I urge you to support Senate Bill 1329 and vote it out of committee now.

Sincerely,

 

Your name

Sample Talking Points in Support of Senate Bill 1329

 

  • Euthanasia by injection is the safest and least expensive way to euthanize shelter animals.

 

  • Under current Pennsylvania law, pets killed by gassing may be subjected to temperatures of up to 115 degrees.

 

  • Carbon monoxide poses a danger to humans because it is colorless, tasteless, odorless, and highly explosive.  In 2000, a shelter worker in Tennessee was asphyxiated to death while operating a faulty gas chamber and others have been injured. In contrast, there are no documented reports of any shelter worker being killed from an accidental injection of sodium pentobarbital

 

  • It can take up to 30 minutes for a dog or cat to die in a gas chamber, whereas an injection causes loss of consciousness within 3 to 5 seconds and clinical death within 2 to 5 minutes.

 

  • Animals don’t always die in gas chambers.
