ASPCA-Massachusetts Law Ends Use of Gas Chambers

Dog for adoption

Friday, August 3, 2012, the ASPCA announced that Massachusetts has passed a law ending the use of gas chambers to euthanize animals in that State.

The new law also includes:

  • A Statewide spay/neuter program to reduce number of homeless animals;
  • New requirements for training of animal control officers;
  • Improves existing dangerous dog laws to ensure they are not breed specific;
  • Allows pets to be included in domestic violence orders.

This is a major step forward for pets and their humans in Massachusetts.

However, over 30 States continue to use gas chambers, a horribly cruel method of euthanization for animals.

Please sign petitions online to stop the use of gas chambers wherever they exist.
