PA: Ban the Gassing of Animals!
Dear Pennsylvania Advocates,
Pennsylvania Senate Bill 672, legislation that was introduced to outlaw the use of gas chambers on animals, passed the Senate Agriculture Committee in April but has not advanced since then. We now need your help to ensure passage of this important humane legislation in the Senate.
Gassing is an inhumane, prolonged process that can take as long as 30 minutes to work. Many animals panic during the procedure, and first attempts occasionally are unsuccessful.
What You Can Do
Please be the animals' voice and contact your state senator to ask him or her to support SB 672. Visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center today to email your state senator on behalf of this bill.
In addition to sending this important email, please consider calling your senator about SB 672. You can look up your legislator's phone number on our website, ASPCA.
Thank you, Pennsylvania advocates—your support is invaluable!
