Update Aug. 10, 2011: Last night at least 200 people packed the Davidson County, North Carolina County Council meeting room to try to convince commissioners to abandon the archaic carbon monoxide gas chambers still used to kill shelter animals.
A motion to do just that was filed by Commissioner Cathy Dunn, but no other commissioner seconded it. A number of residents spoke in favor of the motion.

Update June 4, 2011: S.B. 172/H.B. 147 has passed the Alabama state senate unanimously! The bill previously passed the state House of Representatives and now goes to Gov. Robert Bentley for his signature, after which "within 30 days after January 1, 2012, any gas chambers operated prior to that date shall have been dismantled and been removed, and provide documentation to that effect."

Despite its own warnings and criticism about animal carbon monoxide gas chambers, the AVMA still finds their use acceptable. The 2007 American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) policy report on animal euthanasia (attached below) states carbon monoxide gas chambers are an acceptable method of killing animals.
