Call to Action on Grant’s Bill to End the Use of Gas Chambers in Michigan Animal Shelters

Although Grant had offers from rescue groups to be saved, he was killed in a gas chamber by St. Joseph County Animal Control in 2008.

Grant’s Bill, SB 354 to end gas chamber use in Michigan shelters is still sitting in the House Committee on Local Government. If your Representative is a member of that committee (which includes Reps. Amanda Price, Dave Pagel, Kevin Daley, Ray Franz, Peter Pettalia, Pat Somerville, Bruce Rendon, Joseph Graves, Woodrow Stanley, Brian Banks, Alberta Talabi, and Robert Kosowski) please call her or his office to politely request that they support SB 354 when it is heard again in their committee. You can find your Representatives and their contact info at http://house.mi.gov/MHRPublic/, and more info about Grant’s Bill is at http://michigandersforshelterpets.org/grants-bill/.

Currently, there are four animal shelters in Michigan who still use the gas chamber: Berrien County Animal Control, Branch County Animal Control, Cass County Animal Control and Van Buren County Animal Control.
