Congratulations Jacque and best of luck with your new shelter adoption room.  You have made so many wonderful changes in the best interest of the animals, making sure they all go to great homes.  Keep up the great work!  

Anyone who is interested in adopting kittens, especially around early July should check their local animal shelter. Animal shelters are usually bursting with kittens by then, and throughout the summer. Why get just any kitten off the street whos health and temperment are uncertain when you could adopt a kitten (or better yet, adult cat) from a shelter who has been health checked, spayed or neutered, and whose temperment is usually screened (depending on the shelter). Why contribute to the overpopulation problem, when you could save a life?

 

What a shame these dogs below did not get a great home:   

  (they only had 3 working days)  

 Please call them everyday to find one you are looking for. 

  10 LABS!  They get  all sizes, breeds and mostly young!

 

COUNTY COMMISSIONERS PLEASE ASK JACQUE HOW MANY PERSONNEL SHE NEEDS TO HUMANELY EUTHANIZE THESE SWEET PETS:

                             

UINTAH  County agrees  to sell euthanasia GAS chamber 
January 8, 2003 (Vernal Newspaper)
Uintah County Commissioners Monday agreed to sell its euthanasia chamber to Utah 
County for $4,500.

The chamber, which has been used by Vernal City and Uintah County animal control 
departments to dispose of unwanted dogs and cats, has been a source of 
contention with local animal care associations. "Most in these organizations 
view the chamber as a cruel way to put animals to death," said Russell Pierson, 
Vernal City assistant city manager, who presented the sale of the chamber to 
commissioners.

The chamber has not been used by animal control officials for over a year during 
which time dogs and cats have been put to death using lethal injections " a 
method viewed by many as a more humane way to euthanize animals.

When the chamber was purchased by Vernal City and Uintah County two years ago 
for $5,000, it was viewed effective and less costly way of euthanazing an 
animal. Then euthanasia costs were over $15 per animal. Since the purchase, less 
expensive injections have become available, and the manager of the Animal 
Shelter can administer them rather than paying a veterinarian.

"Animal care groups came to us requesting that chamber not be used and even 
offering to purchase it to insure it wouldn't be used," Pierson said.

The animal was put to death by placing them in one of the enclosures of the 
device and carbon monoxide in pumped into the chamber to suffocate the animal. 
"The chamber is easier on the operators, because they don't have to handle the 
animals before they are put to death," Pierson said. "If the animal is large, it 
may require a sedative before an injection can be administered.

Pierson said the cost of injection are a low as a $1 per animal, but cost for 
the euthanasia chamber is about 50 cents per animal.

"We need to keep the support of our local animal care organizations," said 
Commissioner Jim Abegglen about the sale of the euthanasia chamber.

Animal care groups have been instrumental in the construction of a new animal 
shelter built by Vernal City and Uintah County.
Last year,

American Humane published their policy on euthanasia of dogs and cats in

animal shelters.  American Humane's Policy Statement on Acceptable Method of Euthanasia of

Dogs and Cats in Animal Shelters  American Humane considers euthanasia by injection of sodium pentobarbital

(EBI) to be the only acceptable method for euthanasia of dogs and cats in

animal shelters.  American Humane considers the use of any other lethal method for dogs and

cats in animal shelters unacceptable, including use of carbon monoxide,

carbon dioxide, nitrogen, nitrous oxide, argon, or anesthetic gasses, as

well as physical methods such as electrocution, gunshot, and blunt force

trauma.

Approved January 26, 2003

 If  you need assistance with convincing Utah County to change

their procedures, we can certainly offer you assistance, a cost analysis

showing that costs are the same for EBI and a chamber, and expert testimony

by one of the nations leading experts in animal euthanasia, Doug Fakkema.

Our state legislative expert, Amy Ridings could also offer you assistance in

drafting legislation stipulating that EBI be used in animal shelters.

Several states already have this legislation.

American Humane has successfully worked with shelters and local governments,

most notably the City of Detroit, to assist in making the conversion to

Euthanasia By Injection. We encourage you to continue to make a difference

for the animals by working with your local shelter to facilitate change..
