An Important Cause....

One of our counties here in Ohio that's just east of Columbus, Licking County, still uses a gas chamber to "euthanize" the dogs in its shelter. There seems to be some conflicting information about how often it is used and on what types of dogs, but it is not in dispute that carbon monoxide is still used at this dog shelter.
You can read about this issue in an article about the ongoing protests in the local paper here:

My photographer, Rachel, is active in pet rescue groups, and if you check out this link, you'll see that she made the front page of her local paper protesting this very issue! She's right in front in the black shirt. Way to go, Rachel! http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4040/4570035264_24c39c2447_b.jpg

So for those of you who live in Ohio, it would be great if you could add your voice to the protest by calling your local representative or senator, and/or the folks listed in the article referenced in the first link. And even if you're not in Ohio, feel free to register your displeasure! More on this later!
