Dog in Gas Chamber

Dog in Gas Chamber

The legislation on a ban on the gas chamber came at the request of Defenders of Animals because the organization was convinced that the device was an inhumane method for euthanizing dogs and cats.

The General Assembly passed Senator John J. Tassoni’s bill in (2005 – Senate version. It provides for the disposal of animals by lethal injection only.

The House version was introduced by Representative Charlene M. Lima (D) who represents District 14 in Cranston and Providence. Representative Lima serves as the Deputy Speaker.
