SB 56 to ban gas chambers killed twice in House committee

MURRAY, UT (March 6, 2017) -- Animal Shelter Amendments bill fails despite free training and lower cost

 

For the third year in a row, a proposed bill to end the use of gas chambers for shelter animal euthanasia failed to pass the Utah Legislature. On March 3, 2017, the motion to recommend S.B. 56 - Animal Shelter Amendments sponsored by Sen. Peter Knudson and Rep. Lee B. Perry failed in the House Government Operations Committee with a vote of four yeas and four nays. The bill passed the Senate Floor with a 19-7 vote last month.

HSU statement on abandonment of three dogs in Woods Cross

In the midst of holiday celebration, we’re sadly reminded of the gruesome suffering some animals endure. Three extremely emaciated dogs were abandoned in a Woods Cross, Utah, home when the owners were evicted. We’re thankful to Davis County Animal Control for taking care of these dogs and to the police for their due diligence in arresting the couple responsible. The Humane Society of Utah asks that the Luceros are held responsible for these acts of animal cruelty and be charged to the full extent of the law.
