SALISBURY, N.C. -- Residents lined the streets of Downtown Salisbury Tuesday to protest against the gas chamber used at the Rowan County Animal Shelter.
They want the shelter to use euthanasia by injection instead, which they say is cheaper and more humane.
“What the animals have to face with a needle is much less than a gas chamber for 20 to 30 minutes until they’re finally dead,” Randy Orloff with Project Pets said.
The group says the county has refused grants from the Humane Society to fix up the shelter and they want them to take action.
Commissioners didn’t make any decision about the matter at Tuesday night’s meeting.
