These dogs KNOW SOMEHOW THEY ARE GOING TO DIE!! FIRST they cry and sometimes scream pitifully for the door to open. They try not to breath in the gas ,but have no choice. They cover they're noses with they're paws trying to escape the gas. As the gas gets stronger and knocks out all oxygen, the dogs try to hold on. They are so terrified they even fight each other,just really lashing out from fright!

A research Study done on carbon monoxide euthanasia:
This includes relative human data such as human reactions to different levels of carbon monoxide exposure. Pain & psychological effects & much more
This is an official court document of a gas chamber witness and euthanasia expert:
“According to the only study ever conducted on carbon monoxide gas chambers, a high percentage of adult dogs were observed struggling and in an agitated state prior to unconsciousness,”
Amazing Grace’s Story:
"the dog above her -- it's bodily fluids were dripping all over her," recalls Palpal-Latoc with tears in her eyes. "And she was cowering and scared and foaming at the mouth and trying to get out."
Testimony from Veterinarian Christian Anderson,:
“As the gas was pumped in, this very excited and anxious group started to
Vocalize what I can only call their distress, When bodies were removed the chamber was
Soiled with saliva, blood, and excrement.”
Dr. Deborah Cowan’s eye witness testimony:
The dogs are carried, or walked up a ramp and then are enclosed in this chamber. They are very scared and this discomfort can be viewed through the “windows”. When the CO is started the noise incites them into extreme agitation: trying to climb the walls, running back and forth, vocalizing. It takes several minutes for the agitation to stop, although there is much paddling and thrashing prior to their succumbing to the gas. The cats are put in cages that are then placed within the metal box. The cats become extremely agitated and thrash and scrabble as they try to get away from the “hissing” noise of the gas being administered. They vocalize to the extreme.
ACO Linda Couldry:
“Dogs cry out in fear and whine and growl and fight desperately to get out! Their bodies are trying to shut down and they don’t understand why. The cats climb the cart walls, meowing continuously, crying pitifully. Cats should not be put in a gas chamber with dogs, but since there are no standards and/or regulations enforced with respect to the use of the chamber, one can only guess what really goes on.”
Former ACO Ralph Gann:
Mr. Gann said, "If you can stand the screaming and hollering of the animals when they're fighting each other, trying to get out, then you got a bigger and a tougher heart than I have."
Gas Chamber Man:
In 40 minutes, I have to go back and unload the dead animals. I pray that none survived, which happens when I overstuff the chamber. I pull them out with thick gloves, and the smell of carbon monoxide makes me sick. So does the vomit and blood, and all the bowel movements. I pull them out, put them in plastic bags.
Rabbi Schlesinger then described in detail the pitiful cries of the dying dogs as they gasped for their last breaths, and their certain terror, all of which are indelibly etched in his memory after witnessing Macon’s inhumane procedure.
After the gassing, the presumably dead dogs were left in the chamber, unattended, for several hours. When Rabbi Schlesinger asked the person who had operated the chamber why the animals were left in the chamber all day, the man answered, “To be sure they’re dead.” The hideous experience ended sometime in the afternoon when a dump truck arrived and the contents of the chamber were simply dumped into the bed of the truck, transported a short distance to the landfill, and discarded like garbage
Kathy Selbrede’s story:
A little later Nathan asked me to stay in the Adoption Ward because the public was not allowed to see the removal of the bodies of the animals they had euthanized that morning – that removal process took more than 30 minutes
Story 2: Myshea Robinson in Macon
Cassie was soaked, and to make matters worse the back door to the shelter ward she was in was open with ice still on the ground outside from it snowing the day before. (All dogs and pens were wet.)
Her eyes were sunk back into her head. She was visibly sick. She was in the same pen with more than four other dogs, one visibly starved. She was the smallest one in the cage
