    Dog Survives Gas Chamber

    If his dog survived the gas chamber, the air in NJ will be fine for him.


    Dog Survives Gas Chamber At Alabama Shelter, Is Sent To New Jersey For Adoption

    A 20-pound beagle named Daniel surprised animal control officials after escaping death in a gas chamber, reports the Associated Press.

    After no one claimed the stray dog at a shelter in Florence, Alabama, Daniel and 17 other unadopted pets were sent to the gas chamber, notes the New Jersey Star Ledger.

    But after 17 minutes, Daniel was the only pet to miraculously survive, said animal control officer Vincent Grasso of Florence, Alabama in an interview with NBC.

    The dog has now found refuge in Rockaway, New Jersey, after Linda Schiller, founder of Eleventh Hour Rescue arranged for the dog to be flown up north with the help of Pilots N Paws, a network of registered pilots who voluntarily relocate animals to rescue groups, reports The New Jersey Star Ledger.

    Florence city spokesman Phil Stevenson says no one is sure why Daniel survived, but cites three animals who've survived the gas chamber over the past 12 years or so, reports AP.

    The Humane Society estimates that between six and eight million animals are brought to shelters every year, and three to four million of them are euthanized in the gas chambers.

    Schiller is hopeful Daniel's survival will raise awareness of the campaign to stop gassing unadopted pets. Many states have banned gas chambers for euthanizing pets, including Alabama. But that law won't come into effect until next year, reports NBC.

    How does the saying go? It is not the size of the dog in the fight but the fight inside the dog. This dog is a fighter.

    I thought a "gas chamber" in Alabama was 2 guys in a single cab pickup engaging in a farting contest after eating boiled cabbage,that is one lucky dog

    I hate seeing animals in this situation. I cant imagine what that poor dog had to endure. A life of neglect, then the gas chamber. Its disgusting. That dog knew he was being put down. I wish I had the means to save all of those poor animals. All they want to do is run around, have some fun, and love somebody. It just sucks.

    I read the article in our newspaper the other day, and at least they didn't try to gas it a 2nd time. They said they got numerous calls on people wanting to adopt it. So, why were they gassing it ?

    Glad he survived it all , and got a home.

    ^ Funny how that happens. Theres billions of animals waiting to be adopted, but not many people are breaking down the doors at the shelters. If one particular dog is "profiled" or advertised....everyone wants to adopt it. Either way its just sad

    I saw today where hundreds of people want to adopt Daniel.
    Who wouldn't want a beagle? I had one and they are great people dogs.
    There was that barking at the moon thing that drove me crazy, though.
