Whereas approximately 3 percent of all cats and dogs in the United States are gassed each year;

Whereas States permit local officials to gas stray cats and dogs;

Whereas many cats and dogs run away from their owners each year; and

Whereas many stray cats and dogs with owners are among those gassed each year: Now, therefore, be it

That the House of Representatives expresses its dissatisfaction that the practice of gassing stray cats and dogs with owners continues in the United States in the 21st century.
