Real-life is­sue: Euthana­sia

Animal Scene - - ADVOCATE -

John and Jenny Gro­gan have Mar­ley eu­th­a­nized at the vet’s, believ­ing that is the kind­est thing they can do for their ail­ing fur baby. Euthana­sia, when done prop­erly (and not through a gun­shot or tam­bu­cho), is “pain­less, quick, and dig­ni­fied”, ac­cord­ing to Peo­ple for the Eth­i­cal Treat­ment of An­i­mals.

Af­ter pleas from lo­cal an­i­mal wel­fare orgs, the sec­tion of the Philip­pines’ An­i­mal Wel­fare Act al­low­ing tam­bu­cho-killing, or killing through the ex­haust pipe gassing sys­tem, was deleted in 2011, ac­cord­ing to The Philip­pine An­i­mal Wel­fare So­ci­ety (PAWS).
