Heart Stick Euthanisa, or as referred to in animal shelters “Heart Stick” is jamming a large needle without any pre-sedative directly into a shelter dog’s heart. It is a frightening and painful way to die.

This is a real picture of a shelter dog being Heart Stick euthanized. Shelters generally euthanize dogs and cats one day during the week. A million dogs and cats are euthanized every year in America’s shelters. Millions more across the globe.

Animals are sentient beings, meaning just like human animals they feel pain, sense fear, know if they are going to be harmed, and like us want to live and die a violent death.

This cruel inhumane practice of killing shelter dogs without a sedative, by long needle lethal injection into a wide-awake dogs heart must be banned in America

Steven Monahan, Founder Green Pets America Charities

Heart Stick Euthanasia is a rarely discussed topic on how some shelter dogs and cats are cruelly and inhumanely killed in the US in animal shelters. We think this must be exposed, openly be discussed, and banned in America. That is why we advocate and regularly educate and write on Heart Stick Euthanasia. Until this is barbaric practice is banned in America some local animal shelters will continue to practice and turn a blind eye to this inhumane practice.

The Green Pets America Charities group of humane societies has been researching and educating on Heart Stick Euthanasia at America’s animal shelters for years. Heart Stick euthanasia is done by county shelters to save money. It is cheaper for the shelter to not humanely sedate the dog, but euthanize the dog in one step, with a long steel needle jabbed straight into a fully conscious frightened, panicked dogs’ heart, as the frightened dog tries to escape the attendant’s grasp.

What is Heart Stick Euthanasia

Heart Stick euthanasia is particularly brutal because many times, the dog moves, and the long needle misses the heart, piercing another organ. In that case, they do it again. If they euthanize a group of different size and weight dogs at once, each syringe may not have enough poison in the syringe, and the dog does not die immediately, so they must kill him again.
