Show Your Support for the Pet Safety and Protection Act!
I had NO idea people were rounding up animals to sell to research laboratories! Apparently some research labs out there will take animals from just any random person that comes off the street? Yeah, that’s gotta stop. Please read the message below from the ASPCA, then click the link following the message to show your support for the Pet Safety and Protection Act!
The federal Pet Safety and Protection Act would prohibit Class B Dealers and unlicensed individuals from selling dogs and cats to research laboratories.
Class B Dealers are people who collect dogs and cats to sell to the research industry. They sometimes obtain their animals through illegal or unethical means, such as by responding to â€œfree to good homeâ€ ads in newspapers, falsifying records to keep the true origins of the animals unknown and stealing pets kept outside in yards. They also buy animals in bulk from â€œbunchers,â€ whose methods are even more questionable.
Eliminating Class B Dealers will also take away the profit motive of bunchers, providing a much-needed safety net to ensure beloved pets are not stolen or acquired under false pretenses and sold to facilities that test on animals.
