Support the Pet Safety and Protection Act

Every year in this country, helpless pets wind up in research facilities where they are used in painful tests and experiments.

Laboratories purchase these pets from Class B dealers: individuals who acquire dogs and cats from "random sources," such as auctions, flea markets, or "bunchers" -- unlicensed individuals who have been documented acquiring pets by theft, misrepresentation (e.g. responding to "free to a good home" ads), and/or other questionable means. It's time to put a stop to Class B dealers.

Please make a brief, polite phone call to your U.S. Representative and urge co-sponsorship of the Pet Safety and Protection Act, which would make it illegal for Class B dealers of random source dogs and cats to operate. Look up your Representative's phone number here. You can say: "I would like you to please co-sponsor H.R. 2224, the Pet Safety and Protection Act."

After making your phone call (please do not skip that crucial step!), personalize and submit the letter in the form below to automatically send a follow-up message. We encourage you to add your own thoughts or comments in the editable portion so your representative knows how important this issue is to you.

Please support H.R. 2224: Pet Safety and Protection Act

Dear Representative,

I strongly support the Pet Safety and Protection Act, championed by Representative Doyle (D-PA). If you have not already done so, please become a cosponsor of this important bill.

It's time to stop funneling pets into experimentation. I hope I can count on your support of this critical legislation for dogs and cats.
