Massachusetts is one step closer to ensuring that dogs and cats have the opportunity to live a life in a home as an adopted pets after their term in research has come to an end an opportunity that each of these dogs and cats deserve. Thank you to the Senate for passing An Act Protecting Research Animals (S.2624)!
S.2624 would require research institutions and product testing facilities to make healthy dogs and cats available for adoption instead of euthanizing them when they are no longer needed by the facility.
Currently, federal law regulates the care and use of research animals while they are in the laboratory, but does not offer any protection to the animal once the research project ends. Your voice is crucial in giving dogs and cats used for research a chance to live in loving homes.
Please take a moment to call your House representative(s) now. Look up your legislators' phone numbers. You can say, As your constituent who cares about the welfare of animals, I urge you to support S.2624 which would help facilitate the adoption of dogs and cats no longer needed for scientific research purposes.
