Dear Representative ,

This legislation would require dogs and cats used as research subjects and not euthanized at the end of the experiment (at the discretion of the research facility), to be adopted out through state-registered animal protection shelters in Michigan. These local organizations are experienced in conducting behavioral and medical evaluations to ensure animals are placed in the best possible home environment.

Thirteen states across the United States, including Minnesota, Illinois, and Virginia, have instituted successful adoption laws for dogs, cats and other animals. These adoption programs, in addition to benefitting the animals, can decrease stress and improve morale among laboratory workers.
