Our pets are being sold to research laboratories and under the current law, they are not fully protected.
Class B dealers and unlicensed animal dealers are not held accountable for where they obtain cats and dogs they sell to labs. Some of these dealers look for free pet ads, falsify records and steal pets from owners yards which they then sell for experimentation. If you tie your dog outside a store without supervision, it is not safe from these unscrupulous dealers.
The U.S. Pet Safety and Protection Act would prevent these dealers from selling selling pets to laboratories. Write and/or call your congressman to make this bill a priority in 2011 and send it to the President to sign into law.
