Buzz Petition

The issue of animals used in cruel laboratory experiments has been at the forefront in the fight for animal rights for many decades. Although small rodents like mice and rabbits or non-human primates like chimpanzees are readily associated with animal experiments, dogs, especially beagles, are very commonly used for an array of cruel experiments.

After these animals are used by the labs, they are merely discarded like objects. As awareness of the cruelty of animal experiments has grown, so have laws begun to slowly change to help these animals. Several states have instated legislation commonly known as the “Beagle Bill” that requires laboratories to put retired lab animals up for adoption after research is complete. However, many states, including Maryland, have yet to instate such a law.

A petition on Care2 addressed to the Maryland General Assembly and the presidents of Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland (both universities that oppose such legislation), is urging the state to pass a “Beagle Bill.” To clarify, this type of legislation does not ban the testing of animals, it merely requires labs to put retired animals up for adoption.

If you would like to see Maryland get on board with this new movement, please take a moment to sign the petition.

And please share this with your network to gain more support for lab animals!
