Thousands of dogs, cats, primates and other animals are confined inside government labs for wasteful and cruel experimentation every year. Many of these animals die during the testing. Disturbingly, virtually all of the animals who manage to survive these experiments are killed, even when they are healthy enough to live happy lives in loving homes or animal sanctuaries. Official estimates from the European Union suggest that, in 2017, labs in the EU killed off 12.6 million animals before they were ever used in studies.

The sad truth is that labs simply find it more convenient to kill the poor animals when they are done using them for experiments. “It’s cruel and unnecessary to euthanize dogs, cats, and other animals in federal research labs that are healthy enough to be adopted out and live happy lives. These animals deserve a second chance,” said Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC). Sign this petition to demand that Germany put an end to these horrific mass culls of “excess” laboratory animals in Germany!
