Name: An Act Protecting Research Animals
Bill Number: H 3232/S 489
Healthy cats and dogs deserve to have the
opportunity to be adopted into loving homes after being used for research,
testing or education purposes, instead of being euthanized. This bill would
require research institutions and product testing facilities to offer cats and
dogs used in research to an animal shelter or rescue organization for adoption
if the animal is deemed appropriate for adoption. In addition, this bill limits
the amount of time any dog or cat can be used for research or testing to not
more than two years.
hearing took place on July 11 before the Joint Committee on Public Health, but
no action has yet been taken.

Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to ask for your support of H 3232/S 489, which would require research institutions and product testing facilities to make healthy dogs and cats available for adoption through an animal shelter or rescue organization instead of euthanizing them when they are no longer needed by the facility. This bill would also restrict to two years the amount of time that an individual dog or cat can be used for research or testingToo often animals used in research are regarded as disposable commodities to be discarded when the research or testing is done. Please support this legislation to allow the adoption of healthy cats and dogs into loving homes.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
