Did you know that every year, countless homeless dogs and cats end up being sold into the animal testing industry?
That’s right—as if abandoned, lost, or stolen animals don’t have it hard enough living on the streets or in animal shelters, they sometimes end up on laboratory tables to be used in disease experiments, chemical tests, and more.
Across the United States each year, a small handful of Class B animal dealers—also known as “random source” dealers—acquire dogs and cats who may have been stolen from yards, picked up on the streets, taken from animal shelters, or obtained fraudulently from well-intentioned people who place “free to a good home” ads.
Take action NOW! Click here to send a message to your U.S. senators and representatives asking them to support the Pet Safety and Protection Act of 2011 (H.R. 2256), which would prohibit Class B dealers from selling animals to laboratories.
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
