The Beagle Freedom LAW!
History was made today. Minnesota has become the first state in the U.S. and first political body in the world to mandate that laboratory dogs and cats be adopted when the research is over. The once far-fetched idea that these animals deserve a life after the labs has fast become a public expectation and now is officially a law.
This law is simple, compassionate, and common-sense. If a dog or cat is used in a tax-payer funded research experiment and is healthy at its end the lab must offer them up to public adoption through a rescue organization like Beagle Freedom Project. No federal or state laws offer any protection to these animals when the research is over and the standard operating procedure for most labs was to summarily euthanize them… Until today.
