Great news! The Pet Safety and Protection Act (PSPA) is off to a strong start!

Earlier this week, in both the House and the Senate, the PSPA was reintroduced video von facebooken kostenlos!

S. 714, the senate version, was introduced by Senator Daniel Akaka of Hawaii. H.R. 1280, the house version, was introduced by Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania and had 22 co-sponsors kinder youtube herunterladen.

The bill will amend the Animal Welfare Act to ensure that all dogs and cats used by research facilities are obtained legally. Specifically, it will make Class “B” dealers an illegal source of animals for medical research laboratories avira kostenlos downloaden und installieren.

The United States Department of Agriculture licenses animal dealers; anyone selling animals to laboratories (or selling more than 24 dogs or cats per year at the wholesale level) must be licensed waldgeräusche herunterladen. Class “A” dealers maintain their own breeding colonies while Class “B” dealers obtain animals from “random sources” – meaning they can legally be obtained from pounds, shelters and people that have bred and raised the animals themselves laptop kamera software kostenlos downloaden. However, investigations have revealed that dealers illegally acquire animals from “bunchers,” who steal animals from backyards, cars and through “free to good home” ads converter german for free.

The current system, in which the USDA regulates the dealers via the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) is not working – as the USDA is unable (or unwilling) to enforce the AWA and the AWA, as it currently exists, does not provide adequate protection to America’s companion animals shieldwall herunterladen.

Sample Letter

I urge you to co-sponor The Pet Safety and Protection Act, S. 714/H.R. 1280, a bill that would amend the Animal Welfare Act to ensure dogs and cats used in medical research are obtained legally. The current system is fundamentally flawed and the only way to ensure that stolen companion animals don’t end up in medical research is by passing the Pet Safety and Protection Act.

LCA Busts Largest “B” Dealer

Dealing Dogs (banner)

In early 2002, a Last Chance for Animals undercover investigator infiltrated Class “B” dealer C.C. Baird’s Martin Creek Kennels in Williford, Arkansas and acquired over 70 hours of video surveillance detailing an overwhelming amount of animal cruelty, abuse, neglect and unsanitary conditions.

The documentation gathered during the undercover investigation was handed over to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, which resulted in the largest multi-agency (federal, state and local) investigation of animal abuse in U.S. history. Baird was subsequently charged with hundreds of violations of the Animal Welfare Act and felony charges of money laundering involving the sale of dogs and cats to laboratories with false acquisition records, to which he pleaded guilty. His Class “B” license was permanently revoked in 2005.

LCA’s undercover investigation is chronicled in the HBO documentary, “Dealing Dogs.”
