IDA: Support Bill to Stop Abductions of Animal Companions

Monday, June 12th, 2006

A quick action alert from In Defense of Animals:

Support Bill to Stop Abductions of Animal Companions

The Pet Safety and Protection Act, H.R. 5229, would amend the Animal Welfare Act to prohibit Class B Animal Dealers from selling cats and dogs to research labs, as well as making it illegal for research labs to buy cats and dogs from such dealers. This will prevent strays or stolen family pets, and those acquired through deception, from being sold to labs. Please take action to urge Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and Senator Charles Schumer to co-sponsor this important bill. Also please Tell-A-Friend who also lives in New York about this issue and donate to IDA so that we can continue working for animals.

The entire alert, along with a sample letter, is available here.
