Ask your MP to sign EDM 193 and say NO to the use of stray cats and dogs in experiments!

14/06/2012

Join the BUAV campaign to oppose the UK Government’s plans to remove the current protection granted to stray domestic animals, such as cats and dogs, as it integrates the new EU Directive on animal experiments into UK legislation. 

If these new rules are imposed, the Government could allow the use of stray, lost or abandoned cats and dogs to be used in experiments and sentenced to a life in a UK laboratory.

An Early Day Motion with cross party support has today been tabled by Adrian Sanders MP in support of the BUAV campaign. Adrian told the BUAV:

“I'm shocked that the Government is considering removing the current protection given to our stray cats and dogs from being used in experiments. Losing a pet is distressing, but the idea that the animal could potentially end up in a laboratory is ghastly and unacceptable, and I urge the Government to reconsider.”

Please join us by writing to your MP today urging them to sign our Early Day Motion 193 opposing this appalling proposition.
