Government Plans to Use Stray Dogs and Cats in Experiments

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.

BUAV have launched an appeal asking for everyone to write to their MP urging them to sign up to an Early Day Motion that has been lodged.  You can find out more information on their website.
