Success: Beagles Saved From Painful Experimentation

Target: Bill Stanley, VA State Senator

Goal: Support ban on sale of dogs and cats to laboratories.

A beagle-breeding farm in Cumberland, Virginia recently ignited outrage when an undercover investigation revealed alleged repeated violations of the Animal Welfare Act. Dogs were reportedly kept in sweltering hot conditions for hours, deprived of food, and subjected to painful and unnecessary medical procedures. Thousands of dogs were at the facility, and many have been put up for adoption. While these animals are safe, countless numbers are still at risk. Just like the place detailed in this ForceChange petition, the breeding facility currently under fire bred animals for eventual laboratory experimentation. The calls for reform at a state-wide level have been answered.

Governor Glenn Youngkin signed a legislative package drafted in response to the Cumberland incident known as the Beagle Bills. These newly enacted laws ban any sale of dogs or cats for experimentation. Moreover, they strengthen standards for breeders to stay in business and toughen penalties for Animal Welfare Act violations.

Sign the petition below to thank one of the legislators instrumental in codifying these needed protections into state law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Stanley,

The alleged pervasive animal cruelty that took place at the Envigo breeding facility presented the spark for reform. Thank you for lighting the match and carrying the torch over the finish line. The passage of the Beagle Bills will help ensure a better life not only for these innocent animals but for all four-legged Virginians.

Your long-standing commitment to animal welfare issues is appreciated by everyone who values the lives of these vulnerable living beings.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. These poor dogs do not deserve this – any place and person that is still testing on poor defenseless animals should be charged with animal abuse because it is!!!!

    This is NOT in the name of science – it is torture & abuse!!!!

  2. Any scumbag who is involved in animal abuse must have the death penalty implemented and nothing less!! A slow and agonising death for these evil cretins is essential!! OH YESSS!!!!

  3. “Many” have been put up for adoption??? What’s happened to the rest of them?!
