The Home Office: Compulsory retirement of ex laboratory dogs to approved homes

    1. Petition by

      Unite to CARE

To enforce the three R's by reducing pain,suffering, distress and lasting harm by a compulsory retirement scheme of laboratory dogs instead of unnecessary euthanasia at the end of their commercial life and are retired to approved homes instead. Provisions for this to occur were made in the Animals Scientific Procedures Act 1986 with a clear policy for re homing however this has never been introduced and was on a voluntary basis therefore this should now be replaced with a mandatory obligation to retire the dogs once they have finished being of value to the researcher society. This should be enforced as part of the issuing of a licence for any project with the need for euthanasia rather than re homing being an exception not standard practice and with full explanations provided.

      Animals should NEVER be used for research EVER!! Beagles are such amazing dogs. This is just so sickening.

      Despicable people involved in this torture and murder must be punished, fined, imprisoned, pay for their own extensive psychiatric care and do long hours of charity or they will continue this abuse, torture, and murder. Humans must strive to be compassionate caregivers, protectors and stewards of the planet and its beings. Helping not harming. To create an environment where all sentient beings are treated with compassion and respect. Never to die needlessly or cruelly. These vulnerable, innocent beings have the right to live “cruelty-free” in peace.
