Stop experimenting on dogs in labs
Dogs in the 1900’s were loved by their owners. They were considered family and were never abandoned throughout their entire life. Recently, the appreciation and value of dogs has gone down and can be seen in the general public. Dogs used to be something special and a gift but for some in day today, they are becoming objects and a burden. Besides the animal’s lovers, people are now getting rid of their pets by letting them go in the street and some even kill their dogs and throwing them in trash bags where alleyways. There even have been some cases of animal abuse, but they don’t much attention because of the value of dogs has gone downhill. In this petition we are advocating to end the use of dogs in experiments in labs.
 
            Growing up in Los Angeles you never really hear about dogs being used as test subjects because it is too extreme for a kid. When a problem never gets brought up then the problem is never dealt with. According to a PETA, an investigation they conducted on a professional laboratory and research center they found out that dogs and cats were being bought from local shelters and being used in experiments. PETA states that in the investigation they found out that “Many dogs had raw, oozing sores from being forced to live constantly on wet concrete, often in pools of their own urine and waste.” Dogs breathe, see, and feel pain, but what makes it okay to treat them like any replaceable object. This is inhumane living conditions for a dog and very cruel towards them. Dogs are meant to be roaming free outside guarding their territory and protecting it from any possible harm. These dogs are caged up with their feces and getting infected because of their unsanitary living conditions waiting to be used as a test subject. Dogs are named their owners best friend for a reason, because they connect to their owners and know when there is trouble. This title they have actually means something, but it is being taken away by society. Dogs are being taken advantaged by the people and big corporations because they don’t have enough rights to protect them. Humans have the constitutions and other articles to protect them from any abuse, but dogs have limited articles like the animal welfare act of 1966 which only regulate the transportation, sale and handling of domestic animals. Dogs help out humans as much as they can just to be thrown out later when they are useless to their owner and are abandoned as simples as an object. There is no such thing as a bad dog without bad owners. Dogs are raised by their owners and pick up habits from their owners as they grow, in other words, they are a resemblance of their owners. For example, in dogfights the owners force dogs to be aggressive and build that characteristic into them. Dogs are normally friendly, but when they have a negative owner that is when they become a ‘bad’ dog. There is so much abuse towards dogs that you see it even in movies but merely enough is done to stop the abuse.
 
            We can help dogs and protect them from abuse by shutting down laboratories that uses dogs to experiment their products and give them a life with free from suffering. Stopping the use of dogs in laboratories will help lower the abuse of dogs and help spread awareness of animal abuse.  Help dogs live a life free from suffering by signing this petition and as we gather on 20,000 signatures this petition will be sent to Charles Rivet Laboratories to stop the use of dogs in laboratories. The Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act does not require laboratories to test their products on dogs so why should Charles Rivet Laboratories keep on testing on dogs. How about increasing research time on a product and making sure it has a high success rate instead of just experimenting any little progress they have made in their products on dogs. Just like these labs are creating new products they should also try out new ways to test their products. Together we can keep moving towards a peaceful life and free of abuse.
