Tell North Utah Valley Animal Shelter: Stop Selling Homeless Animals for Experimentation

This petition made change with 3,600 supporters!


Dogs and cats at the North Utah Valley Animal Shelter (NUVAS) are ready for their forever homes. Yet the shelter has betrayed the trust of the animals in its care. NUVAS actually sells homeless dogs and cats to the University of Utah’s laboratories for animal experiments.

Until early 2010, Utah maintained an archaic law that mandated that public shelters give strays and other unwanted animals to research. The new law, H.B. 107, means pound seizure is now discretionary and all shelters – except NUVAS – have abandoned the cruel practice.
