Unfortunately it is legal to test on animals.
One of the most commonly used breeds is the beagle. These dogs are often used in surgical experiments and toxicology tests. The people using animals for testing like the beagle because they are small dogs, friendly and docile and can be easily manipulated. It is a fact that animals in labs are treated as "subjects." This is why they are given numbers, not names. The laboratory will do anything to save a dime, so they will not use anesthesia or pain control unless necessary for the particular test. The dogs are not given names in order to detach the relationship so that the technicians will not feel any love or emotion for these animals. Frequently, vocal cords are cut so the animals cannot cry or scream in pain. Most laboratories never allow the animals out of their cages.
It is my hope that this petition will help to put an end to using beagles for vivisection and cruel animal experiments.
Thank you for signing this petition.
