Support A3274

I am a concerned constituent in your district and urge your support for A3274, (Asm. Vainieri Huttle), an Act requiring institutions of higher education to offer cats and dogs no longer used for educational, research, or scientific purposes to animal rescue organizations for adoption.

I firmly believe that whenever possible dogs and cats should get a chance at a normal home life after what they have endured in testing for our products, drugs, and curiosities.

I am a concerned constituent in your district and urge your support for A3274, (Asm. Vainieri Huttle), an Act requiring institutions of higher education to offer cats and dogs no longer used for educational, research, or scientific purposes to animal rescue organizations for adoption.

I firmly believe that whenever possible dogs and cats should get a chance at a normal home life after what they have endured in testing for our products, drugs, and curiosities.

This act simply facilitates a relationship between New Jersey research laboratories and registered non-profit rescue organizations so that when an experiment ends and animals are no longer needed, they are given a chance of life after the lab with a New Jersey family.

Currently there are no federal or state laws that cover the post-research treatment of these animals. In the last five years California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, New York, and Rhode Island have all passed similar legislation resulting in many animals adopted into loving families.

Please support A3274 when it comes before you. It embodies compassion and common sense. These animals are no different than our own family companion animals and as a taxpayer who funds much of this research, I would like to see them properly cared for. This law would proudly set a new gold standard for research ethics and animal welfare.

Please vote for A3274. Lives are literally depending on it.
