After a great deal of work, another state (make this the sixth!) has passed the Beagle Freedom Law. The great news was announced to followers of the Beagle Freedom Project, the agency which negotiates with laboratories to secure the release of dogs (and other animals) who have been used for research.
According to the organization, Illinois is the latest state to pass the law – they wrote:
This law means that laboratories that use dogs and cats in experiments must now offer them up to public adoption.
Passage of the law, which will give laboratory animals the chance to enjoy a normal, happy life, didn’t happen without a fight. BFP wrote:
It took countless calls, emails, letters, and visits to Springfield to make this happen – but the Beagle Freedom community did not relent and would not give up. The opposition got ugly and we all were collectively challenged to “fight like hell” – and we did!
It’s a fight that was worth the effort – please share this amazing news with other animal lovers!!
