Tell Congress to Stop the Use of Animals for Testing

A record number of federal bills has been introduced this year that would have a positive impact on animals used in research. Unfortunately, none are under active consideration—no markups and no hearings mean that there is no progress toward passage. Please let your U.S. legislators know that you strongly support efforts to reduce and eliminate the use of animals in research, testing and education. Please call your U.S. legislative offices (two Senators, one Representative) and tell them that you support the following bills:


U.S. Senators

Personal Care Products Safety Act, S 726
Ensure personal care products sold to consumers are safe and cruelty free.

Kittens in Traumatic Testing Ends Now (KITTEN) Act, S 708
End the use of cats by USDA for experiments that cause pain or stress to the animals. 

 
U.S. Representative

Preventing Unkind and Painful Procedures and Experiments on Respected Species (PUPPERS) Act, HR 1155
Prohibit the Secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA) from conducting medical research that causes significant pain or distress to dogs.

Kittens in Traumatic Testing Ends Now (KITTEN) Act, HR 1622
End the use of cats by USDA for experiments that cause pain or stress to the animals.

Humane Retirement Act, HR 2850
Require federally-funded institutions to adopt out “suitable” cats and dogs after research.
