    Detailed Information:
    It is hard to imagine that dogs and cats are still being used as expendable tools in lethal experiments. It is a difficult fact that some of these animals were once accustomed to life in a human home and are now confined within a laboratory cage. Four states in the U.S.—Iowa, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Utah—still legally require that publicly funded shelters and pounds provide dogs and/or cats to institutions for experimental or educational purposes, and other states allow it. Several states have no law either way. In some states, the shelter cannot make surrendered companion animals available for adoption, but must instead provide them directly to the institution requesting animals.

    This horrible practice is a small, but troubling facet of the animal experimentation industry.
