Signed. Thanks Cher!
" Lost or homeless animals should either be put up for adoption or humanely euthanized, not released to institutions for experimentation."
I don't feel they should be euthanized either! The SPCA here in Cali. and I believe all over the U.S., has a rule that a pet can be euthanized after only 9 days, if the pet owner can't bail their pet out because of the very high cost.

International signatures aren't allowed - so lemme just say how much I think this law is a total SHAME! In my country France, this could never happen, thanks to our SPA (Animals Protection Society) .

Thanks, Cher... Signed and Shared on FB.

I'm from NYC but signed it with a MN address. You can use this address: 1990 East Shore Drive Maplewood, MN 55109 or just Google any apartment rentals in the state of Minnesota. Out-of-towners do not have much pull unlike constituents.

Our nation's & Minnesota's current shelter system is broken & in need of an overhaul. How could a 'shelter' give the animals it's supposed to protect to an experiment? How can they keep killing these homeless animals when effective solutions are available for all to review? ( Learn more at the No Kill Advocacy Center.)

Animal experimentation must be stopped and obtaining them from a shelter is appalling.
