senate Bill S. 2322

Should Animals Who Are Being Retired From Federal Labs Be Adoptable?

Argument in favor

Animals that are being retired from federal animal testing labs deserve the opportunity to live the rest of their lives out in loving homes. This bill would allow them that opportunity.

Stop ALL animal testing. There is no valid reason to torture animals for profit when so many alternatives are available.

As long is the animal is generally safe to be around people, why not. It is better then just killing them.

A chance for a good life in a loving environment far outweighs the senseless killing of these innocent animals that have suffered unmercifully. I am a supporter of White Coat Waste Project, PETA and others that abhor animal testing and cruelty and we have made progress with much more to be done.

Argument opposed

The federal government is phasing animal testing out in many facilities, recently ending canine testing at the VA and kitten testing at the USDA. In light of these changes in federal labs, it’s unclear how many — if any — animals will benefit from this legislation.

They should be taken to a refuge to live in peace The government will not tell the truth We do not know what testing was done We do not want the animals or any humans hurt

I know that some really softhearted people think this is a good idea, but honestly, these laboratory animals aren’t suitable to be pets. It’s better to put them down.

Ex-lab animals should be cared for by professionals (or at the very least, people who are trained and equipped to care for them) who understand the trauma these animals have experienced. I foresee ex-laboratory animals being abandoned by people and families who can’t deal with some of the psychological problems these animals will have.

    Yes, so long they are healthy and safe for adoption. But, why is legislation needed for this? Not that many years ago, this type of legislation would be unheard of. Congress would ask the executive branch agencies to just handle it. If they resisted, then there might be legislation or reconsideration of line item budgets. Oh yeah, back then our executive branch agencies and our legislators operated with conscience and a notion of basic right and wrong. Oh for the good ol’ days before hyper-partisan polarization of our government- before people learned how to manipulate the masses with Facebook, Fox News, PAC’s and attack-ad politics- you know- before any of that stuff existed.

    Of course the animals should be adoptable to qualified homes and animal lovers alike. I was actually gonna start a sanctuary where animals could live and be happy as they should be and adopted. But my friends are like "Duggy, you KNOW good and well that you wouldn't want to let ONE go to anyone else, you'd end up with a GD Zoo! And they are 100% correctamundo😉 It is disgusting and appalling how we treat animals amongst us. They SHOULD have a clean life as we should. You realize if we went to a distant planet and there was life there. Let's say we've never seen a whale or what have you. You KNOW damn well we would spend A SHIT-TON to find a way to communicate with them? A SHIT-TON, and how respectful we'd be? WAKE UP! We have them here amongst us but we shit on them literally! We dump our sewage, dangerous chemicals, nuclear waste and we even drill for oil IN THEIR HOUSE!! We can learn to be a better living organism than we are, man😎✌️ Tell me, how many of you would like for me to take a shit and drop a few drops of oil in your bathtub?🤔 Hmmm, all I seem to hear is GD crickets! We need to look at ourselves and what we're doing to life around us. We CAN and SHOULD do better than what we're doing and we ALL KNOW THIS. And if by chance you're one who doesn't know, realize OR care.. then maybe it's YOU who we should be doing tests on! PuffPuffPass💨✌️

    We depend on animal studies to improve our lives. We need to be good shepherds of these creatures.

    There are so many issues-trump’s concentration camps, his cruel racist behavior and cruel racist policies, trump’s lies and trump’s obstruction of justice, the GOP pushing debt to exorbitantly high levels, a looming recession due to trump’s stupidity in trade and foreign policy, the earth is burning! Climate change is threatening our way of life, we need to protect our natural resources, parks and lands - and reduce pollution- there are so many huge issues! And we need Elections security! Protect our elections! I would like to see less animal-testing and definitely support humane treatment of animals. However I believe our nation and our congress has so many huge issues - I feel time and attention must be focused on the huge major threats facing our nation, especially those I have mentioned here.

    Not sure. Depends on the research that was done and the possible long term effects of that research. Think carefully.

    If these animals have been shown to be safe for adoption I’m ok with them being put up for adoption.

    Why is this even a question-there shouldn’t be lab animals but if it is a must then we owe it to do the right thing!

    Yes. And they should be treated/cured of any diseases or injuries at no cost to the adoptee prior to adoption. However, unfortunately there may be situations where the animal just isn't suited to be placed with someone because of the tests done, in which case euthanasia would be the only humane choice. It would be best if there was no testing on living creatures to begin with. These animals need loving forever homes.
