Signatures Needed To Help Kittens Who Have Been Killed For Experiments Funded With Taxpayer Money

One hundred dead kittens a year, that’s the price we are paying for a taxpayer-funded experiment that feeds kittens infected meats and then monitors their response. The kittens barely get a chance at life, as the experiment uses cats that are less than three months old.

According to a shocking exposé by White Coat Waste Project, the majority of the kittens are perfectly healthy, even after being forced to eat spoiled meat. Unfortunately, after the kittens are no longer considered “useful,” lab workers kill them.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has tried to defend themselves by saying the number of kittens reportedly killed in the tests has been overestimated. But, even if one kitten dies, it is too many. There is something very wrong when the U.S. government is trying to infect poor helpless animals, and then, if by some miracle they survive, they are killed anyway.

The lab conducting the cruel tests is located in Maryland, who just last month passed the “Beagle Freedom Bill.” The law that requires all labs to work with willing animal rescue organizations to find homes for pets once they are no longer needed. The bill also protects cats.

However, the Beagle Freedom Bill may take time to go into effect and these hundreds of kittens need our help today. That’s why Care2 is calling on the USDA lab in Beltsville, Maryland, to immediately stop euthanizing them and re-home the kittens instead.

Please sign this Care2 petition to demand that the USDA stop experimenting and killing these poor kittens. SIGN HERE!
