Retirement and Adoption Program at Queen’s

In December, Queen’s Animal Defence submitted a proposal to Queen’s University for establishing a retirement and adoption program for animals used in research at the University. There are many precedents for a program of this kind, at Guelph and other institutions. Earlier this year, Minnesota governor Mark Dayton signed into law an act requiring that publicly funded research facilities, including universities, release dogs and cats to animal rescue groups upon completion of a study, rather than killing them. Universities opposed this legislation, but the Beagle Freedom Project and the elected representatives of the State of Minnesota prevailed. Read about this story here. Now let’s make this change at Queen’s! Please sign our petition here
