U.S. government agencies experiment on over 30,000 dogs, cats, monkeys and other regulated animals each year with our tax dollars. Many of these animals are healthy at the end of experiments, but virtually all of them are killed because most agencies do not have policies allowing their retirement to rescues or sanctuaries. This means that taxpayers are footing the bill for the killing of perfectly adoptable animals.

The Animal Freedom from Testing, Experiments and Research (AFTER) Act — also known as Violet's Law — would require federal agencies to enact policies allowing for the retirement of animals no longer needed in taxpayer-funded experimentation. Act now to urge Congress to pass Violet’s Law!
