Victory! Utah Animal Shelter Abandons Pound Seizure
On March 27, Utah’s governor signed a bill to amend an archaic state law so that government-run animal shelters will no longer be forced upon request to sell homeless dogs and cats to laboratories for use in cruel and deadly experiments. Yesterday, the director of Davis County Animal Services—the shelter that was supplying the University of Utah (the U) with most of the dogs and cats it was using in experiments—announced that the shelter will no longer participate in pound seizure, noting, “Now that we have the option, it’s not law, so we decided against it.”
