Amend the Animal Welfare Act

Hello my fellow rat lovers! I started a petition to add rats and mice to the Animal Welfare Act. Rats and mice makeup a whooping 95% of animals in scientific research studies. Without adequate protection, these little critters are susceptible to unwarranted abuse. Due to a lack of regulation, scientists are allowed to withhold anesthesia during experimental surgeries. That is only an example of all of the harmful things these scientists do.

Please! Sign, Email confirm, and Share! <3 Let's make a difference in these rats lives.

If we reach 100,000 signatures it goes to the White House!

I tried to look up the petition, but change.org & petition site had it closed.

Would you please type out address? We hold new members to a certain number of posts before adding links, but you can type the address.
We've had many members involved in rat rescues

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

This is a great idea! It's shameful that rodents don't get even the minimal protections from the Animal Welfare Act.

Peasant (1963-1972) and Fluffy (1970s?-1982- I think of you as 'Ambrose' now)- Your spirits outshone some humans I have known. Be happy forever.
