Really this article must inspire people to take action locally. If you dont get involved in the legislative process to make owners responsible for providing a good home for the family pets then there is no way situations and subjects like mentioned above will ever change. Animal research stems from a prevailing attitude that pet owners are not responsible or held accountable in any enforceable way. If we cant enforce the foundation of these principles, there is no way we will enforce a second level or secondary issue as animal testing or research.
I myself boycott all companies that participate in animal testing. Procter and Gamble is enemy number 1. They make Tide, Folger’s, and many household items. You have to start reading the labels.
