End the agony of innocent animals subjected to cruel experiments — ensure a future free from suffering for our furry friends.


In laboratories across the United States, dogs and cats endure unimaginable suffering. Subjected to painful experiments funded by taxpayer dollars, these animals face distress and agony with no end in sight1. But there is hope on the horizon.

The Preventing Animal Abuse and Waste Act (PAAW Act) is a beacon of light for these voiceless creatures2. Sponsored by Rep. Nancy Mace, this bipartisan legislation aims to put an end to the cruel practices that have plagued our nation's laboratories for far too long3.

Why We Must Act

The reality of animal testing is grim. Thousands of dogs and other animals are locked away in labs, enduring excruciating experiments without relief4. The suffering they endure is heartbreaking, and it's time for us to take a stand.

Animals deserve better. They deserve to live free from pain and fear, to experience kindness and compassion. The PAAW Act is our chance to make that a reality1.

How You Can Help

We cannot stand idly by while animals suffer in silence. It's up to us to speak out and demand change. By supporting the PAAW Act, you can be a voice for the voiceless2.

Join us in calling on Congress to pass this crucial legislation. Sign our petition to Rep. Nancy Mace and let your voice be heard. Together, we can put an end to animal cruelty and pave the way for a brighter future for all beings3.

The Petition:

Dear Rep. Nancy Mace,

We, the undersigned, urge you to stand firm in your support of the Preventing Animal Abuse and Waste Act (PAAW Act). This vital legislation represents a beacon of hope for countless animals suffering in laboratories across the country.

Animals subjected to cruel experimentation deserve our compassion and protection. They experience pain, fear, and distress, yet their plight often goes unnoticed. The PAAW Act seeks to change this by prohibiting federal funding for research that causes significant harm to dogs and cats.

Granting animals freedom from such inhumane practices is not only a moral imperative but also a reflection of our commitment to justice and compassion. By championing the PAAW Act, you are paving the way for a brighter future where animals are treated with dignity and respect.

We urge you to continue your efforts in support of the PAAW Act and lead the charge towards a more humane world for all beings.

Sincerely,
