Last week, more than two dozen bipartisan lawmakers launched a first-ever effort urging all federal agencies to retire dogs, cats and primates at the end of wasteful and cruel government experiments. Congress members on both sides of the aisles took to social media to express their support for the campaign:

Tell Congress to retire lab animals and #GiveThemBack to taxpayers at the end of government experiments!

Please stop this repeated crazy testing
Don’t fund anymore pain
With all the technology we have at our fingertips there is no reason any of this is happening
Just GREED

Please allow retirement of as many lab animals as possible.
