Protect Your Companion Animal from Being Used as a Research Tool

Minnesota’s pound seizure law requires that publicly funded pounds and shelters turn over unclaimed animals for experimentation after a five-day holding period if requested by a research facility. MN Statute 35.71 states “However, if a tag affixed to the animal or a statement by the animal’s owner after the animal’s seizure specifies that the animal may not be used for research, the animal must not be made available to any institution…” Stop by ARC today and purchase a tag so your companion animal is protected should he or she ever be lost.
