Illinois just became the 6th state to pass the Beagle Freedom Law, ensuring the victims of animal experimentation have a legal right to be rescued.

After three years of lobbying, rallies, phone calls, emails, petitions and a lot of press, the "Research Dog and Cat Adoption Act" was just signed into law by the Governor.

Thank you to everyone for your time, talent, and determination. Thank you to the indominatable Senator Linda Holmes, Representative Margo McDermed and all the compassionate co-sponsors who made this bill a reality.
