Freedom for Research Animals in Minnesota
petsuppliesbeaglefreedomprojectWhen Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton signed his state’s Omnibus Supplemental Budget Bill, the Beagle Freedom Law, written by Scott Dibble gives research animals the freedom to be adopted. The law mandates that if a dog or cat is used in a tax-payer-funded research experiment and is healthy at the end of the experiment, the lab must offer them up to public adoption through a rescue organization such as Beagle Freedom Project.

Of course, we still advocate a moratorium on all animal testing of any kind but we also recognize these first steps as positive. Read more at: BeagleFreedomProject.org.

Beware of Scammers - Bogus Images Used in Rescue Ads
Scammers have been stealing images of cute pets from legitimate adoption and social media sites for use in bogus animal rescue ads. These fake ads commonly appear on sites such as Craigslist, targeting people searching for a pet to adopt, but they also appear through private email. Cyber criminals monitor their victims’ online activity, such as Facebook posts. If a target mentions they love dogs or cats, for example, a scammer might contact them claiming to have a pet for adoption.

Cyber criminals have grown more sophisticated in adapting to their targets’ interest, using Americanized names and cleaning up their grammar, but online scams still follow the classic “Nigerian Prince” format. The scammer offers something of value, in this case an attractive pet. If the target responds, the scammer requests money and personal information. The small percentage of victims who have responded never see their pet, nor recover the lost money.

It’s easy to avoid these scams if you deal with local shelters and rescue groups and meet pets in person before any money changes hands. And no matter what, never respond with personal information to unsolicited requests.
