Out of the Labs Petition Presented at Parliament!
Today NZAVS presented our 'Out of the Labs' petition at Parliament! We have collected over 15,000 signatures on this petition, which asks the government to introduce a mandatory retirement policy for animals used for the purposes of research, testing and teaching, and those used to breed for these fields. Heaps of our supporters, dogs, and even a pony turned up to show their support, and Member of Parliament Mojo Mathers accept the petition on behalf of the government!
