Pennsylvania House Bill 2912, the “Beagle Freedom Act,” would prohibit the importation and sales of dogs bred by individuals who have certain Animal Welfare Act noncompliances and additionally would require research facilities to offer dogs and cats for adoption when they no longer are being used. As of October 2022, thirteen states already have enacted “Beagle Freedom Bills” requiring animal experimenters and research facilities to make dogs and cats available for adoption. The bill has been referred to the House Committee on Agriculture and Rural Affairs.
