      1. Because of animal research, human life expectancy in the past century has increased by:
        1. 1.8 years
        2. 3.3 years
        3. 11.9 years
        4. 20.8 years
        1. Virtually every major medical advance in the past century has been dependent upon animal research. Both humans and animals have experienced a better quality of life as a result. Continued animal research is essential to find cures for AIDS, cancer, Alzheimer's, sickle cell anemia, and multiple sclerosis.
      2. As research subjects, dogs have contributed to medical advancements in:
        1. hip replacement surgery
        2. blood transfusions
        3. heart/lung machine for open heart surgery
        4. all of these - and more!
        1. Besides all these contributions, dogs were instrumental in the use of insulin to treat diabetes. Today, dogs are essential for research in kidney disease, orthopedic surgery, and advancements in heart surgery and the treatment of heart disease.
      3. 95% of all animals used in research are:
        1. dogs
        2. cats
        3. rats, mice, and other rodents
        4. monkeys and non-human primates
        1. Dogs, cats, monkeys, and non-human primates COMBINED, account for LESS THAN 1% of all animals used in research.
      4. The humane treatment of research animals is:
        1. completely unregulated
        2. strictly regulated by the federal government
        3. regulated by "animal rights" lobbying groups
        4. regulated by state governments
        1. The federal Animal Welfare Act establishes stringent standards of care and experimentation for ALL animals used in research. Further, the U.S. Public Health Service requires all institutions receiving federal monies adhere to its Animal Welfare Policy. All institutions must follow the directives of the "Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals." Further, all studies which use animals are subject to peer review and oversight committees. All research facilities are also subject to surprise inspections each year by the Department of Agriculture.
      5. Since 1968, the use of animals in research has:
        1. decreased by 5%
        2. decreased by 40%
        3. increased by 68%
        4. increased by 114%
        1. Most researchers use alternative methods instead of animals when possible. Reasearch animals are expensive to acquire and maintain, so non-essential animal research is wasteful and costly. However, animals are essential for certain beneficial research. In fact, their use is REQUIRED by federal law to study the safety of many products and medicines, prior to human trials or use.
      6. Over 80% of all research animals:
        1. are specifically bred for that purpose
        2. are stolen pets
        3. are "random source" animals from pounds
        4. are puppies and kittens
        1. The vast majority of animals used for research are “purpose bred” (i.e. bred specifically for research purposes). All others MUST come from USDA regulated, inspected, and licensed Class B animal dealers,or from pounds where animals would have otherwise been euthanized. There is virtually no market for trade in stolen animals for research purposes. The Foundation for Biomedical Research survey of police departments and animal control agencies in our 10 largest U.S. cities found no evidence of animal theft for resale to researchers.
      7. "Random source" animals for research are best defined as:
        1. stolen pets
        2. feral cats
        3. 1.1% of pound cats/dogs not euthanized by pounds
        4. any non-purebred dog or cat
        1. Each year between 3-4 million dogs and cats (mostly cats) are euthanized by public pounds and animal shelters. All random source animals acquired for institutional research come directly from federally licensed Class B dealers or pounds. These animals are either unclaimed or unadopted and make up only 1.1% of pound animals that would otherwise be euthanized. These animals are essential to research.
      8. State and local bans on use of random source animals for research:
        1. would result in higher costs to the taxpayer
        2. all of these
        3. would significantly increase research costs
        4. would delay and curtail essential medical research
        1. Although millions of dollars are spent on medical research, much of it is funded by government grants. Random source animals from pounds cost significantly less than purpose bred research animals and their unique genetic makeup is essential for certain research. If random source animals are banned, the costs of research increase and much essential research, particularly in the field of heart disease, could either be curtailed or halted.
      9. 75% of respondents to a recent survey:
        1. oppose all animal research
        2. oppose legislation that bans pound animal sales for research
        3. favor legislation that bans pound animal sales for research
        4. support animal research on invertebrates only
        1. The Survey Research Center, Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan, found 75% would oppose the passing of a law which would prevent unclaimed pound animals from being used in medical research for the public benefit. 61% of respondents favored the use of unwanted animals from the pound for medical research, 16% were neutral and only 23% were against such use.
      10. Should Michigan allow the sale of "random source" animals for research?
        1. Yes
        2. No
        1. Thank you for taking this quiz. In Michigan, radical "animal rights" groups are actively lobbying for HB 5263, which would ban the sale AND ACQUISITION of ALL random source animals for essential and live-saving research. If you believe that medical research saves and improves lives - both of human beings and your beloved pets - then we urge you to contact your legislators. The Michigan Association for Pure Bred Dogs advocates for responsible dog ownership and responsible canine legislation. Feel free to contact us at http://www.mapbd.org
