Abstract

Impounded animals that were once pets are used for research and education purposes throughout the nation. Many states have pound seizure laws that allow institutions to demand pound animals for research and education purposes. This Article outlines the history of these contentious laws, examines the arguments for and against pound seizure, and proposes a compromise allowing the limited use of pound animals under certain regulated conditions.
