A Plea For Help from those who can`t Speak Our Language

Recently I received a triumphant email stating a victory for all animal rights activists and animal lovers in general. Although I will be posting it below, I need to remind everyone to please realize as BIG as this one triumph is, it is SOOOO not close to being over. Please help in anyways you can.


Breaking News: PETA Investigation Forces Closure of Animal Testing Lab!

Dear Friend,

I'd like to share some exciting news about a historic victory for animals in laboratories! Just one week after PETA released the results of its shocking undercover investigation at the North Carolina contract animal testing facility Professional Laboratory and Research Services, Inc. (PLRS)—which uncovered workers' appalling abuse and neglect of dogs, cats, and rabbits tormented in tests for flea and tick products—and filed a 70-page formal complaint with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) alleging violations of the Animal Welfare Act, PLRS  is shutting its doors for good and surrendering more than 200 dogs and cats left at the facility to animal shelters.

PETA's investigation revealed that dogs, cats, and rabbits abused by PLRS suffered from untreated illnesses, injuries, and burns and that many animals were covered with sores that were likely caused by poor housing, stress, and boredom. PETA's investigator also documented that PLRS employees kicked, threw, grabbed, dropped, and dragged dogs; roughly grabbed and lifted rabbits by their ears; and violently threw and slammed cats into cages.

Thanks to the tremendous outcry of tens of thousands of PETA members and supporters, these mistreated animals will now finally get the veterinary care and loving homes that they deserve.

As wonderful as this historic victory is, there is still more that can be done for animals in laboratories right now, including the following:

Thank you for everything that you do for animals!
