Victory! Utah Pound Seizure Stopped

Filed under: PETAAnimal RightsAmazingAnimal Cruelty

Peta victory

YAY!!!!!

Here's a happy update regarding University of Utah (the University was purchasing shelter pets to use for deadly experiments).

As of just last night, we can officially declare VICTORY: The University has ended its policy!

Following PETA's undercover investigation and an intense year-long campaign, the University of Utah (also known as "the U") has announced that it will no longer purchase dogs and cats to in invasive and deadly experiments!

Since the U was the last Utah purchaser of homeless animals for use in experiments, this victory means the complete end of "pound seizure" in the state of Utah!

This is a major victory, but there are still too many animals suffering in university laboratories—in Michigan, South Carolina, and Ohio and in both Dallas and Galveston, Texas, just to name a few.

Help PETA continue to help animals, become a member today!

World's Largest Tea Maker Ends Tests On Animals Thanks To PETA

Filed under: PETAAnimal RightsAnimal Cruelty

CruelTEA free tea

PETA has got some power!

The animal-rights organization has successfully convinced the world's largest teamaker, Unilever, to immediately cease wordwide testing on animals for tea or tea ingredients.

Unilever, the company behind brands such as Lipton and PG tips teas, was advised of imminent global "Lipton/PG tips CruelTEA" campaigns by PETA and its affiliates in a meeting with top executives, which included a little peek into the campaign.

The glimpse included a sneak peek at PETA's planned campaign website, which contained hard facts about painful experiments on pigs, rabbits, and rats as well as parodies of the tea brands' labels.

It worked and Lipton has posted its new policy on its website stating:

"Unilever is committing to no animal testing for our tea and tea-based beverages, with immediate effect."

The company joins other major beverage companies like the world's number one green-tea maker, ITO EN, as well as Honest Tea, Twinings, Luzianne Tea, and Stash Tea in their pledge not to conduct tests on animals.

Well played, PETA!

Shelter Dog Saved After Being Sold To Laboratory For Testing!

Filed under: PETAAnimal RightsAdoptionDogAnimal CrueltyDanger!

Let this be a warning to anybody considering giving up their pet to a shelter!

The adorable dog, busy making snow angles in the snow above, was reluctantly surrendered to the North Utah Valley Animal shelter by her owner, Gayle, because she wasn't getting along with the other pets.

Gayle wanted to find a new, loving home capable of taking care of Sheena, but what she didn't expect is for her dog to be sold to a nearby university for animal tests!

Gayle regularly called up the shelter to check up on her dog and one day was hit with the news that her dog had been sold to the university.

When Gayle asked NUVAS staffers for details on the shelter's arrangement with the university, she was told that shelter employees are prohibited from speaking with the public about it.

Talk about shady business practices!

The distraught pet lover immediately called PETA's emergency hotline and learned that dogs who are purchased from NUVAS by the university are often surgically mutilated and killed.

Oh no!

Gayle demanded that they return Sheena to her, and with PETA's help, she found Sheena a loving foster home, where the dog will stay until a permanent home becomes available.

This story may have had a happy ending, but most of them don't.

PETA is urging NUVAS to follow in the footsteps of every other shelter in the state and stop betraying homeless animals by selling them for experiments.

If you can't take care of an animal and need to give it to a shelter, please do that animal a favor and make sure the shelter does not sell animals off for experiments!

NASA Is Ending Monkey Experiments

Filed under: PETAMonkeyAnimal Cruelty

monkey

PETA is jumping for joy, since they have won their ongoing battle with NASA to stop experiments on monkeys!

These radiation experiments were planned for Brookhaven Institute in New York. In PETA's language the monkeys would be, "isolated in cages and subjected to years of behavioral experiments to measure the damage caused by the radiation. Such damage likely would have included brain damage, cataracts, cancerous tumors, loss of motor control, and early death."

NASA has not yet confirmed that they experiments will be called off, yet they have not denied it either.

Well, as of now, congratz PETA! You just saved some monkeys!

Animal Rights Activists Send A Gruesome Package To UCLA Researcher

Filed under: Animal RightsAnimal Cruelty

David Jentsch

We don't even know what to think about this.

David Jentsch, a researcher at UCLA who conducts research on rodents and primates was sent a frightening package from radical animal rights activists.

He received a package of "bloody AIDS-tainted razor blades," courtesy of The Justice Department, a radical animal-rights group founded in the UK.

WOW!

Another animal rights group, The Animal Liberation Front, printed this message for Jentsch:

The Justice Department at UCLA sent bloody AIDS tainted razor blades to David Jentsch at [xxxxx] Valley Vista boulevard in the town of Sherman Oaks, California; instead he should be living in hell which is where he will eventually end up desirably sooner rather than later. He has no business addicting primates to phencyclidine known on the streets as PCP and other street drugs using grant money from the federal government. Confining primates to puny filthy cages then removing them to give them their fix of PCP when primates would not get addicted if it weren't for Frankenstein's like Jentsch. How would Jentsch like the same thing he does to primates to be done to him? That would be justice. STOP YOUR SICK EXPERIMENTS OR HELL AWAITS YOU. —UCLA JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

Yikes, this is pretty frightening!

The FBI and UCLA police are now investigating this incident. According to the LA Times, this is not the first threat Jentsch has received. In March of 2009 his car was blown up!

OMG!!

We do not know the exact research that Jentsch does, however it has to do with methamphetamine addiction affecting teens and disabilities affecting speech and behavior of schizophrenia patients.

According to sources, Jentsch has also been involved in a project that involved injecting animals twice a day with high doses of PCP, then killing them and examining their brains.

Hmmm….what do U think about this crazyness??

Save These Dogs!!

Filed under: PETAAnimal Rights

Boo to The North Utah Valley Animal Shelter (NUVAS)!!

NUVAS is selling dogs from their shelter to the University of Utah for "invasive and deadly experiments" that include "holes [being] cut into their chests and necks and pacemakers implanted onto their hearts in order to induce irregular heartbeats."

"The dogs were then killed and dissected," according to PETA.

Despicable!! And deceiving!!

Documents from the shelter describe their dogs as cute" and "cuddly" and state that they "love to play fetch" and "enjoy belly rubs, but instead, they're selling them to endure these horrible and disgusting treatments.

Please sign the petition and help stop NUVAS from selling their dogs for experiments!
