Morrissey Calls For Investigation Into Mistreatment At Animal Testing Lab

Morrissey

Morrissey is a big fighter for animal rights.

So of course he slapped his name on a petition that was demanding an independent probe into a vivisection lab at Imperial College London.

If you're unfamiliar with the term, vivisection is a surgery performed on a living creature for experimental purposes.

That means these animals are ALIVE when scientists begin cutting into them!

Rat Kidney Produced In Lab May Lead To Eventual Human Transplants

Filed under: HealthBodyScience!Rat

ratkidney

Each year, 17,000 people receive a kidney transplant, but it's the number of people that don't receive one that is so astounding.

THAT number is about 17,000 people times FIVE, which is why news that scientists have made functioning rat kidneys at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston is SO amazing!!!!

When the kidneys were transplanted into rats - they effectively produced urine for the rodents!

Normally rat urine isn't very exciting, but this could be a first step towards creating replacement organs for folks who suffer from kidney diseases.

Retired Lab Chimps See Sunlight For The First Time!!

Filed under: Science!RescueChimpanzee

We absolutely hate that any animal is tested on.

Living their lives stuck in cages, being poked and prodded for years and years is the cruelest torture.

That's why it's so so so amazing when those animals get freed!

It's even more ahmayzing when 111 chimps are freed at the same time!

Over the next 12 to 15 months, lab chimps are going to be set free and live out the rest of their lives at Chimp Haven, a gorgeous sanctuary in Keithville, Louisiana.

These chimps get to see the sky and feel grass for the first time!

They can socialize and groom one another with no bars between them too.

It's really beautiful!

Check out the video (above) to see the chimps staring at the sky in absolute awe!

And after being a stray over a year ago that was UNFORTUNATELY found covered in green paint along with her little puppy, the starlet found her on Petfinder.com and picked her up on Saturday.

Dog Stays By Fallen Friend Despite HEAVY Traffic

Sometimes the loyalty of a dog is truly inspiring!

A black Lab stayed by her fallen companion after the poor yellow pooch was struck by a vehicle.

The yellow Lab was mortally wounded and the black Lab never left her friend, despite the heavy traffic flow around her.

A driver placed cones around the dogs to warn other commuters and filmed the brave pooch too.

No one has claimed the black Lab so she is currently up for adoption.

And who wouldn't want to adopt this heroic pup?!
