Stopping Animal Suffering.

I am a huge animal lover.  Dogs, cats, snakes, birds, killer panda bears.. it doesn't matter what they are, I love them all.  While most of us are now looking at the wild animals who are going into extintction, we forget that animal cruelity is still happening here, right now. 

I signed up for the PETA newsletter one day about a month ago.  And, I just got an email from them this morning.  And, here's what it said,
"Right now, inside the laboratories of the University of Utah (the U), dogs and cats—just like the wonderful animals who share our homes—are being subjected to painful, invasive, and often deadly experiments. Will you please work with us to stop the suffering of all animals in need by making an online donation right now?"

I'm not going to post the full email, because it is pretty long, drug out with evidence about how many animals were killed, how they died, etc.  If anyone wants to read the full newsletter, please leave me a comment with your email address and I will forward the newsletter to you.

This is a snapshot I took from the newsletter, sharing the story of the chocolate lab named Remington.

Here is a video I found on the PETA website regarding the same article. It brought tears to my eyes it so horrific.  NOTE: WATCH AT YOUR OWN RISK.  THIS IS NOT A VERY NICE VIDEO. 
I found the video here.  You can read the article here.

If you would like to help, you can make a donation to PETA.  To make a donation, you do have to sign up to be a "PETA member", which only means recieving their newsletter once a month.

You can make a donation here.

(I cannot get my name to automatically stay out of the boxes since I received the link through my email, but you can just delete my name and email address.)

I love animals of all kinds myself... that is so sad what is allowed to happen to them. Thank you for posting this so that more people are aware of what goes on.
