Animals Rescued From North Carolina Lab

Posted by at 5:45 AM | Permalink | Comments (11)


Animals Rescued From North Carolina Lab by Guest BloggerJust a week after PETA’s undercover investigation of Professional Laboratory and Research Services, Inc. (PLRS) forced the laboratory to shut down,  the 200-plus animals who were rescued from this hellhole are safe and are beginning to heal physically and emotionally. PETA’s friends at the Virginia Beach SPCA (VBSPCA) assisted with the rescue of the animals on Friday, and they have been caring for some of the animals at their shelter. Check out the video that the VBSPCA made of the pups getting some love and attention at the shelter, playing with other dogs, and smiling as they are loaded into the vans that took them away from PLRS. Warning: You might want to have a box of tissues handy!

These dogs’ futures are bright, but other animals continue to suffer in cruel experiments that are used to test everything from toothpaste to chemical weapons. Let’s help them by never buying products that are tested on animals.

    It’s refreshing to read something positive for once. I’m amazed how happy they are after what they’ve been through.

Please, let us all work to save all the other animals that are still suffering in facilities like PLRS in North Carolina……………..We must shut down ALL these types of facilities and prosecute the owners and coward monsters who work at these places!!

    Thank you PETA!! It’s all too good. The animals understood on your videos what a party was all about.

    After ousting the NC research lab, I have sent the 3 petitions to Texas U & others you recommended concerning their awful experiments. The with the monkeys in Alamo, New Mexico, the military too.

    Go, go, go.

    Thank you for asking about Clementine. We appreciate your concern.

    After PETA’s undercover investigation of Professional Laboratory and Research Services, Inc. (PLRS) resulted in the laboratory’s closure, hundreds of animals were seized from the facility. When we learned that Clementine was not among them, PETA called for an investigation of her disappearance. Although the district attorney in this case reports that Clementine has been found, his office will not give us any details.

    Some people may critize PETA for their work, but I say GOD BLESS YOU FOR ALL YOU DO. I pray that some day the world will not need PETA or animal shelters. thank you for saving the innocent animals and getting the word out about the horrible treatment some animals endure all around the world.

    I was lucky enough to adopt one of the cats that came from this facility. He has turned out to be one of the sweetest cats ever and gets along great with my other cats. His two favorite pastimes are giving head-butts as greetings and sleeping on my pillow at night.
