5 Ways PETA Is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week
- PETA became a shareholder in contract-testing giant Inotiv after the high-profile closure of its beagle-breeding facility in Virginia. Now, the company may be in hot water again over ties to the monkey smugglers recently indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice.
- We’ve filed complaints with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the wake of animal welfare violations in laboratories at Tulane University and Johns Hopkins University, urging the agency to stop pouring tax dollars into cruel and useless experiments.
- A piglet at Texas Tech University displayed signs of salt toxicity after being denied water and was euthanized—prompting PETA to file a complaint with NIH about that school, too.
- PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo penned a powerful opinion piece slamming laboratories for failing to willingly abide by open-records laws and trying to conceal their torturous, wasteful animal experiments from the public.
- We’ve been quoted in widespread coverage of the just-passed FDA Modernization Act 2.0, which we worked hard to get passed. The legislation will allow the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to approve new drugs for human use without any animal tests.
