5 Ways PETA Is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week

  1. Despite objections from local residents and politicians, Charles River Laboratories is still planning to build the largest monkey-holding facility outside Asia on ecologically sensitive land in Texas.
  2. PETA supporters won’t let EGYPTAIR’s risky import of hundreds of monkeys go unnoticed—they recently protested at John F. Kennedy International Airport to demand that the airline stop participating in the ghastly endangered-monkey trade.
  3. Animal testing is a drag. Check out RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Alaska Thunderf*ck and Heidi N Closet’s campaign with PETA to ditch beauty products that harm sentient beings.  
  4. Victory! After hearing from thousands of PETA Australia supporters, the University of Western Australia ended its cruel and pointless forced swim tests.
  5. In a rare move, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has fined Johns Hopkins University for violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act. Learn from PETA Senior Vice President of Laboratory Investigations Kathy Guillermo what despicable acts led to this fine.
