5 Ways PETA Is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week

  1. Experimenters at Johns Hopkins University and other schools are getting away with murder, and PETA is demanding that the accomplice—the National Institutes of Health (NIH)—address these horrendous animal welfare violations immediately.
  2. Harvard alums attending an event featuring Interim President Alan M. Garber were greeted by a PETA supporter dressed in “bloody” laboratory garb as sounds of a baby monkey’s screams were played—sending a message that the university’s experiments on primates must come to an end.
  3. Following a string of disturbing animal welfare violations at the University of California–Los Angeles, PETA is urging the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General to investigate the school’s botched NIH-funded experiments.
  4. Animals in laboratories endure painful “Column E” tests without pain relief. You can take action by urging NIH to cut off funding for these cruel experiments.
  5. Animal defenders are taking on Eastern Virginia Medical School after an experimenter there had four baboons killed instead of relocating them to a PETA-secured sanctuary.
