1. Tell Washington University to Stop Torturing Cats
Washington University has recently come under fire for its continued use of live cats to teach medical students in its pediatrics program how to perform tracheal intubation - inserting a breathing tube into the windpipe of infants - which can cause a host of problems for animals used that range from bleeding and scarring to chronic pain and death. The university has access to simulators, but is trying to justify the practice by saying that the school cares for the cats and adopts them out after three years of using them.
Please sign the petition asking the university to stop using live animals and immediately switch to human patient simulators.
2. Ask L.L. Bean to Stop Selling Fur
L.L. Bean, a popular outdoor gear store, has added fur-lined hats and gloves to its latest catalog. Now, animal advocates are calling on the store to ditch products that perpetuate the cruel fur trade.
Please send a letter asking L.L. Bean's president and CEO asking him to get rid of these products and join other compassionate retailers who have taken a stand against animal cruelty.
3. Stop the Slaughter of Lab Monkeys
An undercover investigation conducted by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV) has uncovered the senseless slaughter of hundreds of monkeys at the Noveprim primate breeding farm in Mauritius....allegedly because they've grown too big and labs don't want any over 3.5kg. The BUAV is now asking the Prime Minister of Mauritius to stop the killing and release monkeys back into the wild, in addition to asking the UK government to ban the import of monkeys from Mauritius.
Please sign the BUAV's petition in support of ending the primate trade.
