World Lab Animal Day

Today is World Lab Animal Day. It's a shame that we humans still have to cause horrible pain to our animal friends, be it chimps, dogs (esp. Beagles) and other animals used for lab work. Almost all of them die without having a loving life and all so we can have an easier life. I know we all have profited from the sacrifices from these lab animals, but a lot of it should be stopped. Say a special little prayer for these animals that they can live out the end of their lives in peace. I just signed a petition for the chimps to be allowed to retire and live in peace.

Yes indeed, it is very frustrating that this is happening. I have signed many petitions to encourage this to stop. Lets be the voice for these animals and set them free.

Many dog pounds sell the dogs to labs. We investigated this years ago when they wanted to keep it quiet. At that time, the big dogs were sold for $50 which was a lot of money at that time. They could sell them for more than adopting to others.
