Note To My Critics:

The links to the many sites that I've included contain information that I believe to be relevant, be it the graphics, the videos, the undercover investigations, etc. . Exposing & and ending the brutality and savagery inflicted on the non-human animals is what I am focused on. I strongly believe that every voice against animal abuse/exploitation is of value and -and- collectively we have the power to end it. I am here for the animals, not for anyone's approval and for that I make no apologies. ** I do not promote violence towards humans. ___________________________________________________ Bookmark and Share

Update!

The HSUS Applauds Montcalm County, Mich. for Ending Sale of Shelter Pets for Research

April 27, 2009

The Humane Society of the United States applauds the Montcalm County, Mich. Board of Commissioners for voting to end the practice of providing dogs and cats to R&R Research, an animal broker that sells them for research.

R&R Research is licensed as a Class B dealer by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Class B dealers purchase and collect animals from random sources — such as shelters, auctions, flea markets and individuals — and sell them to laboratories for experimentation. Some Class B dealers have been caught receiving stolen animals or fraudulently obtaining animals, including pets.

"The Humane Society of the United States applauds Montcalm County for moving away from the outmoded practice of providing companion animals to ultimately be used for research," said Jill Fritz, The HSUS Michigan state director. "This will help restore the community's trust in the Montcalm County Animal Shelter and protect animals from potentially inhumane conditions."

Educational institutions are phasing out the use of non-human animals and instead relying on donated human cadavers, models and participation in actual surgeries as teaching tools.
