Just a week after PETA's undercover investigation of Professional Laboratory and Research Services, Inc. (PLRS) forced the laboratory to shut down, the 200-plus animals who were rescued from this hellhole are safe and are beginning to heal physically and emotionally. PETA's friends at the Virginia Beach SPCA (VBSPCA) assisted with the rescue of the animals on Friday, and they have been caring for some of the animals at their shelter. Check out the video that the VBSPCA made of the pups getting some love and attention at the shelter, playing with other dogs, and smiling as they are loaded into the vans that took them away from PLRS. Warning: You might want to have a box of tissues handy!
These dogs' futures are bright, but other animals continue to suffer in cruel experiments that are used to test everything from toothpaste to chemical weapons. Let's help them by never buying products that are tested on animals.
