Former Animal Companions Are Tormented and Killed in Painful Experiments

Salt Lake City -- Holding signs that read, "Davis County Shelter Betrays Dogs and Cats," members of PETA and the Salt Lake Animal Advocacy Movement (SLAAM) will protest near the Davis County animal shelter on Saturday. Under a state "pound-seizure" law, the shelter has been selling homeless cats and dogs--many of whom were once people's animal companions--to the University of Utah for use in painful and deadly experiments. SLAAM has launched a campaign called "Stop Testing on Pets" to end pound seizure in Utah. Some animal shelters in Utah have refused to turn animals over to the university despite the pound-seizure law.
When: Saturday, January 16, 1 p.m.
Where: Intersection of E. 200 N. and N. 1300 E. (near the animal shelter), Fruit Heights
The protest comes on the heels of PETA's lawsuit against Davis County for failing to provide records--as the law requires--on the more than 100 cats and dogs whom the shelter sold to the University of Utah in 2009. PETA is also launching a shocking new video called "Betrayal of Trust," which will reveal the fate of dogs and cats the university purchased from local animal shelters. The video also contains footage from inside both the Davis County animal shelter and the university's laboratories. "Utah residents deserve to know if their local animal shelter is selling cats and dogs and subjecting them to a lonely, painful, and frequently deadly fate in a laboratory," says PETA Vice President of Laboratory Investigations Kathy Guillermo. "PETA and SLAAM are asking all state residents to demand that the cruel and archaic pound-seizure statute be stricken from the books."

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
