Even though many major companies—including Chrysler, Alaska Airlines, Coca-Cola, Jack Daniel’s, State Farm, Guggenheim Partners, and Wells Fargo—have cut ties with the Iditarod, Millennium Hotels and Resorts continues to sponsor this cruel race, and it needs to hear from you.
- Canada Goose
Canada Goose jackets are products of cruelty, and it’s not just coyotes who suffer and are killed for them. The company also uses down feathers from ducks and geese whose throats are cut and whose bodies are dumped into scalding-hot water. There’s no need for any of this to occur when so many fashionable, functional fur and down alternatives exist. Urge the company to stop selling fur and down now.
For a long time, Barbie has been a fur-free animal advocate, but Mattel is now selling a dog breeder doll. More than 6 million dogs and cats enter U.S. animal shelters every year, so to encourage breeding dogs when so many homeless animals are in need of loving homes is irresponsible and unacceptable. Tell Mattel to discontinue its Barbie Newborn Pups Doll immediately.
- Duke University
Experimenters at Duke University kept macaques thirsty—likely for days—and then forced them to use computer touch screens to select brand logos, such as those of Pizza Hut and Nike, based on their pairings with pictures of a dominant male monkey, a subordinate male, or the hindquarters of a sexually receptive female. Urge the president of Duke University to investigate the school’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee’s misguided approval of this cruel and foolish experiment immediately.
- Garden Bros.
Elephants were electrocuted, bloody, and left in a truck for days. Alligators were starved and used as photo props. A camel was beaten for up to 15 minutes while howling so loudly from the blows that his cries could be heard on stage. According to a whistleblower, this is life for animals used by Garden Bros. Circus. Tell it to follow the lead of modern, cruelty-free circuses by eliminating its animal acts and highlighting its human talent instead.
