Fort Worth, Texas – This evening, a pack of PETA supporters will cause a howl of a ruckus outside “An Evening With the President” to demand that Texas A&M University President M. Katherine Banks allow the 19 dogs from the canine muscular dystrophy laboratory to be adopted into loving homes. Nine of the dogs are currently held at the veterinary school’s teaching laboratory. They are healthy, and PETA wants them released for adoption immediately.
When: Thursday, October 14, 5–6 p.m.
Where: Colonial Country Club, 3735 Country Club Cir. (at the intersection with Colonial Parkway), Fort Worth
“Texas A&M did the right thing when it stopped breeding dogs for the canine muscular dystrophy laboratory,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “Now the university needs to release the remaining dogs and provide them with the loving homes that they deserve.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
