Norfolk, Va. – Below, please find a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk regarding the death of Penny Marshall:

Penny Marshall, a great friend to animals, was determined in her last years to end Wayne State University’s cruel experiments on dogs, including one named Laverne in her honor. PETA will pay tribute to her legacy of kindness by urging the school to retire these dogs and end the experiments, as she wished.

PETA’s motto reads, “Animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.” For more information, please visit PETA.org.
