Please Help Beagles Being Killed in Laboratories
Help us reach 12,000 supporters
by tonight! We need just
957 more caring people,
like you, to contribute.
Make your gift today and it will be DOUBLED, up to $500,000.
In a University of Pennsylvania laboratory, researchers bred a litter of beagle puppies so that they would have a disease that led to blindness—then cut out their eyeballs and killed them at 3 weeks of age.
What happened in Philadelphia wasn't an anomaly. Beagles have a friendly, eager-to-please nature that makes them perfect companions for many families around the world. But those wonderful qualities also make them a prime target for horrifying experiments.
So many of these loving dogs spend their lives in barren metal cages, wanting nothing more than a pat on the head or a small treat—and instead they'll be force-fed chemicals that poison them or forced to run on treadmills until they suffer heart attacks.
A total of 11,043 caring individuals have already stepped up to help dogs and other animals in distress as part of our Global "Stop Animal Tests" Challenge this fall. Help us reach 12,000 supporters by tonight!
Be one of the 957 compassionate people these beagles and other animals need. Make a gift to PETA right now, and every dollar will be DOUBLED, up to $500,000!
Many beagles are bred for the sole purpose of becoming test subjects, while others are unwanted dogs taken from animal shelters or obtained through "free to a good home" ads—but with the help of supporters like you, we're waging a campaign to cut off the supply of dogs to laboratories that want them for experimentation.
And thanks to your support, we're winning. After a PETA undercover investigation revealed that dogs in some Utah animal shelters ended up victims of painful, invasive experiments, state legislators overturned a law requiring shelters to give animals to laboratories on demand. Then PETA launched an aggressive campaign that convinced the University of Utah to stop purchasing animals from shelters altogether, effectively ending pound seizure in that state.
With your help, our efforts have saved the lives of thousands of dogs—but nearly 75,000 individual dogs in laboratories still face lonely, agonizing deaths every year. I know that you won't stop speaking out until we win the right for all animals to be treated with the kindness and dignity that they deserve.
Be one of the 957 people we need before midnight: Make your gift now, and every dollar will be MATCHED for double the impact, up to $500,000!
With your support this weekend, we can come even closer to securing $1 million to help animals trapped and abused in laboratories. An opportunity like this doesn't come along every day—so I hope you'll join us. Thank you so much for your compassion and generosity.
Very truly yours,
Ingrid E. Newkirk
