UPDATE: Nearly 200 dogs and 54 cats are safe, but the abusers must be charged:

Tortured by lab staff who kicked, slammed and dragged them — animals from Professional Laboratory and Research Services, Inc. get a second chance.  The Corapeake, NC lab was forced to close and surrender its “test subjects” after a PETA investigation uncovered diseased and wounded dogs, cats and rabbits. Over 9 months, PETA’s investigator recorded staff brutalizing terrified animals. One worker used pliers to wrench teeth from a frantic dog. Another tried to pull out a cat’s claws.

PLRS closure is a portal to the routine abuse that occurs in ALL labs. Animal experimentation itself causes creatures to convulse, bleed, stagger, die. Imagine being overdosed with poison or cut apart while restrained. There isn’t one animal experiment today that couldn’t be replaced by non-animal research tools. But animals come cheap and old habits die hard. Still, for PLRS animals, there is hope. Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) and Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) — working with about 12 regional shelters/rescues — have taken in the lab’s surviving dogs and cats. At this time, Kinship Circle does not know the fate of any rabbits. We do know that PLRS killed rabbits upon conclusion of experiments.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Put the abusers behind bars!  Urge law enforcers to charge/penalize PLRS. Tell animal researchers they aren’t exempt from cruelty laws:

TAKE ACTION HERE!

SHELTERS & RESCUES WITH DOGS/CATS FROM PLRS:

Animals will be in quarantine and rehab before up for adoption/foster.

    SURELY cruelty like this should NEVER be allowed, and the evil, cruel scum who are abusing these poor defenceless animals should be charged with gross animal cruelty. Even if they try to get out of it by saying that the Government accepts these experiments (though WHY), – SURELY the fact than these vile people treat these innocent creatures so badly: hitting, kicking them and dragging them around etc…..I think ALL animal experiments should be stopped, but this wicked, evil place should most definately be closed down and the animals that are (hopefully) still alive should be allowed to have a decent life with loving owners. I think the people who are torturing these poor animals are the sort that really get off on the power of abusing defenceless creatures….and his type of sub-human should NEVER be allowed to be around any animals, whatever the situation.
