December 10, 2010

 

Please click on the following to sign one petition and send one sample message:

1. Ask University to Release Monkeys to Sanctuary
2. Please send Sample Message to associated email addresses

 

BACKGROUND | From Loredana &  Carin Z.

The University of Utrecht, Holland, has recently announced an end to their primate research program and are now deciding what to do with the remaining five long-tailed macaque monkeys. They have stated that they’re currently considering one of three options:

1) Killing them and putting their brains into a database.

2) Giving the monkeys to Nijmegen University for the similar types of experiments.

3) Handing them over to one of the sanctuaries that have already agreed to take them.

The emails listed below are for the Governors of the University of Utrecht. These people are ultimately responsible for deciding the fate of the monkeys and they have the power to ensure that the animals are released to a sanctuary, and not killed or sent to other laboratories. Please email them and ask them to free the mokeys, and then share this email with everyone you know and ask them to do the same!

SAMPLE MESSAGE

To Whom It Concerns,

I am writing to you concerning the five monkeys who have been unwilling participants in experiments at the University of Utrecht.   It is my understanding that, since you have determined to conclude the primate testing program, you are deliberating as to the fate of the five living monkeys.

It is extremely disturbing to discover, therefore, that your university has seriously been considering to either kill the animals or relinquish them to another laboratory!  Neither of these alternatives is satisfactory or humane; as such, I respectfully urge you to consider the reputation of your university by ensuring that the animals involved in these experiments now be ‘retired’ to a sanctuary where they are able to enjoy whatever remains of their natural lives in security and absent exploitation and pain.

I look forward to your obligatory decision to no longer inflict suffering on these animals, but rather extend respect and justice by granting their fundamental right to not be exploited.

Yours faithfully,

    I will be awaiting your obligatory decision to no longer inflict suffering on these animals, but rather extend RESPECT and justice by granting their fundamental right to not be exploited any longer. They gave you what you wanted. Now grant them some final PEACE.

    I’m right there with Anne and Karen.

    Please give these living & sentient creatures a proper retirement from the pain and unnatural surroundings that they have to endure in their lives.

    THEY DESERVE TO LIVE IN A NATURAL SETTING AND BE ABLE TO LIVE IN INTEGRITY, RATHER THAN IN A CAGE!!

    Please do the right thing!

    Thank You,

    These animals deserve humane treatment and should not be guinea pigs of absurd research.

    Nobody has the right to torture animals, no matter the excuse. Because there is no excuse for animal abuse. Thank you very much Stacey xox

    Studies on Research show that the use on animals on Labs dont work simply because they are not compatible with Humans!!!! Use your brains if you are scientists…and STOP THE TERRORISM ON ANIMALS!
