To Whom It Concerns,

This is an urgent call to AstraZeneca to free the AstraZeneca vivisected beagles, and any other animals suffering under the guise of medical advancement.

From a pragmatic standpoint, if we could adequately determine the effects of drugs using animals in general then human trials would be unnecessary, a costly redundancy of testing protocols. Therefore, if we acknowledge that data from animal testing cannot be extrapolated to humans, as demonstrated by the need for human testing trials prior to a general administration of drugs, then why are animals used at all? To determine a general idea relative to safety of them? If animals cannot be used to predict a human outcome in general, then how can they be used to predict safety? It’s a ridiculous premise, one on which vivisectors place the lives of human animals and the death of non-human animals with a publicity machine using deceptive statements and misleading assertions fabricated by unscrupulous “scientists” to garner social approval.

Animal experimentation is unnecessary, unjustified, and unprincipled, its only function to financially benefit those who exploit animals. Animals have rights to live free from pain and suffering regardless of objections to acknowledge such; I therefore hope this message finds you willing to examine and subsequently change your potential complicity in their abuse and death.

Thank you for your attention and consideration to this urgent appeal.


we stand in defiance,
against pseudoscience.
let those sweet beagles be,
and let them live free!!!!

    Why these pharmaceutical companies cannot make sure these innocent defenceless animals to be sent to the people who are eagerly awaiting to help them & adopt them after these dogs have already done somuch contributions to labs & alike. Please let them spend their rest of the little time left on this earth wth some one who would show them the love & care. Have a heart. Do the right thing.

      I don’t understand why these people have such a problem with doing the right thing. What possibly could there be wrong with them that they think this treatment of animals is okay? Thanks for your input, Manel.
