I visited this blog today and signed the petition. Most people don't often think of research animals, only perhaps when you read a label on something that says "This product was not tested on animals". But animals continue to be held and used for research against their will and for their whole lifetime.
I had to dedicate my blog today to: http://releasetheelders.blogspot.com/
Yes this is just one of many animal cruelty issues. But sometimes we have to respond. Please visit this site and share it with your friends. Thanks for leaving your comfort zone.
As sad an issue as it is, it is good to know that people are working to improve the lives of these animals.
