Animals are Not Ours

Urge District Attorney to Prosecute PLRS Animal Abuse!

It's been nearly six months since the release of PETA's shocking undercover investigation inside North Carolina–based Professional Laboratory and Research Services, Inc. (PLRS), which documented that PLRS employees kicked, threw, and dragged dogs; violently threw and slammed cats into cages; intentionally trying to rip cats’ claws from their sensitive paws—making them bleed; roughly handled rabbits and lifted them by the ears; and viciously cursed at animals, calling them "asshole," "bitch," and "motherfucker." But the district attorney, whom PETA first met with almost a year ago, has yet to file cruelty-to-animals charges against those responsible for the suffering, abuse and neglect of hundreds of animals.

Conditions at the primitive laboratory were so appalling that just one week after PETA filed a 70-page formal complaint and hours of video footage with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) alleging violations of the Animal Welfare Act, PLRS shut its doors and surrendered more than 200 dogs and cats to animal shelters and rescue groups. But the employees, managers, and owners responsible for this suffering have so far escaped being brought to justice because the district attorney's office has been dragging its feet for months on end.

You can be a voice for the animals who suffered at the hands of PLRS employees. Take a minute of your time today to politely urge local District Attorney Frank Parrish to bring charges against those responsible for making animals suffer at PLRS, without further delay.
