    The Animals' "Vivisection Hell"

    Following a PETA undercover investigation, the Washington Post further exposed animal mistreatment at the Envigo dog breeding facility. The USDA has cited Envigo with multiple violations. The dogs are sold to researchers and scientists, many of whom are funded by NIH. They will use the animals in cruel, non-productive research, discarding the animals when they are no longer useful. Jeremy Beckham talks to Emil Guillermo about the vivisection hell that the animals are subjected to.

The World’s Most Successful Animal Rights Group

PETA gets results, from reforming barbaric cruelty in zoos to exposing the unspeaking horrors of big ag and factory farming. Notice how the white supremacist/pro-trump trolls are going after them so hard? That should you tell you something. Think about it.

Chinchilla Torture Warehouse MN

This was an excellent interview and a difficult undercover investigation done by PETA. Most of us would not have known about the plight of chinchillas until this exposé. Thank you for calling our attention. I plan to go to the PETA site to observe the heartbreaking videos and then to take action.
