Rescued Macaques – Operation Monkey Trek

In mid-July, a group of 25 Java Macaques arrived at Primarily Primates after their release from a New Jersey toxicology lab that went out of business. There were 55 macaque monkeys. All had been used in experiments. Sanctuaries were found for all of them. Twenty-five came to Primarily Primates.

The macaques arrived wearing blue restraint collars that made it easier for the vivisectors to control them. The hard plastic collars were removed as soon as they arrived, and Dr. Valerie Kirk, our on-site veterinarian, assessed the monkeys’ health.

Beagles rescued from bankrupt laboratory

HVMediaGroup | 3 de Julho de 2010

TOWN OF WALLKILL — Once destined for lab tests in New Jersey, 90 beagles left small cages and stepped onto grass for the first time Friday at the Pets Alive no-kill animal shelter. The dogs were among 120 taken from the Aniclin Preclinical Services in Warren County, N.J.,
after Aniclin’s parent pharmaceutical company couldn’t pay its bills. A New Jersey-based animal rights organization called Win Animal Rights had fought for control of the 175 Aniclin animals — including 55 primates — and coordinated their release to animal rescue agencies

Stop Military Bomb Experiments on Live Animals

In April 2009, USA Today reported: “Military researchers have dressed live pigs in body armor and strapped them into Humvee simulators that were then blown up with explosives to study the link between roadside bomb blasts and brain injury. . . . The next round of the testing is scheduled for later this year.”

Campaigners celebrate the coming into force of the European Union ban on cosmetic testing on animals

Wednesday 11th March marks the banning of cosmetics testing on animals within the European Union, potentially saving thousands of animals from appalling suffering every year. For nearly two decades, the BUAV, leading sister organisations in the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE), has spearheaded the campaign across Europe to achieve this important ban. The 7th amendment to the Cosmetics Directive means that from 11 March 2009 it becomes illegal to:

– test cosmetic ingredients on animals anywhere in the EU, irrespective of whether there is a non-animal alternative method available (testing on the products themselves is already banned)
– sell or import into the EU cosmetics ingredients or products where they have been animal-tested after 11 March 2009, with the exception of certain types of test which have an extended deadline until 11 March 2013
