Subject: AstraZeneca: Please set the Beagles free!

Your company is closing two breeding facilities one in the UK and one connected to a lab in Sweden.
You stated that some of the remaining beagles will be brought to the Alderley Park Research Facility in Cheshire.
But Astra Zeneca has sent some of the Beagles to one of the laboratories in the UK last night!
Two shipments of 100 dogs are believed to have already arrived in the UK one as recently as two weeks ago.
See video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FULL02rOLhI&feature=youtu.be
Your company permitted employees to rehome as many as 80 of the beagles but said that after careful consideration it will keep the rest - for research....It is thought that 400 dogs face an uncertain painful, cruel future.
More than 20 organisations have written to senior management at AstraZeneca asking to let the dogs go to good homes!
Organisations across the globe exist to save the dogs from experiments, including The Beagle Welfare Scheme in Britain and Swedens Animal Rights Alliance , which has called the beagle's 'lab duty and destination ' sad and ironic. A Swedish campaigner Johan Carlsson said: Were asking AstraZeneca to give these dogs a chance. The closure of the lab is an opportunity to find good homes for them.
But AstraZeneca spokesman Esra Erkal-Paler said: Our team has concluded that, because these dogs have been purpose-bred for research, they are needed to support our global research efforts.
The welfare of the dogs has been and remains our utmost priority and contrary to some reports, no animal is being euthanised as a result of the kennels closing down. Your company said the dogs are mainly used for research on heart disease as well as diabetes, asthma and rheumatism. But NAVS has said many of the animals are subjected to cruel testing and it dreaded to think of the needless suffering the dogs faced if used for research. It also stressed that dogs used for medical testing can go on to lead normal, happy lives because it has successfully rehomed animals in the past. I urge you to give the the dogs that are left at the kennel in Örkelljunga,THE chance of their life.
Please set them free and give them in the care of the good people who have offered to adopt them so that they can experience the joy of having a loving family - something they have been deprived of their entire life.
The world is watching and is following your company's decision in this matter. Please make the humane choice and show the world that you are capable of compassion, too.
The Brody School of Medicine in North Carolina currently uses small animals as models in medical training. The animals have tubes shoved down their windpipes and are left traumatized. Sign this petition to stop the school from using animals for its medical training programs.
Melaleuca is a company that sells various eco-friendly and natural cleaning products and household goods. Despite the company’s claim that all of their products are cruelty-free, the President and CEO of Melaleuca has admitted to ordering animal tests for cleaning products and plans to continue testing products on animals in the future. Please sign this petition and ask Melaleuca to stop testing on animals.
Tulane University medical students who once used live pigs to practice surgical procedures will now use an artificial human model. Thank the Dean for changing school policy.
I was dismayed to learn that the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW) is still tormenting cats in cruel and useless "sound localization" experiments. Cats used in these experiments have steel coils implanted in their eyes, holes drilled into their skulls, and electrodes implanted in their brains. Sometimes, they even have their ears cut off or are intentionally deafened by having a toxic chemical applied to their inner ear. They are then deprived of food for several days in order to coerce them to look in the direction of sounds during experimental sessions in which their heads are immobilized by a bolt screwed to their skulls.
Nearly every cat who has been subjected to this experiment has suffered from chronic bacterial infections as a result of the traumatic head and eye wounds inflicted on them. Because experimenters chronically starve these cats for days at a time, their immune systems are weakened.
A former UW veterinarian who worked in this laboratory has stated that this makes their infections even more severe and even more difficult for the cats to stave off.
Internal UW documents and photographs obtained by PETA show that one cat subjected to this experiment, an orange tabby cat named Double Trouble, woke up while experimenters were cutting into her head. Like other cats used in these experiments, Double Trouble developed debilitating infections and became lethargic and depressed. She started to twitch and suffered paralysis in half her face. After UW faculty deemed the experiment a failure, Double Trouble was killed and decapitated so that her brain could be examined.
The experiment with Double Trouble has never been published, and similar studies on other cats are rarely cited and have never been identified as contributing to advancements in improving human hearing. Yet these cruel and sloppy experiments persist at UW.
As someone who has authority over the activities of all UW campuses and an obligation to ensure that only worthwhile and ethical research projects are pursued, you are in a position to end this cruel project.
I urge you to intervene and stop these experiments immediately.

It seems that any upstart who thinks they are important gets their own perfume these days. They do not bother to look into its production methods, which is inexcusable in these more enlightened times.It is unfortunate that these people are role models for masses of young people. I don't know where this trend of celebrities and their fur and cruelly produced cosmetics has come from. They have a responsibility to young people which they seem to care not one iota about. Unlike the examples set by Paul and Linda McCartney and now Stella to mention just one family.

OIPA JOINS THE INTERNATIONAL INITIATIVE “STOP VIVISECTION”: SIGN THE ONLINE PETITION!
STOP VIVISECTION was born following numerous European citizens' urge the European Commission to abrogate the directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes and to present a new proposal that does away with animal experimentation.
STOP VIVISECTION gives to citizens the possibility to say NO to animal experimentations
Animal experimentation can be considered a danger for human health and the environment, a brake on development of new methods in biomedical research, based on the most recent scientific achievements and an obstacle to tap into much more reliable, exhaustive, cheaper and faster responses, provided by new technologies expressly conceived for humans.
That is why European citizens urge the European Commission to abrogate the directive 2010/63/EU (on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes) and to present a new proposal geared to doing away with animal experimentation, by the compulsory use, in biomedical and toxicological research, of data specifically conceived for humans and not for animals.

I hope there is not going to be any foot dragging here. For example L'Oreal have been big on testing so will they stop in March? We have to be vigilant because these companies have had to be forced, kicking and screaming all the way to stop testing on animals. They could have opted not to like many of the compassionate companies have done and not waited for an official ban.

The news that a facility that breeds dogs for animal testing is closing down might sound like a good thing – but it doesn't mean a reprieve for more than 300 beagles at AstraZeneca's breeding facility in Örkelljunga, Sweden.
AstraZeneca, one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies, is planning to ship the dogs to laboratories in the UK, where they will be subjected to horrifically cruel experiments. In these labs, they may face mutilation, poisoning and infection with deadly diseases before dying alone, terrified and in pain.
It's not too late to save these beagles. Just last month, public pressure secured the release of 70 beagles destined for use in animal tests in India. Now, let's take urgent action to give the AstraZeneca dogs a happy ending, too. Please tell the members of the AstraZeneca Board to send the beagles to loving homes, not heartless labs. PETA
