Monumental Victory for Chimps
Dear Vinnie,

The National Institutes of Health has announced a plan to retire nearly 90 percent of government-owned chimpanzees to sanctuary, and significantly decrease chimpanzee research grants. This is a huge victory for chimpanzees that wouldn't have been possible without our supporters.

The good news doesn't end there! Fifty government-owned chimpanzees have already been moved from New Iberia Research Center to Chimp Haven, The National Chimpanzee Sanctuary. Watch this moving video of one elderly group's reaction to their new home»

Thank you for all that you do for animals.

There are many people who should not own dogs, and looks like these were some of them, until PETA stepped in. The difference is amazing and worth donating towards their doghouse fund, which I will do. Thanks for this Vinnie!

The Dog House Project is awesome; I have to agree with Penny; some people should have dogs. Don't why anyone would have one that was totally neglected and isolated. That's not the purpose of man's best friend. Dogs are companions and should be treated as friends and family.

Dogs Find Rides

16,600+ Dogs Find Rides, Homes with Million Dollar Initiative
Last weekend we celebrated a major milestone in Miami: The completion of the Carroll Petrie Foundation Dog Rescue Project, which helped thousands of dogs get medical care and rides from overcrowded shelters to areas of the country where they had a better chance at adoption. See photos from our bon voyage event in Florida, when 30 adorable pups hopped on a plane bound for Long Island and their future forever homes. Read more...

This is fantastic, all these dogs getting a new chance of adoption and taking the surplus of dogs from over crowded shelters. This makes my day, such a wonderful story. Thanks Vinnie!

INDIA, Bans Animal Testing ~~

reaking News

Dear Vinnie,

cute bunnyWe have very exciting news to share! Today, in a landmark victory for animals in laboratories, India has announced that it will implement a ban on using animals to test cosmetics!

After an extensive campaign by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India—which included appeals from high-profile politicians and multinational retailers such as LUSH and The Body Shop as well as lengthy discussions with PETA India's scientists—the drug controller general of India announced today that testing cosmetics and their ingredients on animals will not be permitted in India. The announcement was made during a meeting of the Bureau of Indian Standards' Cosmetics Sectional Committee, of which PETA India's science policy adviser, Dr. Chaitanya Koduri, is a member. Earlier in the week, Dr. Koduri had held a private meeting with India's drug controller general urging him to implement the ban.

This announcement comes on the heels of recently enacted bans on cosmetics testing on animals in the European Union and in Israel.

This victory marks an important milestone in the fight to end animal testing worldwide, and PETA is working hard to urge other countries—including the U.S.—to follow in the footsteps of the EU, Israel, and India by adopting a ban on animal tests for cosmetics as well as personal-care and household products. There are still millions of animals suffering in laboratories around the world who need your help! Although more than 1,300 companies have banned cruel tests on animals in favor of reliable and modern non-animal tests, some companies still subject animals to painful tests in which substances are dripped into their eyes, smeared onto their abraded skin, sprayed in their faces, or forced down their throats.

We urge you to support the compassionate, cruelty-free companies that have pledged never to harm any animals for their products by using PETA's brand-new global Cruelty-Free Shopping Guide every time you shop! Order a free copy or use PETA's Beauty Without Bunnies online database to find wonderful cruelty-free products for all your needs.

Thanks for your continued support and compassion for animals in laboratories!
