A gentle senior Dalmatian named Clementine has been imprisoned at Professional Laboratory and Research Services (PLRS) for as long as seven years. According to a PLRS supervisor, the laboratory bought Clementine in 2003 from a notorious animal dealer

Signed and Noted....Ya Know if I was close to this Facility, I would find a way to RESCUE this beautiful sweet dog from this horrible life. Anyone ever seen the Movie "Beethoven"? Does Anyone know where this facility is? There must be a way to press charges for abuse on this place! This seems like pretty good evidence to me. This really completely sickens me. I would think that Scientists and Researchers were SMART people. But when testing is done on animals for human products, they definitely WON'T get the Right Results. Animal Testing Should be BANNED! I think they should do their Testings on Themselves, they would get more accurate RESULTS! And I am not a scientist, but it doesn't take a degree to figure this out.

I'm going to find out who, if anyone, regulates these testing facilities, what sort of regulations they must follow and how we can apply even more pressure to end testing on animals. It is so cruel and unnecessary. I would like to lock the scientist in those cages for three months so they could see what loneliness, open sores, standing in their own urine and who knows what else is like to be endured. Shameful!

Now we do have a home for this poor soul if we get her out of there don't we? The poor soul ended up there because nobody cared to begin with. Cherie M is on the mark about direct action if this doesn't work. Just my opinion

"The Animal Welfare Act was signed into law in 1966. It is the only Federal law in the United States that regulates the treatment of animals in research, exhibition, transport, and by dealers. Other laws, policies, and guidelines may include additional species coverage or specifications for animal care and use, but all refer to the Animal Welfare Act as the minimum acceptable standard. The Act was amended six times (1970, 1976, 1985, 1990, 2002, 2007) and is enforced by the USDA, APHIS, Animal Care agency."

I took the above from the USDA website. We need to also petition the USDA to inspect PLRS and other such facilities and perhaps get the Humane Society involved.

B***ards!! Close the place down. Get the authorities in now, and close it down. Have signed Peta petition, and have independently emailed all UK connected companies that have/may have used this labs services to sever connections - politely, acknowledging that now they are aware of the cruelty here, they can not possibly wanted to be linked to it.
Where are the authorities here?
Where are the local animal welfare agencies?
Why is it always so bloody difficult to get the obvious DONE?
CLOSE IT DOWN.

MUCH ABUSE - CRUELTY - PEOPLE NEED TO BE PROSECUTED AND NEVER ALLOWED TO WORK NEAR, OR OWN, ANIMALS AGAIN

if associated companies are aware of this abuse and have deliberately colluded in this behaviour, public need to be made aware, and companies also prosecuted by association

but won't we find someone somewhere - even at authority level - taking a sweetener here? isn't there always?

there is a petition at PETA

Poor sweet dog, I signed the petition. I have been in an email trading contest with a school that still uses dogs for experiments, to see why Americans suddenly have heart attacks. You don't need to test on dogs or any other animals to know that in America, the culprit is junk food eating and no exercise, you can take that to the bank! Where has common sense gone?

I often wonder how these people sleep at night. They wouldn't treat their own child like this, so why treat someone else's child in such a inhumane way. Just because it's an animal doesn't mean that it has no feelings, and it doesn't need love and care. To me there is no difference between a human child or an animal child, we all bleed, hurt and breathe the same. I'm so sad for this beautiful dog.

What is it going to take for the emotionally dead to reconnect to reality and pass LAWS, stringent, tough and unbreakable laws to deal with these people! Close these monstrous places down, tear them to the ground afterwards because the energy residue that will be left there will sicken anyone who attempts to stay there.

They should shut down that lab right away and find good homes for all the animals they've been abusing all these years. If they want to test their products on anyone, it should be on the owners of that facility!

What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth.

These people who work in labs like this are wicked,evil degenerates. Their unspeakable acts deserve punishments that fit their crimes. Nothing justifies experiments on animals. Who the hell do people think they are that they feel their lives are so important that animals have to be daily tortured and abused for their (very debatable) benefit? They have to be stopped - they won't be prosecuted that's for sure because their work is sanctioned by Governments everywhere. Legalised depravity - just like in the vile Huntingdon Life Science in this country.

BUT the rest of the animals need to be out of there as well. When I watche the video and saw that bitch of a woman dragging the claws of a terrified cat down the wire mesh hopeing the it 'ucking pulled it's claws out as the cat was an '' ''ucking asshole' I almost tried to grab her through my computer. ALL of the animals in that place need out of there NOW.. The place closed down and crimminal action taken against the people who work there for animal abuse. And we do not need an further products tested on another animal.. NOT ONE ... I am so incensed at this. Please those of you in America please please take this further..

I actually wrote my thoughts about this in the comment section of the petition, so I won't repeat them here. I would just be preaching to the choir here, as clearly everyone here is compassionate and has a conscious. Thank you so much for bringing this story to light, and for starting this petition. I pray that it does some good (yes, I pray for both people and animals -- all God's creatures). She looks like a sweet, sweet girl, and I hope she gets to live out her final years in a loving, SAFE environment. Something tells me that she would be a wonderful, loving dog, once she feels safe. I truly think rescued dogs (animals of all types, really) know the difference between their old life and their new one, and are so grateful.

I will sign gladly. It's mind-boggling to think of how many cats and dogs and other critters are penned up in labs everywhere, going under torture of various kinds just to keep humans healthy--or for inventing things to help humans. It makes me sick. Humans should be in labs contributing this and that for their own good, NOT ANIMALS. If only something could be done about this horrific cruelty!

Twice now I have tried to sign, but the screen changes before I can click on the final sign "button"! Very frustrating! The no of signatures is now at well over 1500 plus, and the goal is 1000. Maybe this is why the software will not permit me to sign?

My personal comment:
This is the most vile abuse! Poor, wretched dog! First an animal dealer buys her from a shelter (!) and then sells her on to this hell hole, this so-called laboratory. SEVEN LONG YEARS of the most horrific neglect and abuse, in conjunction with a complete absence of comfort, kindly attention, gentle handling and not even a soft, fleece to snuggle on! This is ABYSMAL and DESPICABLE!!! As the famous British philosopher Jeremy Bentham wrote in 1789: "The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?" Animals imprisoned in laboratories patently obviously DO SUFFER, and it is well past time to put a STOP to this torture FOREVER!

What I'd give to see them bastards thrown in the same cages and start chemical testing on them! Then if they scream I would tell them to shut up, it is part of their miserable disgusting life.

My feelings on this subject range from rage to revenge - with all the other emotions in-between! WHY is this facility still being allowed to operate? WHO is responsible for running it? Is there absolutely no law governing this hell hole or legal method available to CLOSE IT DOWN, along with all the other research labs in America, Europe and the UK? Is there perhaps a pressure group that can force their closure? PLEASE animal activists, PLEASE notify me should there be one - I am driven by sheer emotion to join one and apply my own brand of vilification against them! Are these research labs really necessary? NO, NO & NO!!!! They are used as an excuse for maladjusted, subhuman and inhumane subspecies of human abortions to act out their every demonic perversion on helpless animals - the 'workers' (more murderers) at these places should be named and shamed before being tarred and feathered and administered a STALIN-like execution! How could ANYBODY deliberately inflict such pain, misery and suffering on such beautiful creatures? They have to be totally mentally demented and devoid of any form of human emotion - best described as clones and manufactured from amputated rear-ends of diseased back-sides! FREE this poor girl immediately, as well as ALL the other inmates of this prison from hell, or suffer the consequences in silence! I would gladly take part in the torturing and mutilation of these bastards if I could - so please, put that b*tch on the first flight to South Africa (the one who does this to those poor animals). My first action will be to remove her teeth, one by one, WITHOUT any form of anaesthetic, and then .........

Investigation Victory: Just one week after PETA released the results of its shocking undercover investigation of North Carolina–based contract animal testing facility Professional Laboratory and Research Services, Inc. (PLRS) and filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), PLRS is surrendering nearly 200 dogs and dozens of cats and shutting its doors for good. This is a monumental victory and the first time that a laboratory has been forced to surrender animals and close under pressure on the heels of a PETA investigation and while
