Please write the comissioners TODAY! There is still time. If you donít write in time, then call and email them (a consolidated email list is at the very bottom). They need to get flooded with protesting voices. We are all that can stop it. And I have heard some of them have been affected by our comments to them. It's just a little effort, and these precious animals are depending on us.

MONTCALM, COUNTY, Stanton, Michigan, is selling shelter dogs to research facilities.


Do you REALLY want to make a difference?

Visit your Post Office and buy 9 post cards. Scroll down to SAMPLE LETTER below and copy onto EACH post card. Address to each of the nine commissioners listed below. That's it! If you want to get others to sign 9 post cards, buy 18 and fill everything out for them. Just ask them to sign their name and address.

This will protect future animals taken to this county's pound from torture in a research facility. Is that worth making a little bit of effort for and taking a few minutes of your time?

The very thought that a lost, surrendered
or abandoned companion animal
can end up on a researcher's table
in Montcalm County, Stanton, Michigan
~ turned over by a "shelter" ~
is horrifying beyond words.

You can help stop this atrocity NOW!
Please read the e-mail below
for the background on this situation
and then
Write and Call the commissioners!
You can make a difference.

We have all gotten use to sending email. It is easier, that is for sure. But this is a serious issue. Think of a puppy sitting at the pound in a cage not knowing what is happening to him/her. Then, all of a sudden he is loaded into the back of a truck and hauled off like livestock to a research facility, where he/she will go through grueling (and unnecessary) pain. My God, the thought of this makes me feel physically ill. WE CAN STOP THIS INSANITY. YOU CAN STOP THIS INSANITY!

" I don't want to be used in an experiment
to find out if your perfume will make your eyes water.
to feel pain and then be killed
after sometimes more than one
experiment has been performed on me!
I have feelings!"

Please, just this once send an old fashioned postcard (pick 9 or more up from the post office so you can write all 9 commissioners) or write a good old-fashioned letter and copy it 9 times. Often times when email is sent for something like this the commissioners will simply hit DELETE.

Make the mail clerks and everyone else in the County building see and feel the amount of protest. Call the commissioners at their homes, too, and keep their phone lines busy. I know from personal experience that letters and calls really gets attention. I was called into the mayor's office when he had received over 1,000 post cards (they were stacked up against his wall) from people who weren't happy that a guy here in Fremont was shooting cats and got away with it.

Always be polite and respectful
but be persistent
and tell others to call and write as well.

More information on these Petfinders sites too - More dogs gone to research, help the rest from going We still need YOU!!!!! 3 went to research (the above photo is of sweet Trooper, who went with two other Labs Shelby and Barney.) - read through this one, conflicting views, but it is believed that dear Trooper had been adopted, but the other two fellows need rescuing.
