TAKE ACTION: Please take 2 Minutes today to email Skanska, the construction company contracted by the UW, and ask them to end their participation in the barbaric and antiquated process of testing on animals. Below is optional verbiage (provided by campaign leader, No New Animal Lab) for you to use in your request, or feel free to craft your own personalized email.

James McReynolds, Senior Project Manager, Skanska:
Jay Weisberger, Director of Communications, Skanska:

Dear [Skanska contact],

I am writing to express my concern and opposition to your involvement with the animal research industry. According to reports from the University of Washington, Skanska USA is scheduled to begin construction on the UW’s new Animal Research and Care Facility at 1450 NE Boat Street, Seattle.

The University of Washington’s history of using animals in research includes being fined by the USDA for allowing a primate to starve to death, citations for performing unauthorized experiments on primates, and evidence of primates engaging in self-mutilation. The UW uses and kills thousands of animals—primates, dogs, mice, pigs, rabbits, cats, and others—each year, even though animal labs throughout the world have been shutting down due to public pressure, citations for the abuse and neglect of animals, activists’ exposure of the horrific conditions of labs, and a realization that the future of science is in innovative methods that produce more accurate results than using animals.

If Skanska USA builds this new facility for the University of Washington, you will be entangling your company with the UW’s proven, and very public, record of animal cruelty. I implore you to break your contract with UW. Do not follow through with construction of the facility. Do not involve yourself with the animal research industry any further.


[Your Name]

It's always Beagles because of their gentle nature. That makes it all the more heinous.
