WAR Launches New
Operation: Agitate to Liberate
Save the Azopharma Animals
Special Note from WAR: We know that
everyone is busy and that there are many campaigns competing for your
attention. The lives, of as many as 170 animals, are hanging in the
balance here. Please, we beg you, take some time to read about this
desperate situation and take action to save these precious, innocent
lives. This is an opportunity for everyone to agitate to liberate.
On April 2, 2010, Azopharma, owner of Oxford, NJ based Aniclin
Preclinical Services, went into receivership. This left
100 people without jobs and roughly 130 beagle dogs
and as many as 40 monkeys in limbo at the AniClin facility (which
tested pharmaceuticals and chemicals for companies like Novartis and
Schering-Plough very much like the notorious Huntingdon Life
When the owners locked the doors and walked away from the building,
they gave no thought or consideration to the animals imprisoned
inside. Aniclin staffers scaled fences and forcibly entered the
building in order to feed, water and care for the trapped animals.
In late April, Win Animal Rights was notified that the animals were
receiving only minimal care from a skelton staff. Most, if not all, of
these animals are fit to be relocated into
sanctuaries and animal rescues, yet Bank of America (which now owns
Azopharma) and the company
handling the receivership (Morris Anderson) have found it more
convenient to just kill all of the animals.
Since late April, we have been corresponding with a member of the
Receiver's team. Our first order of business was to make sure that the
animals were not killed. Next, we offered to take the animals and to
place them into sanctuaries where they could live out the rest of their
lives in peace and dignity. Sanctuary for the 40 monkeys has already
been secured and we have no doubt that we can find homes and
sanctuaries for the beagles.
& 4 Monkeys are depending on you!
We must take steps to let the Receiver and other decision makers know
that the animals at Aniclin deserve to be released and retired. They
have already given enough of their lives, enough of their freedom and
enough of their blood for human greed. Many of them have been the
subjects of laboratory experiments for over 5 years.
We are asking that for the next 4 days, you make a commitment to
advocate for these poor animals. Each day, we will release contact
information for one of the decision makers. Remember, their lives are
in your hands.
