On Thursday, November 14, the agenda for the University of Washington's Regular Meeting of the Board of Regents includes "Animal Research and Care Facility – Approve Site Selection, Adopt Project Budget, and Approve the Use of the Internal Lending Program." This agenda item is referring to approving a new animal research facility on the UW campus. We are calling on the Board of Regents to NOT approve this animal lab expansion, which will allow the UW to double the number of primates, rabbits, and pigs who are tortured for "research" and subjected to the UW's history of abuse and neglect. The UW is considered a leader in scientific research, so it should be dedicated to pushing advancements in research technology rather than expanding its reliance on outdated and unethical animal research methods that produce inaccurate results.
