URGENT: Save Research Monkeys & Beagles from Death

Hundreds of beagles and monkeys will be killed at the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute as a result of a financial setback. Reportedly, the LRRI lost a contract and is no longer in need of the animals. According to a whistleblower who contacted Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN), the monkey slaughter began on Monday July 11th, with 30 monkeys being killed each day. The beagles are next.

Please ask the LRRI management team to release the animals to sanctuaries and rescue groups !
