We have some awesome news! Earlier this week, a representative from United Airlines let us know that the company has banned shipping primates to their deaths in laboratories!
This victory means that because of PETA’s successful campaign, there isn’t a single commercial airline based in North America that is willing to transport primates to a cruel death in laboratories—making it much more difficult for experimenters to get their hands on them in order to lock them away from their families and poison, cut up, and kill them!
This wouldn’t have been possible without YOUR help! Street Teamers from all over spoke up for monkeys and other nonhuman primates and flooded United’s inboxes and Facebook wall with messages urging the airline to stop shipping these animals to be tortured.
United’s new policy means that there are only four major international airlines left in the world that are willing to ship primates off to years of suffering. Let’s make that number zero!
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
