Praise Military for Sparing Animals’ Lives

Target: James Mattis, U.S. Secretary of Defense

Goal: Praise U.S. Department of Defense for ending the use of goats and pigs in career advancement training.

Thanks to animal rights activists, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Congress, and many concerned citizens, the U.S. Department of Defense has ended the use of goats and pigs for career advancement training. This will spare countless animals from unnecessary torture, pain and death.

Thanks to modern technology, the military will now be able to use human simulators. Not only are the simulators the compassionate choice, but they are also more effective and economical than using animals. This is just another step the military has taken to lessen the suffering of animals, and hopefully it will not be the last. Sign this petition and thank the military for choosing an ethical alternative, thereby sparing the lives of countless pigs and goats.


Dear Mr. Secretary,

The U.S. Department of Defense recently made the compassionate decision to end its use of goats and pigs in career advancement training. This is great news for the animals, and the many concerned citizens fighting for animal welfare.

Thanks to modern technology, the military will now utilize human simulators which are not only more ethical, but also more economical and effective for learning purposes.

Thank you for taking another step towards ending the use of animals in military training. I can only hope more steps like this will be taken, until human simulators are used for every aspect of training.
