Tell Pet Food Company to Stop Killing Animals in Laboratory Testing

Target: Iams Pet Food Company, CEO Jeffery Ansell
Goal: To stop Iams from performing laboratory testing on animals that sometimes results in death.

After a complaint by PETA, the U.S. Department of Agriculture found Iams’ laboratory violated nearly forty of the rules in the federal Animal Welfare Act, including failure to provide veterinary care and pain relief to suffering animals, and failure to provide animals with adequate spaces. The laboratory was fined thirty-three thousand dollars. This coupled with pressure from PETA, caused Iams to agree to a series of changes that have greatly reduced their animal testing. This includes doing more in-home testing and no longer performing invasive testing on cats and dogs, however they have so far refused to stop invasive testing on other animals.

While Iams’ progress is good, they need to do more. Iams still has over seven-hundred animals in a laboratory in Dayton, Ohio. They claim the animals are kept in a nice environment, but refuse to allow PETA inside to verify this. Iams also claims that the non-invasive nutritional testing that occurs at the laboratory is too complex for in-home testing, but they could collaborate with veterinary clinics for these trials. Veterinary clinics are well suited for helping with clinical trials by being trained professionals that regularly care for the pets. As an industry leader, Iams needs to send a clear message about animal testing; that no animals deserve to be tortured in laboratories and that no animals should be subject to invasive testing.

Please, ask Iams to collaborate with veterinary clinics for their trials and stop cruelly abusing and killing animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Jeffery Ansell,

Iams is an industry leader that provides pet food world-wide. Recently, Iams has made great strides toward ending animal testing cruelty by performing more in-home testing and stopping invasive testing on cats and dogs. However, there are still over seven-hundred animals in a laboratory in Dayton, Ohio and the treatment of the animals has not been confirmed and Iams has so far refused to stop invasive testing on other animals.

The non-invasive nutritional testing that occurs at the laboratory might be too complex for in-home testing, but Iams could collaborate with veterinary clinics for these trials. Veterinary clinics are well suited for helping with clinical trials by being trained professionals that regularly care for the pets. As an industry leader, Iams should send a strong message about animal testing; that no animals deserve to be tortured in laboratories and that no animals should be subject to invasive testing.

Please, work with veterinary clinics for your trials and stop keeping animals in harsh laboratory conditions.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Consider boycotts against the stores that sell iams dog foods!

  2. I will boycott any and all food retail outlets that sell Iams food. May Proctor and Gamble realise that the public is not going to put up with animal for their explotation.
