PCRM is working to end the use of monkeys, goats, and pigs in military medical training courses, and we need the help of veterans. If you have served or are serving in the military, please take a minute to tell us more about yourself.

INFORMATION

As part of PCRM’s ongoing campaign to end the use of live animals in military medical training, we are expanding our outreach to Congress, and we need the help of veterans. If you have served or are serving in the military, please tell us about your service. Please also forward this message to veterans you know.

PCRM is building a vast coalition of supporters to aid us in our campaign. We hope to show the secretary of defense that using animals in this type of training is ethically unsound, fiscally irresponsible, and educationally ineffective.

A significant bloc of our coalition will be veterans and veterans’ groups. In the coming weeks, we will be asking our members with a military background to reach out to veterans’ groups and urge them to partner with us on this groundbreaking campaign. Please take a minute and tell us more about your military experience. Then forward this notice to friends and family who have served.

Thank you for your continued help as we work to end the cruel and unnecessary use of animals in military medical training programs. If you have any questions, please contact Noah Gittell, Research and Education Programs Coordinator at PCRM.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
