INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Most people view animal shelters as a safe haven for homeless animals looking for a second chance at a loving home. Tragically, many animals at North Utah Valley Animal Shelter (NUVAS) never get that opportunity.
PETA recently received 50 photos of dogs NUVAS sold to the University of Utah for use in cruel and deadly experiments. Some of the animals sold to the university have holes drilled into their skulls, their chests cut open and medical devices implanted onto their hearts, and hard plastic tubes repeatedly forced down their throats.
NUVAS is the only animal shelter in the state of Utah that continues to betray animals in its care by selling them for experimentation, and it's time for the shelter to stop this disgraceful practice of profiting at the expense of these dogs.
See photos and read about Max and other dogs who were denied a second chance at a loving home and learn about what you can do to help end this practice.
Thank you for helping dogs!
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
