INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

In 2009, many of you joined us in calling on Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) to end its cruel sheep lab. Sadly, despite our past pleas, the institution still uses these animals as training models instead of cruelty-free alternatives like human body simulators. As a result, sheep used in MGH’s ATLS courses continue to endure invasive procedures before being killed, and are also made to suffer the stresses of transport, confinement and surgery preparation.

If you’ve ever visited Farm Sanctuary’s shelters, you know firsthand that sheep are friendly, social animals who don’t deserve to be subjected to such cruelty. Please help us keep the pressure on by contacting MGH President Dr. Peter Slavin, and letting him know that we will continue advocating for an end to live animal use in medical training until it stops for good.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
