March of Crimes

PETA needs your help to convince the March of Dimes to stop funding cruel, worthless experiments on animals. March of Dimes experimenters have sewn shut the eyes of newborn kittens, then killed them after they had endured a year of blindness; administered alcohol, nicotine, and cocaine to pregnant
and newborn animals; and performed other agonizing experiments on primates, ferrets, sheep, and other animals.

The March of Dimes relies on donations from individuals who are unaware that their contributions are being used to torture animals instead of helping babies. Their single largest fundraiser is WalkAmerica, a series of walk-a-thons held in every major U.S. city throughout April and May.

Your presence at the WalkAmerica event in your area is vital to educating March of Dimes supporters about the charity's choices when it comes to deciding what projects to fund. It is critical that caring activists encourage WalkAmerica participants to designate their contributions for non-animal projects only, like a birth-defect registry that could save countless babies' lives.

Please contact us at 757-622-7382, or via e-mail at [email protected],  as soon as possible to arrange a peaceful, educational leafleting event at your local WalkAmerica event, and visit for more information. Thank you for all you do for animals!
