Tell the Department of Transportation that Airlines Should NOT be Forced to Ship Animals for Labs
Action Alert from


NEAVS New England Anti-Vivisection Society
October 2018


Animals need your help. The Department of Transportation (DOT) is considering a complaint on behalf of National Primate Research Centers. This complaint urges the DOT to require all airlines carry animals for research purposes.

You can tell the DOT to dismiss this complaint. Your comment will help animals by allowing airlines to keep their right to refuse transporting animals for research.


Most airlines don’t want to be in the business of transporting animals. This complaint is trying to change that. That’s why animals need your support. Tell the DOT to support animals and dismiss this complaint.


Your comment to the DOT is another step in the journey that will end animal testing once and for all. Without the airlines, labs will struggle to source animals for their experiments. Over time and with more pressure from you, and others like you, labs will have fewer animals and fewer tests. With continued limited options, labs will be forced to use and invest in methods that don’t harm animals. Methods that are humane and scientifically superior. Better for animals and better for our health.

It will only take you a minute to make your comment and it will make a big difference for animals. Just follow this link to get started. Once on the page you simply type in something like: “Dismiss this complaint. Airlines shouldn’t have to ship animals around the world for research”. Add your contact details and submit your comment. That’s it!

Old habits die hard. Even ones as abhorrent as experimenting on animals. With your comment today, you’re letting labs know that continuing to harm animals in the name of science is not acceptable. Animals deserve better and the days of relying on habits and a tradition of cruelty and pain are coming to an end.

Together we’ll make animal testing history! 

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
