Alert! Help Save the Monkeys at UBC!


ALERT: Help save the monkeys at UBC!

Today, the Province newspaper published a story about Stop UBC Animal Research’s campaign to halt UBC’s brutal experiments on monkeys (See “Bid to Save UBC monkeys from grim death”). As noted in the article, STOP has urged UBC to release the monkeys to a sanctuary so they can live their remaining days in peace. After conducting horrific experiments on the monkeys, UBC intends to kill them in the coming months.


*Donate to Stop UBC Animal Research’s “Adopt a UBC Monkey” project to help us raise the funds for the UBC monkeys. If we can show UBC we have the money to pay for the monkeys to be released and transported to a sanctuary where they can be rehabilitated UBC may surrender them to us.
