Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Show Your Heart Help Stop Animal Suffering Feb 13th

I apologize for any confusion about this Sunday’s “Have a Heart– Walk for the Animals” dog walk on Sunday. I did not know there was an anti-fur demo on Sunday as well. To accommodate that demo, we have MOVED the time of the dog walk to Sunday, 2-4PM.

AGAIN, THE EVENT IS SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 13 FROM 2-4 PM.

PLEASE POST AND FORWARD

SHOW YOUR HEART, HELP STOP ANIMAL SUFFERING
…Valentines Walk for the Animals

JOIN STOP UBC ANIMAL RESEARCH IN CALLING FOR AN END TO ALL EXPLOITATION OF ANIMALS

WHEN: 2-4PM, Sunday, February 13

WHERE: Meet at the Inukshuk statue at the southwest end of English Bay beach. The statue is located off the popular Vancouver seawall. It is near where the large trees are lit up during Christmas. Along Beach Ave near Bidwell Street.

WHAT TO BRING:
*Your companion dog on leash

*Wear your Stop UBC Animal Research T-shirt. If you don’t have one, we’ll have shirts for sale for $20.

*Signs that read: “End all animal exploitation,” “UBC – All animals should be respected,” “One man killed 100 dogs in Whistler. At UBC 100,000 animals are harmed each year,” “End animal research at UBC,” “Every animal can feel pain – Stop animal research at UBC.”

WHY: Understandably, there has been much public outrage over the killing of 100 sled dogs in Whistler. Stop UBC Animal Research joins the chorus of voices against that senseless slaughter. From this tragedy, we hope the public will begin to make the connection between “Man and woman’s best friend” and the animals suffering in UBC’s laboratories. Each year UBC conducts thousands of experiments involving animals yet much of that research is hidden. Our dog walk along the Seawall will help raise awareness about what is happening to animals at UBC. And it is meant to spark a dialogue about how all animals among us should be treated.

Stop UBC Animal Research is a community grassroots campaign that employs peaceful, legal, and compassionate approaches to educate the public about the grim realities of research on animals at the University of British Columbia and to ultimately bring about an end to research on animals at UBC.
