Sunday, August 29th 12:00PM: Anti-Vivisection Demonstration at Albany
Corner of New Scotland and Holland Avenues, Albany
In 2008, Albany Med killed 12 dogs, 13 rabbits, 8 non-human primates,
38 pigs, 2 goats and 116 chinchillas. They claim that 99% of their
research is done on mice and rats. Mice and rats are not included in
the Animal Welfare Act and therefore do not have to be reported.
Therefore the 189 animals that Albany Med reported to have killed in
2008 represent only 1% of the total number of lives taken.
After some simple math, the actual number of lives taken in 2008 is
closer to 19,000. That's Nineteen Thousand.
We do no accept this number. We do not accept Albany Med's "excuses"
that this cruelty is necessary. It is not, and we will continue to
remind them of this on the fourth Sunday of each month.
