Upcoming Vigil Schedule:

Sunday, May 27
We hope you'll come out and join us to hold vigil for all of the animals this evil company profits off of. They make money off of the pain and torture of innocent animals. These animals are truly the most silent victims. We are bringing awareness to the community - we are bringing the truth of what they do into the light.
Charles River Laboratories (CRL) is the world’s largest breeder of animals for use in experiments. Half of all animals used in lab experiments are supplied by CRL.
They also conduct painful tests on animals for companies that produce industrial chemicals, pesticides, food additives, and pharmaceuticals. In these tests, the animals are force-fed test compounds, have experimental chemicals sm...eared onto their shaved skin, and are forced to inhale toxic substances. The animals may endure severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, convulsions, seizures, paralysis, and bleeding from the nose, mouth, and genitals before they ultimately die or are killed.
CRL is the second-largest importer of nonhuman primates into the U.S., bringing in thousands of monkeys who have been stolen from their homes in the wild or bred on decrepit monkey factory farms.
We will have a banner and signs - all you need to bring is yourself.
You can park along the side of the road (be careful getting in and out of your car) or if you want to meet somewhere and carpool there, we can arrange that as well.
Hope to see you there!
