Chrissie Hynde Asks P&G Employees to Help Stop Iams' Deadly Animal Tests

Procter & Gamble (P&G) employees returning to work from their Fourth of July holiday weekend will find a surprise in their voice-mail: a message from rock icon and Pretenders frontwoman Chrissie Hynde asking for their help to stop Iams (a P&G subsidiary) from conducting cruel—often deadly-tests on dogs and cats. Chrissie pleads with P&G employees to "urge your employer to end laboratory tests and, instead, adopt in-home testing programs and humane studies in cooperation with veterinarians whose patients already have diseases Iams is interested in." The message, as well as Hynde's call for a boycott of Iams, is part of PETA's international campaign against the Dayton-based pet-food maker.

Chrissie’s message follows:
"Hello. This is Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders reminding you that you didn't buy my last album. But it's still in the shops, so maybe on the way home. By the way, a recent PETA investigation into an Iams contract laboratory revealed dogs and cats being abused in inexcusable ways—kept in barren cages for their entire lives, mutilated by having their vocal cords severed and having huge chunks of muscle cut from their thighs—they're even being killed. Don't think these tests are necessary or required by law. They aren't. Other companies test in other ways. So, please, urge your employer to end laboratory tests and, instead, adopt in-home testing programs and humane studies in cooperation with veterinarians whose patients already have diseases Iams is interested in. For more information, please visit IamsCruelty.com. Thank you. Have a nice day. Cheers."
