Calling All Animal Activists!

Amy Meyer, March 31, 2021

“What’s Happening?”

In honor of World Day for Animals in Laboratories, grassroots activists from all across the country are leading protests at local Petco stores with a critical message: stop supporting Marshall BioResources, a factory farm breeding dogs, cats, ferrets, pigs, and more animals to be used in experiments.

“When and Where?”

Our National Day of Action is happening on Saturday, April 24, 2021 in-person at a Petco near you.

Can’t make it but want to take a stand from home or on-the-go? You can RSVP to our Day of Action on Facebook where we’ll supply a stream of virtual actions for you to take throughout the day!

“How Come?”

We’re supporting grassroots activists’ efforts from coast to coast in support of one major mission: together, we can stand up for animals and help take down an animal-abusing company by hurting its wallet.

There are approximately 23,000 dogs in Marshall BioResources’ sheds on any given day. Marshall ships the animals they breed to research laboratories across the U.S. and around the world, including private contract companies where animals are subjected to toxicology experiments that force them to inhale or ingest chemicals like pesticides. Other animals are sent to universities and used in invasive science experiments, like severing dogs’ spinal roots, cutting off their tails, and implanting electrodes on their bladders.

So where does Petco come in?

Petco sells ferrets bred by Marshall BioResources and merchandise manufactured by Marshall Pet Products, a subsidiary of the cruel breeding company. By getting Petco to stop selling animals and merchandise from Marshall, we can help slash Marshall’s profits from cruelty.

“I Get It! We Will Pressure Petco to Stop Selling Animals and Merchandise from Marshall, Reducing Their Profits from Cruelty.”

That’s right.

Petco has heard from thousands of concerned customers and animal activists—yet Petco still refuses to respond. So we’re going to turn up the volume on the growing chorus calling for Petco to stop selling Marshall animals and products.

Please join us—we can’t save animals’ lives without you.
