chimpanzee in laboratoryTell Congress: Save Over 300 Million Tax Dollars By Ending Chimpanzee Experimentation

The U.S. Congress has created a 12-member "Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction" to create a plan by November 23 to reduce U.S. debt by at least $1.2 trillion over 10 years. There are many areas of spending on which the 6 Republicans and 6 Democrats will not agree. However, because so much wasteful spending also needlessly harms animals, this gives the animal protection community an enormous opportunity to suggest budget cuts the committee can easily agree on.

Ending chimpanzee experimentation would save over $300 million.  The emerging scientific, ethical and political consensus is clear: as Scientific American, perhaps the most prestigious general interest science magazine in the world, so aptly said, "[T]he time has come to end biomedical experimentation on chimpanzees." Please send a fax to the committee to give them the opportunity to make that consensus a reality while saving U.S. taxpayers $300 million. The fax will automatically be sent to your own U.S. Senators and Representative also.

Colleen Patrick-GoudreauGiving Thanks Veg Style With Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

IDA welcomes celebrated vegan cookbook author Colleen Patrick-Goudreau as a guest blogger to share some incredibly delicious ideas for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday. Colleen explains how compassion and tradition can harmonize this holiday. In fact, eating a vegan feast for Thanksgiving is more consistent with what this holiday is about: creating community, connection, gratitude, and compassion. We can't think of a better way to do that than preparing food that causes as little harm as possible to animals, our health and the earth. Check out Colleen's blog and scrumptious recipes and have a wonderful, compassionate holiday.

Chocolate is bad for animals!Foods That Are Toxic To Animals

Quite a few common human foods can make our animal companions very ill, and many are even deadly.

We all know that they love to get into everything they can (this is their job, after all), so be sure they don't have access to the foods, beverages, cleaners, chemicals, and other products that will harm them. Click here for a list!

Arlin, Barbados Sheep, IDA's Hope Animal SanctuaryArlin, A Barbados Sheep Rescued By IDA's Hope Animal Sanctuary

From the Hope Animal Sanctuary blog: "Our friend Arlin, animal control officer (ACO) for Winona, Mississippi, went the extra mile to see his namesake safely delivered into our hands. The four-hoofed Arlin escaped the trailer he was being transported in and was captured and delivered to the Sell Barn. Technically, the Sell Barn had no claim on him, but it wouldn't agree to his release without payment. The asking price was $150. Our buddy raised the bounty, and we picked up the newly freed Arlin."
