Forget About That Corny Corner-Ribbon's Drivel! The Real Secret is HERE Indeed - not over there!

iams what iams...

For nearly 10 months in 2002 and early 2003, a PETA investigator went undercover at an Iams contract testing laboratory and discovered a dark and sordid secret beneath the wholesome image of the dog- and cat-food manufacturer: dogs gone crazy from intense confinement to barren steel cages and cement cells, dogs left piled on a filthy paint-chipped floor after having chunks of muscle hacked from their thighs; dogs surgically debarked; horribly sick dogs and cats languishing in their cages, neglected and left to suffer with no veterinary care.
Iams lied to PETA with promises to improve the conditions for animals in its contract laboratories, even assuring us that enrichment programs were already in place, but our undercover investigator saw otherwise. She fought for six months to have a single cheap, rubber toy placed in each cold, lonely kennel. This is Iams’ idea of enrichment.
Our video footage shows Iams representatives touring the facility and witnessing dogs’ endless circling in barren cells, sweltering in the summer heat. Iams knew the truth yet did nothing to protect the animals.
The dogs and cats in Iams’ tests are no different from our dogs and cats at home when it comes to deserving companionship, play, a stimulating environment, and the right not to be tormented in painful experiments.
Luckily, caring consumers know that advances in nutrition don’t have to come at the expense of animals in labs. Help PETA force Iams to end these painful and unnecessary tests, as many compassionate companies have already done.

Truly disappointing to hear of this - just when you think you know which corporate entity is which (and which one is worthy of respect as well!) - well - this happens (or comes to the public's attention - finally!)
Sad; really
BOYCOTT IAMS CRUELTY!

Luciano,

Thank You so much for making others aware of this horrible crime that Iams has been commiting!

I appreciate you taking the time to report about this to the bloggers of the world!

Wish I could do more, really...
But I was ALREADY boycotting IAMS as it was - the cat I am forced to co-habitate with is a finnicky Friskies type... *LOL*
