Stop Covance Animal Testing Lab from Coming to Chandler, Arizona!

Covance is an animal testing lab trying to come to Chandler, Arizona. They have MANY Animal Welfare Acts violations as well as a terrible history of controlling dangerous viruses such as Ebola! The city council and mayor's office have gone behind closed doors to bring this company to the city without any input from local residents. We are trying to stop that! Covance is clearly NOT a company we want doing business near us...or anywhere!  Please help! Read more on this website:  Thank you!
 - ARIZONA residents ONLY need to sign this one!!!

Above is the website you should go to if you are an ARIZONA resident!!  It is the local petition we need due to the effect we're going for.

You may sign this petition if you are from anyplace else. I think the City Council might need to hear from people in other areas or other countries, like Germany, for instance, that have dealt with Covance. Even if you have no experience dealing with Covance, anyone with concerns about animal experimentation is welcome to sign!  click on the link to view video from within Covance:


To:  Mayor Boyd W. Dunn and The Chandler City Council

Covance Laboratories—one of the world’s largest animal-testing laboratories, the world’s largest breeder of dogs for experiments, and one of the biggest importers of wild-caught monkeys into the United States—is planning to build a new testing facility in Chandler, Arizona. We need your help to stop this project in its tracks!

Earlier this year, PETA went public with an 11-month investigation inside a Covance laboratory in Vienna, Virginia—documenting appalling physical and psychological abuse of monkeys. Video footage shot inside Covance was described by a U.K. judge as being “highly disturbing.” The judge also commented on the “rough manner in which the animals [are] handled and the bleakness of the surroundings in which they are kept,” matters which he said “cry out for explanation.”

Indeed, Covance has a lot of explaining to do—from the hundreds of violations of the Animal Welfare Act documented by PETA’s investigator to the sloppy business practices noted in its violations of the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to problems ensuring safety of its workers and its host community (in 1989, when Covance was known as Hazleton Labs, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and a tactical medical military team outfitted in biohazard suits had to enter the lab, kill all the animals, and seal the facility as Ebola virus had been discovered in sick monkeys brought in by the laboratory from the Philippines)—and it does not deserve a red carpet welcome into Chandler.
