Inside UF, 10,000 animals are estimated to be imprisoned and tortured on any given day. After 3 successful lawsuits and 4 federal complaints citing “fraud,” “incompetence” and a “culture of corruption” inside their labs, the University of Florida was named 1 of the 5 worst universities for animals in the country in April. Now we are taking our message directly to their alumni, benefactors, and other supporters and asking them to publicly denounce UF and begin to wash the blood from their hands. This week’s action focuses on the Tampa Gator clubs. Please use the email block provided and send the sample letter below.
I will not be able to get to Gainesville today to speak with the community about the war crimes the University of Florida is visiting upon an estimated 10,000 victims daily. I need a new radiator and, until I can get my car fixed, I’m grounded — probably for the next 7 to 10 days. Unfortunately, this will delay the next shipment of my books being mailed as I cannot get to the post office either. I deeply apologize for this inconvenience.
On June 16, 2014, Eleventh Hour for Animals filed a fourth federal complaint against the University of Florida for its animal torture industry; this latest complaint was filed on behalf of a beagle named Ginger. At less than 2 months old, her body was already limp, she couldn’t stand and her head was tilted. Thereafter, she suffer from seizures and vomiting throughout. She was continually revived after being found unresponsive. After another full year of abuse, her autopsy documents that Ginger had water on the lungs, water on the brain, cirrhosis of the liver, a whole host of additional organ damage, and “vocal severe adhesions of the liver and stomach.”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 16, 2014
Eleventh Hour for Animals filed a federal complaint with the USDA this morning citing “fraudulent science” as well as “incompetence” and “negligence” inside the University of Florida in the treatment of a beagle/maltese puppy named Ginger. The complaint calls for the USDA to fully inspect, on an urgent basis, the conditions under which another 37 dogs are being kept and to “ensure that they do not fall victim to the systemic incompetence that has been documented inside UF’s primate labs and appears to be running rampant in the canine labs as well.”

On a daily basis, animals are drowned, suffocated and starved to death; they have their limbs severed and their organs crushed; they are burned, exposed to radiation and used in experimental surgeries; they are shocked, raised in isolation, exposed to weapons of mass destruction and rendered blind or paralyzed; they are given heart attacks, ulcers, paralysis, and seizures; they are forced to inhale tobacco smoke, drink alcohol, and ingest various drugs like heroin and cocaine.
