Today, June 16, the Arizona Republic published a story on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's opposition to Covance's proposal to build a 400,000 square foot animal-testing facility in Chandler. This article specifically focused on public health concerns over the possibility that Covance's facility may include an animal carcass incinerator.

Please send a letter to the editor of the Arizona Republic supporting the position that the testing of cosmetic ingredients, food additives, pesticides, and drugs on animals is inhumane and ineffective, and that Covance should not be allowed to build a new testing facility in Chandler-or anywhere else. It's important that Arizona citizens express concern over the potential incinerator and the damage it could cause to human health and the environment.

It's also important that the paper receives lots of pro-animal letters and that we send our letters as soon as possible.

To read the article, please go to: http://www.azcentral.com/community/c...ate0616Z6.html. The article is also pasted at the bottom of this e-mail.

To submit a letter, use the Arizona Republic's online form at: http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepu...ndaletter.html.

Thank you so much for your help. If you have any questions or need ideas for your letter, please feel free to e-mail me at [email protected] or call me at 202-686-2210, ext. 358.

Best regards,
