Since 2010, Princeton University has been cited over twenty times to be in violation of the bare minimum requirements set forth by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal Welfare Act. Amongst the staggering list of charges, reports unveiled that the University has neglected ailing animals, deliberately deprived animals of water and veterinary medical care, routinely subjected animals to excessive confinement, and maintained speciously incomplete record keeping.
In response to this degenerate display of Princeton University’s blatant disregard for the animals they hold captive, a large and organized anti-vivisection alliance has emerged consisting of Win Animal Rights (WAR), Animal Activists of Philly (AAP), and Friends of Animals United NY/NJ (FAUN) to bring these egregious acts into the public consciousness. While these organizations have been tirelessly campaigning against this institution for over eight months, they are now unifying their efforts by establishing a Princeton-based body of campaigners, increasing their presence on other areas of the campus (including Green Hall – the actual primate laboratory), circulating petitions, creating relevant multi-media content, and with the support/sponsorship of Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN) are developing a central website to expose the horrors behind these violations.
