KICK CRUELTY OUT OF CRUFTS
Uncaged and about 20 supporters staged a large protest/information event at the 'Best in Show' day of the Crufts Dog Show due to the fact the show's organiser, the Kennel Club, continues to accept IAMS' sponsorship and publicly defends IAMS' 'research policy.'
This is despite being presented with all the documentary and video evidence by both Uncaged Campaigns and PETA.
This pro-IAMS stance means the Kennel Club is contributing to the suffering endured by animals in IAMS' research. When PETA's investigator complained that the IAMS' animal enrichment and socialisation programs were going nowhere, she was told:
"You have pain. You want a solution no matter what it costs. As times goes [on], the pain gets forgotten. No more pain means you aren't willing to pay as much for that and that's what's happening here. [Iams] got hit by animal rights, now they did some dealing and made some promises - now the animal rights are cooling off, now the pain is gone. Now, they start looking at things [with] a much cooler head..."
