40 16 mo. old Beagle Puppies in desparate need of HOMES!!!!
« on: October 03, 2007, 05:39:16 pm »
My wife works for Johnson & Johnson and just recieved this email today, hopefully all of these dogs find homes!  So sad...


> >Forwarded message:
Alza Corporation, a Johnson & Johnson Company is
closing their Mountain View facility.

The animal test facility has 40, 16 month old beagle
puppies that DESPERATELY need good loving homes. These dogs were NEVER tested. If you know of anyone, a rescue or are
interested in helping give these puppies homes, please
contact Rick Bible at azoulaybible@hotmail.com. The
facility manager will have to put them to sleep if no
homes are found by OCTOBER 15TH!!!
Thanks,Please give this wide, local circulation.

Hmm...

I did a little digging and found out that they actually closed in August. Apparantly, this is inaccurate or outdated information. I found this article:

I also found lots of other things that indicated that this is inaccurate information.

Sounds like it would have been better for the dogs had it been true.

Completely agreed.

Thanks for checking that out, I was just passing along something my wife sent me, wasn't trying to post B.S.  I'm not sure why someone would keep a story like that going, unless they're trying to make Johnson & Johnson look bad.  I'll share this with my wife, she'll be relieved.  My bad for not checking things out before I posted this, it's hard when you have an emotional topic like healthy puppies being euthanized just for lack of proper homes.

 >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(


i came home to a angry e mail

Please be careful what you post, I forwarded this
email to about 300 people, now I really look stupid!

Unfortunately, inaccurate and misleading information
has been circulating on the Internet about ALZA's
plans for dogs housed at its campus. There is no
public adoption program. The animals will be properly
cared for and relocated to a different facility when
ALZA closes at the end of the year. We regret this
unfortunate misunderstandi ng and appreciate your
taking the time to share your thoughts with us.

Hey, don't worry about it. I didn't mean that you were posting B.S. Its just that sometimes when those e-mail pleas go out, they strike me as fishy.

The thing is, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (that huge one out west) has it on their site!!! ANd they have these girls with these little itty bitty beagle puppies! SO MISLEADING! That stuff makes me angry.

Besides, I've got too much extra time on my hands at work sometimes. I can check these things out. ;)
