Since 1951, the Animal Welfare Institute has been dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people.

We seek better treatment of animals everywhere - in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home,
and in the wild.

At the US Meat Animal Research Center (MARC), tax dollars are being used to fund cruel experiments—intended to benefit industrial agriculture—whereby animals are starved to death, born with deformities, kept in crates so small that some are crushed by their mothers, and abused in other ways with little oversight or regard for extreme pain and suffering. Please tell USDA to shut down MARC and end this.
