I got an Email from a girl and she wanted me to look at the Iams website. As I was doing an search on animal testing I found that Iams does. I have the address and fax numbers to some of the people high up in the company. I NEED you all to send Emails to them and tell them what you think.

Please Email write or call them.

Here is what I sent...

Dear Jeffrey P. Ansell, President

I just wanted to let you know that I bought Iams products at one time. From food to treats to toys. But, I WILL NOT buy anymore Iams products for my animal companions until you STOP experiments on animals and instead rely on laboratory analysis of formulas for nutritional composition and studies who have been volunteered by their human companions. I could not believe some of the things that I saw and read. I have an idea let us lock you in a cage and never let you out and when someone does come to the door you hid in the very back because you are so afraid that you will be mistreated and have test run on you. The Bible says that you reap what you sow!!!!

SO GET READY BUDDY!! YOU ARE FOUND GUILITY!!!!!

Thank you for your time.
Amanda

Come on guys I need your help one E-mail will not make the difference but maybe alot of them will. Please you are the only hope these animals have. :(

Procter & Gamble Blood on your hands? Change your brands!
JOIN THE GLOBAL P&G BOYCOTT
P&G, one of the world's largest consumer product companies, have been branded the "world's worst" corporation for their continued poisoning and killing of animals in the development of new cosmetics and toiletries not to mention Iams is a division of P&G.


PROCTER & GAMBLE TEST ON ANIMALS
I am fully behind Uncaged's campaign to boycott Proctor and Gamble products. It is high time that this company be shamed into dropping the cruel practice of testing new chemicals on animals.

I have long campaigned against the barbarity of vivisection - whether this be for cosmetics or for medical reasons, animal testing is obsolete and ineffective. Multinational companies like this are clearly no respecters of democracy or government - so let's show them the power of grassroots opposition by refusing to buy their products.

Many of our household products are from P&G so it goes much deeper than Iams but letting them know how we fell is a fantastic idea.

I agree
there has been countless numbers of animal rights activists trying to stop companies like proctor and gamble.

If you do a search, you'll find I posted about P&G and their doings a long time ago...with a list of all their products to avoid buying :D

The way to really get them is in the pocket book

If any of you right P&G tell them the products that you 've been using
LIST THEM and tell them you will be buying from another company that does not test on animals.

I'll look for the list and post it for yu :D

I wish I knew! They only thing I know to do is to stop buying all those products write letters, call, fax, and email. I will get on line and talk to the shelter that I live close to and see if there is anything more. If you go to the website I posted there are posters and flyers pass them out get the word out and spread it around. Figure if we all concvence one person a day and they concenvence one person and it keeps going than they stop buying we are off to a good start. I will let you know what I find out. But for now write and call pass out flyers and most of all STOP BUYING THESE THINGS!!!! :mad:

Hey everyone. Here is the e-mail I just sent Mr. Ansell....



Dear Mr. Jeffery Ansell,

I have faithfully bought Iams and Eukanuba products since I got my first dog 3 years ago. I buy treats, food, toys, etc., on the fact that Iams has always seemed to hold a great deal of integrity. When you watch Iams commercials, you see dogs and cats playing and running free. They appear healthy, happy, and most of all, loved. Does Iams find this amusing? It seems like one big joke to your company! How can you promote one thing in you ads, and do another behind closed doors?? To hold these dogs and cats in laboratories unnecessarily is completely disgusting!!!! Do your employees get a kick out of tormenting and mistreating animals? How can a company so well known among animal lovers, be so cruel to the very animals they are trying to "help"?

If Iams were a clothing company, I could maybe understand your stupidity, but to be a company based on animal nutrition and HEALTH, you should ashamed of your business practices.

Just to let you know, I am no longer feeding my dogs Iams or any other Iams related products. I will also not support the stores that sell Iams products including Petland, Petsmart, and Petcetera here in Calgary. I will be sending them all letters describing my disgust with Iams and how I will no longer be a consumer of theirs in hopes that it will get them to stop selling Iams products. Also, as a very successful dog walker and boarder in Calgary, I will let my clients know my protest against Iams in hopes that they will join me in my fight. All of my family and friends will also no longer be supporting Iams, or any companies associated with Iams.

I hope that you can sleep at night knowing the wrong that you are doing. These dogs and cats in your labs were not born to be science experiments, especially in this day and age where these tests are completely unnecessary! If you have a dog at home, look into his eyes and tell me that at the end of the day you are not grateful for him. Just know that if you were to conduct these tests on him and lock him in a cage everyday, he would still wag his tail eagerly and try his best to get out to give you kisses as a dogs loyalty to his owners has no boundaries. His love for you is unconditional. I honestly pray for your soul.....

Pami Atwal

Calgary Alberta.

Dear Animal killers (Jeffrey P. Ansell)

I just recently fell upon some information that indicates what your company is really about. To be honest I only read the first few lines for fear that the rest of the article would make me crazy with anger. The pictures of the happy animals that you put on your products is nothing but lies. If someone were to take you aside and do to you the things that you allow to be done to these animals, I'm sure you would gain a different perspective on things, only because you would realize how vicious these acts really are. I will inform every person I meet that IAMS agrees with animal testing and that they do not care at all about the health and well being of animals. I will not support Iams but will instead contribute to there downfall. Everyone in the world should know what Iams is all about. I would love nothing more than to put you in a teeny tiny cage, feed you when I see fit, Remove your voice because your opinions do not matter, remove valuable muscle because hey your a worthless creature. I would love to look into your sad little eyes that are begging for some compassion and human love and give you nothing but pain and anguish. And I would love the fact of knowing that I made your life as miserable as the lives that the animals in your care. But you want to know why none of this has happened to you ( there are alot of people out there that would like to ) because most of the humans that walk this earth have been tought love and understanding. Compassion and warmth. Care and respect. But I guess your mother forgot to teach you these few but important things.
Remember this: The animals in your care simply want love and attention that they so deserve. An animal would never keep score. Thats what people do.
And Mr. Jeffrey P. Ansell.........I'm keeping score!
Thanks for listening
Jennifer

The Ottawa Humane Society continues to be sponsored by Eukanuba (their big fundraiser Wiggle Waggle Walkathon is coming up in a couple of weeks).
I have today fired off a letter strongly opposing this sponsorship. I will let you know what response (if any) I receive.
I understand PETA reps demonstrated recently in front of an Ottawa Loblaws and I have notified all my "animal" people (and others) about the Iams Cruelty. Emails are a wonderful way to spread the word.

Princesss04
August 27th, 2004, 01:37 PM
Yes, that is a good idea. I made up an Email and added the Iams cruelty website and started sending it all over the place. And telling them to forward it. Have you all seen those Emails that for everytime you forward it and someone else forwards it and so on and so on that Microsoft or some big company will give a few cents to some other company. I wonder if we could make a website contact someone and do that and have it put to trying to get this stopped (given to some orgainzation) what do you think of that. Do like an Iams cruelty website Email? Thank you for sending and Email and doing your part pass on the word to all your friends have them write and Email.

For those of you who haven't seen it, watch the hidden camera video:
http://www.iamscruelty.com/iams-video.asp

Ok folks, I have a confession to make. Just this afternoon I was having a conversation about this thread. I was saying that given all of the products that Proctor and Gamble sells, refusing to buy their dog food would not likely bring this company to its knees. I was of the opinion that little ole me in podunk New Mexico is not going to affect such a huge corporation buy not buying their products. I said that if I knew that it WOULD make a difference, if this boycott would be effective, I would join in. But a boycott isn't a boycott unless everyone participates. And that's not likely to happen. Most of us have Proctor and Gamble products in our home (thank you Luba for the list-it was a real eye-opener), without even knowing what we are contributing to.
Bear with me, and please don't think less of me for this. I am being honest here, knowing I will likely be attacked for it.
Well I just took a look at the video and now I'm feeling very affected. I can put words on this screen like everyone else, I can describe the dogs with strips of flesh cut from their legs, crammed together in a room- but it will NEVER have the effect that seeing it for yourself will. I must urge anyone who has not SEEN it, even if you think you are ambivalent about the issue- PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO.
Those of you who are sending out emails to friends and family, please put a link to that video in your email. Nothing you say will be as effective as them watching it. I am living proof of that.
I can now say that I will be using a more discretionary eye when shopping, although I still wonder what good it will really do. But I can tell you this: when I am done with this post, Proctor and Gamble is going to get one heck of an email from me. Even if it's just to make ME feel better.

August 29th, 2004, 07:02 PM
OK, this makes me so mad. I sent them an email saying exactly what I thought of them. Then I noticed that there are many other products now available by them. I emailed with my other address and sweetly asked for a list with all products on it. :D ;) I'll post it here for you when I get it.

Yeah, well this is how I'm going to express MY individuality, buddy boy. I'm going cold turkey on ALL these products.

Thanks, Spoiled.

:D Me to. I'm also sending emails out to all the people I know that tell them not to use these products and what they are supporting if they do. I'm also going to tell them to forward the email. If we all do it, we'll have thousands of people who know about it - enough to make an impact on this company. :)

This has been going around for years now. It's a bunch of animal rights propaganda. I don't feed Iam's either, but not because of garbage that PETA spews. If Iam's is to feel financial repercussions, let it be because their food is crappy, not because of a bunch of PETA propanda.

Oh, and remember, Proctor and Gamble---they are really a Satanic corporation---don't they have a Satanic symbol as their logo or something like that?

Did she really say "PETA propaganda??? :mad:

Well, when I wrote the President of Iams I did not think I would get a response but they did write me back and here is the CRAP that it said..... :mad: :mad: :mad:



Dear Amanda:

Thank you for taking the time to contact us about our nutritional feeding
studies. Please know that even though Jeff is not personally answering your
message, he is aware of it.

You've received some incorrect and outdated information. An extreme activist
organization continues a misleading campaign featuring footage that's more
than a year old of a facility we no longer use. This inaccurate account
includes examples of dogs and cats that were not part of our studies, and
makes claims of activities that we never authorized.

We want to be perfectly clear: Iams will not fund or participate in any
study requiring or resulting in the euthanasia of cats or dogs. This
principle is just one of eight points in our strict research policy that is
approved by an independent Animal Care Advisory Board. The members of our
Advisory Board are from respected animal welfare organizations such as the
ASPCA and the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). We chose these
individuals because they share our interest in reducing, refining, and
replacing animals in research.

In addition, the Advisory Board conducts unannounced visits to review the
care and welfare of the dogs and cats participating in our feeding studies
at our internal and external sites.

To see a summary of recent facility reports, to view video footage of
animals in our care, or to review our research policy please visit our web
site at www.iamstruth.com.

You can also see a facility report by utilizing the following URL:
http://www.aspca.org/site/PageServer?pagename=iamsresearch

Other important information we'd like to share:

We support the ultimate elimination of laboratory feeding studies as
scientifically valid alternatives become available. Iams is actively working
with external partners to develop new research methods in pet nutrition
which do not require laboratory feeding studies.

We are taking full responsibility for the destiny of all dogs and cats that
participate in our feeding studies at both internal and external sites. Our
dogs and cats are either adopted into loving homes or placed in the Iams
retirement center when they no longer participate in our feeding studies.
This is unprecedented in the pet arena; we know of no other company that is
taking this level of responsibility for the ongoing well-being of all dogs
and cats with whom they work.

We are proactively sharing the Iams Welfare Program for dogs and cats in an
effort to make it the norm. An Iams Behaviorist has shared our socialization
and enrichment program with shelters, veterinarians and others to illustrate
that it's possible to enrich and socialize in such an environment. In
addition, we recently presented our program to others in the pet food
industry. We are committed to continual improvement in this area and are
looking to adopt best practices in animal care and nutritional research
wherever they are created. We will continue to actively search and reapply
good ideas from around the world.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact us and for giving us the
opportunity to respond with the facts. If you need further information or
have specific questions, please visit the Web site or contact Consumer Care
at 800-525-4267. One of our advisors will be more than happy to speak with
you about this very important issue.

Sincerely,
Sharon
Iams Consumer Care, North America

Dear Jeffrey P. Ansell, President
I just wanted to let you know that I bought your products all the time. From
food to treat to toy, etc. But, I WILL NOT buy anymore Iams products for my
animals companions until you STOP experiments on animals and, instead, rely
on laboratory analysis of formulas for nutritional composition and studies
who have been volunteered by their human companions. I could not believe
some of the things that I read that you all do to those poor animals. Let us
lock you in a cage and leave you there all your life and when someone comes
to finally get you out you hid in the very back of the cage because you are
tried of being pooked and tested on. The Bible says that you reap what you
sow.
SO GET READY BUDDY!!! YOU ARE FOUND GUILITY!!!!!


Thank you for your time,
Amanda

I don't mean to hijack this thread but please also know that Menu Foods conducts similar testing. Menu foods makes 95% of the private label (house brand) canned pet food in Canada. I know that Presidents Choice is one large customer. (I am formerly a buyer for an Ontario Pet Food franchise).

I just sent Iams a letter. I simply stated that as a "Doggie Mom" who loves my dog, why would I choose a company that obviously has no regard for the life of dogs?? That I would not be buying anything associated with IAMS and P+G until they decide to treat their animals with care and respect, not debarking, invasive procedures, cages. They are a company whos livelyhood depends on people loving their animal. ANd if they couldn't show respect for those of us who's dollar they depend on, then they'd never get another cent out of me!!
