Your representative at Primate Products
Among the requirements of the Animal Welfare Act is that research facilities establish an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). The committee is responsible for reviewing animal experiments. Committee members are supposed to ask questions such as: Is the use of animals necessary? Were non-animal alternatives considered? In reality, IACUC members rarely object to experiments or procedures.
At least twice per year, the committee is supposed to inspect the facility to ensure that animals’ living conditions are OK and that staff is well-trained. Reports from IACUC inspections at Primate Products’ facility in Immokalee over and over again note how filthy the place is, how live roaches are found in feed containers, expired drugs, and many other problems.
The Animal Welfare Act requires that at least one member of the committee “not be affiliated in any way” with the research facility. This person is supposed to “provide representation for general community interests in the proper care and treatment of animals.” At Primate Products, this outside person is Janice Groves.
Janice is a business analyst who has spent many years helping businesses and nonprofits in south central Florida. She currently works in the LaBelle office of Florida Gulf Coast University’s Small Business Development Center.
Janice is the community’s representative– she is YOUR representative– inside Primate Products. Please contact Janice and ask her to reconsider her association with Primate Products. Let her know that working with Primate Products tarnishes her good name.

Using Primates for these experiments is a horrid practice, we already know how things like bleach, and ammonia and those kinds of chemicals and toxins are gonna effect the human race…..STOP TORTURING animals. There is no need for this!!!! Maybe you need to feel what they go through? God forbid you EVER have to suffer something horrible like these disgusting experiments!! It’s sick and cruel and I don’t know how you live with yourselves.
JANICE, PLEASE STOP USING ANIMALS IN EXPERIMENTS. THE TORTURES AND KILLING’S HAVE GOT TO STOP. ANIMALS CAN’T SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. WE ARE SPEAKING FOR THEM. TRIBULATIONS ARE FOR REAL. HOW WOULD ONE WHO DOES THIS LIKE IT TO HAPPEN TO THEM. PLEASE END THIS HORRIBLE KILLING.
I know ALL humans are created with a heart of compassion. Unfortunately , alot are tarnished &, brainwashed by the media and MONEY……
Testing on animals is FUTILE ….. there are foods that we as humans can eat , that are TOXIC to animals. And vice versa , foods animals can eat that would be toxic to humans. If simple things as FOODS effect each species differently, how can testing on them give accurate results???
I , in fact would not eat a piece of rotten food of the ground or feces, because my dog is able to eat it without getting sick.
Tylenol is TOXIC to animals but safe for humans. Would you be the first to use a product or take a drug , that had ONLY be tested on animals ??? but never on humans ????? I don’t think so.
Now that i have tried to make a LOGICAL point. Put yourself in the animals position. Take a minute and think about the FEAR , PAIN , SADNESS they endure during their life before they are put to death.
Would you put your dog , cat, CHILDREN , family members , Friends through this suffering and torment ( even is there was a Good reason for it ) ?
This is AUSCHWITZ!!!!!! We can not excuse this any easier than we can excuse Hitlers misuse of humans. We were all created for a loving purpose
Any one involved in ANY way at all , SHAME on them …..
