Praise Airline for Ending Transport of Laboratory Monkeys

Monkeys Pro-Test Italia

Target: Joseph C. Hete, CEO and President of Air Transport Services Group

Goal: Thank Air Transport Services Group for ending the transport of monkeys to cruel experimentation labs.

For years, Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) has been transporting monkeys used for experimentation to laboratories. Monkeys used in laboratories are commonly kept in small cages, deprived of food and water, infected with diseases, pumped with drugs, cut open, poisoned, mutilated and killed. It is a cruel and painful life laboratory monkeys lead.

Thankfully, ATSG has announced it will no longer be transporting monkeys to laboratories. There is a continuing trend of airlines ending the transport of laboratory monkeys and it is exciting to see.

Sign this petition and thank ATSG for ending its transport of monkeys. Small changes like this make a huge difference for animals internationally.


Dear Mr. Hete,

Recently, your company announced that it will no longer be shipping laboratory monkeys. This was very exciting news to hear. Thankfully, more and more airlines are deciding to no longer ship lab monkeys.

Monkeys used in experimentation are typically kept in small cages, deprived of food and water, infected with diseases, pumped with drugs, cut open, poisoned, mutilated and killed. The life of laboratory monkeys are filled with pain, neglect and confusion.

Thank you for ending the transport of laboratory monkeys. Your decision has helped animals all over the world.

  1. Come on end that with all animals it’s more than horrible. We must NEVER forget animals in laboratories/vivisection, never. Buy cruelty-free and don’t support research with funds really important. I think it’s the minimum that we can do as citizens. ALF can help them too. Just to give them a chance to escape from emotionless humans even if many of them already lose hope in these cages and i perfectly understand but if you see a person who seems to want free you from your abusers of course you’re gonna take this chance.
