An Eighth-grader from Alabama contacted Animal Law Coalition to gather information about Premarin mares. Our young advocate had heard about the cruel conditions the mares were kept in while their urine was collected to make menopausal treatment drugs. This animal loving 8th grader asked all the right questions. They then asked how they could help educate people about the plight of these magnificent horses. We mentioned building a website to tell the world about Premarin mares is a great way to advocate for the horses. After a few months we received an e-mail proudly announcing the launching of a new animal advocacy website built by this Alabama 8th grade student! You can visit the site at www.chaserguida.wix.com/stoppmu
Let this be an inspiration to all of us.
