|Massachusetts Animal Rights Coalition|
MARC is a volunteer group that works to end suffering for all animals: "food animals", animals in laboratories and entertainment, companion animals, fur animals and other wildlife. MARC is the largest and most active animal rights group in Massachusetts, with over 3500 members. MARC's members range from grade school students to grandparents and are as diverse as the animal issues we work on. But we are united in our love and concern for animals and our belief that animals should not be exploited by humans. We have organized and participated in protests and demonstrations at restaurants, meat retailers, vivisection and animal testing institutions and conferences, circuses and rodeos, consulates and government buildings, pet shops, sportsmen's shows, and furriers. The animals we have defended in this way include pigs, chickens, ducks, geese, cows, turkeys, wolves, seals, dolphins, all hunted species, lab animals (including primates), fur animals, veal (dairy) calves, companion animals (pets), and all circus animals.
