Doris Carey: Ensuring a More Compassionate Future
Thirty years ago, Doris Carey heard Dr. Neal Barnard speak about the cruelties of animal experiments conducted in the name of medical education. What he said changed the way she viewed the world.
Since that day nearly 30 years ago, when she learned that medical students—the very people we count on to be healers—were killing animals in their training, she has been a staunch supporter of PCRM’s efforts to reform medical education. She’s celebrated every success and cheered on every institution that was persuaded to embrace compassion over cruelty. Today, the number of schools using animals can be counted on just one hand.
Ms. Carey explains, “I am so proud to be a member of an organization that is creating a better future for our grandchildren, and, of course, for animals. But I also understand how much work must still be done. Too many people still find it acceptable to treat animals without respect—to allow them to suffer.”
That’s why Ms. Carey has become a PCRM Lifetime Partner by including PCRM as a beneficiary in her will. “I want to do all I can to ensure that PCRM’s work continue even after I am gone. It’s important to me that I leave a legacy of compassion for future generations, and PCRM’s development office offered me the guidance I needed.”
