Animals Used for Research

Millions of animals suffer and die for scientific research every year. Dogs, cats, monkeys, mice, pigs, rabbits, sheep, horses, and more, are held captive in laboratories where they are forced to undergo agonizing experiments to produce new drugs and cosmetics. Testing on animals is cruel, ineffective, and wasteful. Please take action for animals who suffer and die in laboratories!

Animals in labs are exposed to potentially fatal diseases and harmful chemicals to observe the results. They may be subjected to surgical procedures without painkillers, intentionally injured, or undergo other experimental techniques. After the torturous testing ends, the animals are typically killed.

In the United States, over 95% of drugs deemed safe and effective for use in animals fail during human clinical trials. Since the anatomy and physiology of animals in labs differ from that of humans, animal studies are not reliable indicators of human response. Modern testing methods, including computer models and simulations, human volunteers, human cell-based tests, and organ-on-a-chip technologies, are available and better predict human response to drugs and chemicals. 

Terrified rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, and rats are also subjected to agonizing tests to produce cosmetics. Chemicals are dropped into their eyes, onto their skin, and forced down their throats, causing painful burns, lesions, and illnesses. Thousands of ingredients have already been proven safe for human use, which cosmetics manufacturers can use without further testing. 

Please take action for the vulnerable animals who needlessly suffer in laboratories today!
