This Election, #MakeTheirVoiceCount
Dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, mice, rats, pigs, monkeys, fish, and birds are all experimented on right here in the US. Over the next four years, we can take big steps toward ending the use of animals in painful and outdated experiments. Together we can:
Increase Investment in Alternatives
New human-relevant alternatives to animal tests promise to deliver safer and more effective medicines, more quickly and at less cost, but are dramatically underfunded.
Prioritize Humane Sciences
Our SurveyUSA poll shows that an amazing 88% of Americans support a federal law requiring scientists to use non-animal methods wherever possible. #Hearts4HumaneScience
Ban Animal Testing for Cosmetics
USA poll reveals that nearly 80% of US adults support a federal law to end animal testing for cosmetics. #HumaneCosmeticsActNow
Send the Survivors Home
We can ensure that laboratories allow animals such as dogs, cats, and rabbits to be sent to loving homes rather than killed when no longer wanted for experiments. #SendSurvivorsHome
End Painful Outdated Tests
Dogs and monkeys are often used in “second species toxicity tests” that do not help determine if chemicals and drugs are safe for people.
Save Tax Dollars
At least 12 billion tax dollars fund cruel and unreliable animal experiments in the U.S.every year. Modern non-animal methods are better and often less costly.
