Dogs have a similar level of understanding as 3-year old children, but every year thousands suffer in cruel animal testing all around the world. Please help us fight this injustice this Christmas.
In the UK, dogs may be injected with or force-fed substances and then watched for side-effects such as vomiting, diarrhoea, internal bleeding and organ damage, seizures, paralysis – and even death. The dogs that survive are killed so that the effects of the substances on their bodies can be examined.
Dogs can sense sadness and fear. There is also increasing evidence that they can even feel empathy*. We cannot stand by and allow this cruelty to continue – will you help us?
Please make a donation this Christmas to help stop animals from suffering. We rely entirely on the generosity of our supporters to create a world where nobody wants or believes we need to experiment on animals. Every single donation received, whether large or small, helps animals in laboratories.
