Right now, while you’re reading this, millions of mice, rats, rabbits, primates, cats, dogs, and other animals are locked inside cages in laboratories across the country. And why is this happening? So that the animals can sit and wait in fear of the next terrifying and painful procedure that will be performed on them. What are these procedures for? The answer to this is animal testing.

Examples of animal testing include forcing mice and rats to inhale toxic fumes, force-feeding pesticides to dogs, and dripping corrosive chemicals into rabbits’ sensitive eyes! It results in behavior such as incessantly spinning in circles, rocking back and forth, pulling out their own fur, and even biting themselves. After enduring a life of pain, loneliness, and terror, will kill almost all of them.
We can stop this by switching to cruelty-free products, and it’s easy.

Here is a list of cruelty-free products and links to purchase those products.
