Animals in Research
Caged chimpanzee

We're working to pass legislation to decrease and eventually end the use of animals in testing, research and training by promoting the development of innovative and effective alternative methods.

Millions of animals suffering in laboratories need our help, including chimpanzees used in invasive research, rabbits and other animals used in cosmetic and product testing, pigs and goats used in military trauma training and pet dogs and cats sold to research laboratories by Class B dealers. We’re working with Congress to support non-animal research methods and end the most egregious research practices. We’ve made great strides, but much more needs to be done to help animals used in experiments.

#ReformTSCAImprove the Science Behind Chemical Testing to Help Animals

Each year, tens of thousands of animals are killed to test industrial chemicals, including those found in common household products. But it doesn't have to be that way. Urge Congress to pass Senate bill 697, which would reduce -- if not eliminate -- the use of animals in chemical testing.
