Spread this important message with this 4 panel design, featuring an adorable rat, mouse, pigeon and rabbit.
In the US alone, tens of millions of animals are forced to endure painful lab experiments. These include mice, rats, frogs, dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, monkeys, fish, pigs, sheep, birds and more. Most are killed when the experiments are over. Mice, rats and birds bred for research are not protected under the Animal Welfare Act, meaning they don't receive the minimal protections that it offers, and data and statistics do not need to be counted or shared. It is estimated they make up over 90% of animals used in research.
With new non-animal methods continuing to develop such as 3D printing, using human cells and tissues, computer modeling and more, let's hope animal testing becomes a thing of the past.
