Non Animal Testing Charities

 

There are hundreds, if not thousands of Health Charities in UK alone, there are so many that it can be very confusing with which one, as vegans, support financially. I mean, we should value every life and not only human life, so vegans shouldn’t give their money to a charity who kill innocent animals in order to test new drugs or procedures.

It has been published before that Relying on animal research and testing to protect and improve human health is not only unsafe, but also expensive, time-consuming, and unreliable.

If you do your research you’ll find that are more arguments against animal test that in favour. Some of the arguments against are:

  • Unreliable animal testing
  • Wasteful animal testing
  • Dangerous animal testing
  • Animals are different

If there are so many arguments against animal testing, why do companies continue to test products on animals?

Money !!!

According to PETA “Companies test on animals to provide data that they can use to defend themselves when they are sued by injured consumers”.

It is sad but true.

Another challenge that we face is when a friend or an work colleague ask for support this or that charity. If I know that the charity that he/she is asking to help support animal testing, I will say no straight away and often I got the reproval look in their eyes and the “But don’t you feel sorry for the kids dying with cancer?” my answer is simple and direct “I do feel for them but I can’t justify saving a human life in detriment of an animal life.”

I am used to their look anyway, I’m only doing and acting on what I believe and defend.

In order to help you identifying the charities that “do and don’t” support animal testing follows a link to a factfile provided by Animal Aid.

I hope that you make the most of it and support our cause by giving a huge Like or sharing this page with friends and family.
