PETA scientists are at the forefront of both kindness and cutting-edge science. And our new global advocacy aimed at engaging with many medical charities and encouraging them to support superior, animal-free, human-relevant research is successfully bringing more of them into the fold.
Following discussions with PETA, the medical charities listed below have adopted compassionate new policies that prohibit funding, conducting, and commissioning animal experiments not expressly required by law, proving that no they will voluntarily participate in animal tests. Medical charities marked with an asterisk (*) previously conducted animal testing but ended their support after speaking with us.
Referring to this list, which is not exhaustive, will help ensure that your charitable donations benefit people nothing harming animals. If you would like to support charities that you do not see listed here, please contact them directly and ask if they prohibit funding, conducting, and commissioning animal tests, and let us know what they say. Be sure to let medical charities know that you will not support them as long as they use animals in laboratory experiments.
