Top 5 Shocking Animal Experimentation Facts

Did you know that millions of animals—including dogs and cats just like the ones we share our homes with—are tormented in U.S. laboratories annually for cruel experiments? Get informed!

Animal Testing

Here are the top five shocking animal experimentation facts that you should know:

  1. More than 100 million animals are poisoned, burned, crippled, and abused in other ways in U.S. labs each year.
  2. No experiment is illegal, no matter how cruel, irrelevant to human health, redundant, or painful.
  3. Ninety-five percent of animals used for experiments are excluded from the only federal law offering any sort of protection.
  4. Even when valid alternatives to animals are available, the law doesn’t require that they be used.
  5. Ninety-two percent of experimental drugs that are safe and effective on animals fail in human clinical trials because they don’t work or are dangerous.

Watch now to see firsthand how animals are treated in laboratories:

    Oh my god… I’m disgusted. Animals do NOT deserve that.
    Maybe we should test on those humans and show them how it feels! 😐
