October 4 is World Animal Day and people everywhere are celebrating their love for animals and their commitment to helping them.While we at AAVS love all animals, mice have a special place in our heart because they are the most used animals in research and testing. But AAVS is working to change this. Through our affiliate, the Alternatives Research & Development Foundation, millions of dollars in funding has been awarded to scientists developing new research methods to replace the use of mice and other animals in labs.
What about you? Tell us who is your favorite animal, why you love them, and share on social media!
