For Pete’s Sake, Stop Animal Testing

AAVS works to end the use of animals in science through education, advocacy, and the development of alternative methods. AAVS believes:

PROTECTION IS IMPORTANT, BUT NOT ENOUGH.

While the welfare of animals in labs needs greater attention, animal research can’t be ethically justified with claims of scientific advancement. The Humane Cosmetics Act will end animal testing for makeup.

EDUCATION CAN CHANGE THE STATUS QUO.

Our education division, Animalearn helps to pass dissection choice laws. Currently, 18 states give students the right to opt out of animal dissection. Is your state one?

TECHNOLOGY HELPS ADVANCE ALTERNATIVES.

Animal tests are based on archaic methodologies rooted in tradition. Modern technology brings a multi-layered approach to scientific investigation. The Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act will help to advance science and save animals.

EVERY ANIMAL COUNTS.

There is no law protecting animals used in agriculture research. The AWARE Act will help change this.
