Please contact PETA if you know the address of a charity that is not listed, including local health service organizations. We will be happy to inquire about the charity’s animal testing policy, but we also encourage you to inquire with the charity directly, as it is important that charities hear from compassionate citizens who are opposed to animal testing.
You may wish to use the following questions as a guideline for personal inquiries to charities:
· Does the charity perform tests on animals?
· Does the charity fund any organizations that are involved with and/or contributing to animal research projects?
· If the charity does not use animal tests, does this decision reflect a permanent commitment to use only humane alternatives?
Please forward correspondence and/or responses to PETA’s Caring Consumer Project. Depending upon the charity’s response, we will either add the organization to our "do test" list or contact its representatives and encourage them to adopt the Humane Charity Seal of Approval.
