Help Animals Used in Experiments
Right now, tens of millions of mice, rats, rabbits, monkeys, cats, dogs, and other animals are locked inside barren cages in laboratories across the country. They live in fear and very often in pain, ache with loneliness, and long to be free from torment tests. Instead, all they can do is sit and wait in fear of the next terrifying and painful procedure. Each of us can help prevent animal suffering and deaths by donating only to charities that don’t experiment on animals, requesting alternatives to animal dissection, demanding the immediate implementation of humane, effective non-animal tests by government agencies and corporations, calling on our alma maters to stop experimenting on animals, and buying cruelty-free products.
Leave Animal Skins on the Shelf
Always check labels when purchasing clothing. If an item includes fur, wool, leather, down, cashmere, mohair, or silk, don’t buy it. Billions of animals suffer for the clothing industry, and vegan alternatives are easier to find than ever.
Take action! Contact Nordstrom and urge it to ban fur from its stores.
Take the next step and call Nordstrom’s customer service line at 1-888-282-6060. Let the company know that animals in the fur industry spend their entire lives confined to filthy cages before finally being beaten, electrocuted, gassed, or skinned alive. And after you make your call, please let us know how it went:
Refuse to Attend Shows That Exploit Animals
Animals held prisoner in pseudo-sanctuaries, traveling shows, and roadside displays are forced to spend their lives trapped behind bars to entertain the public. They endure relentless frustration, neglect, and sometimes even abuse from the people who are supposed to be caring for them. This stress causes many of them to rock, sway, or pace endlessly—a condition called “zoochosis.” Some even resort to hurting themselves by chewing on their own body parts or pulling out their fur or feathers.
