PETA scientists are on the vanguard of both kindness and leading-edge science. And our new global advocacy aimed at contacting numerous medical charities and swaying them to support superior, animal-free, human-relevant research is successfully bringing more of them into the fold.
Following discussions with PETA, the medical charities listed below have adopted compassionate new policies that prohibit the funding, conducting, and commissioning of experiments on animals that are not explicitly required by law, confirming they won’t voluntarily take part in animal tests. Medical charities marked with an asterisk (*) previously pursued animal testing but ended their support after talks with us.
Referring to this list, which is not exhaustive, can help ensure that your charity donations benefit humans without harming animals. If you want to support charities that you don’t see listed here, please contact them directly and ask if they prohibit the funding, conducting, and commissioning of animal tests, and let us know what they say. Be sure to let medical charities know that you won’t support them as long as they use animals in laboratory experiments.
