Cruelty free beauty

    1. Petition by

      Brooklyn, NY

.A wake up call to companies who should and could eliminate the needless testing on animals. Animals have as much right to life as human beings. In the U.S. alone, the number of animals tested on each year range between 17-70 million, and the Animal Welfare Act appears to set a minimum requirement for humane treatment in labs and other settings. When locked up, these animals suffer tremendous stress. Can we know they don't feel pain? Experiments on animals can be misleading. We don't know if their response to a drug is the same as that of a human being. These animals are not given anesthesia, as scientists feel it would interfere with test results, which in turn, causes them excrutiating pain, followed by certain death, when the experimentation is over.

Please help me spread the word about these "forgotten" animals..via email, facebook, twitter, etc.  One more day of suffering...is one day too long. Thank you for your support!

      As a "pet parent" to a dog & two guinea pigs, I find it unconscionable that animals are used in testing products when there are other methods available that are just as, if not MORE, effective and don't involve torturing living beings. This testing is disgraceful and immoral & must stop.
