Help animals facing monstrous, deadly experiments

No fiction writer could create a story more horrifying than what animals around the world endure in monstrous new genetic engineering experiments.

For a female mouse, the nightmare begins when experimenters inject her with hormones and then cut into her abdomen to rip out her eggs. Other mice will become unwilling surrogates when experimenters surgically implant modified embryos in their wombs.

The forced pregnancies in these cruel „Frankenscience“ experiments often fail because as few as 1 percent of the animals who are born may carry the genes of interest to experimenters. Those who don’t are killed shortly after birth—discarded like laboratory waste.

The genetically modified animals who survive past infancy are also doomed. Many suffer with missing eyes or ears, skin ulcers, deformed body parts, deafness, seizures, and sometimes even heart failure.

We have succeeded in ending many kinds of animal experimentation. Now, we must attack this new monster head-on and work to end all abuse of animals in experiments—and your support today will help us do just that. Please donate to „Cut It Out“—PETA’s Animal Test Challenge right now.

Not only is it hideously cruel to experiment on animals in these ways, it’s also bad science because the genes of non-human animals don’t act the same way that human genes do, and key biochemical, metabolic, and physiological differences can render entire experiments absolutely useless.

Many human-relevant, non-animal methods already exist, while others are in development—and we at PETA are vigorously doing all that we can to promote their use, often having massive success. Many of these innovative, sophisticated tests—including some developed with funding from PETA’s international affiliates—rely on human cells and tissues (also known as in vitro methods), advanced computer-modelling techniques (often referred to as in silico models), and studies with human subjects. Unlike experiments on animals, these approaches aren’t hindered by differences between species, and in addition to being more ethical, they can also be more cost-efficient—and relevant!

Scientists with PETA’s international affiliates are publishing research that shows the effectiveness of animal-free test methods, and they are encouraging governments and companies around the world to adopt these compassionate techniques.

Will you please strengthen our work to end the torment of animals in laboratories and promote animal-free testing by donating to PETA’s Animal Test Challenge today?

Together, we will spare many more animals horrendous suffering at the hands of experimenters.

Thank you for your compassion.

Animal Experimenters Try to Force Airlines to Transport Monkeys to Their Deaths

They’re so desperate to get monkeys—who are nothing more than lab tools to them—that they’re going to court

A group supported by animal experimenters whose sole purpose is to promote the use of animals in laboratories is trying to force airlines to transport monkeys and other animals to laboratories. Please take action right now at the link below to oppose this.

Like humans, monkeys deserve protection from forced participation in violent experiments. Please take action now by leaving polite comments—in defense of airlines’ choice not to contribute to senseless deaths—on this website:

Note: Please check the box indicating you want to provide your contact information and choose “public comment” as the category.

For years, nearly every commercial airline has refused to fly monkeys and other animals to laboratories, where they would face torment and death.

Urgent Alert

For years, nearly every commercial airline has refused to fly monkeys and other animals to laboratories, where they would face torment and death.

Now, a trade group representing animal experimenters that defends all experiments on animals, no matter how cruel, has filed a legal complaint with the U.S. Department of Transportation to force airlines to transport monkeys to laboratories. If they’re successful, airlines will be legally compelled to ship tens of thousands of monkeys from China and other countries to U.S laboratories where they’d be caged alone, poisoned, cut into, addicted to drugs, crippled, have devices implanted in their heads, kept thirsty to coerce them to obey, and eventually killed.

Please take action right now by leaving polite comments stating that you want airlines to be able to make their own policy decisions and that monkeys should never be torn from their families, shoved into tiny wooden boxes, stuffed into the dark and terrifying cargo holds of commercial airplanes, and flown thousands of miles to certain suffering and death in laboratories.

Act Now!

For the animals,

Tonight and in the days ahead, as Hurricane Florence’s torrential rains batter the coast and streets disappear under historic storm surges, thousands of animals will be left to ride out the terrifying storm alone—often on a chain in a rapidly flooding backyard. Some won’t make it.

Help animals survive the storm

Over the next few days, many will struggle to survive as the waters make lying or sitting down impossible, as yards become rivers, and as they hope that someone will provide them with the food and rescue that they’ll desperately need.

Thanks to your support during our recent campaign, PETA’s rescue team is in North Carolina right now.

URGENT: Abandoned Dolphin and Penguins Need Your Help

A dolphin called Honey, 46 penguins, and hundreds of fish and reptiles have been abandoned at Inubosaki Marine Park Aquarium in Chōshi, Japan, after it shut down earlier this year.

dolphin named Honey

Former employees are reportedly feeding the animals, but Honey has been left imprisoned in a tiny, filthy pool with green, cloudy water, and penguins have been spotted in unsafe enclosures littered with debris.

Honey—who was captured in 2005 near Taiji during Japan’s annual dolphin slaughter—is growing increasingly frustrated and stressed from being deprived of everything that’s natural and important to her. If she’s transferred to another aquarium, she’ll likely spend the rest of her life in a tiny tank, being forced to perform circus-style tricks for food.

It’s vital that all the animals imprisoned at the run-down aquarium be released to sanctuaries, where they’d be protected, cared for, and free from harassment. PETA stands ready to help with their relocation.

Please ask the governor of Chiba Prefecture and the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums to take immediate action and transfer the animals to a sanctuary, where they can live out the rest of their days in peace.

Are Some Animal Experimenters Psychopaths?

The link between cruelty to animals and other violent crimes is well established. As the deputy executive director of the National Sheriffs’ Association stated, “If somebody is harming an animal, there is a good chance they also are hurting a human. If we see patterns of animal abuse, the odds are that something else is going on.”


That can even be true in the case of those who practice a form of cruelty to animals that is actually protected by law: vivisection. When animal experimenters cut up, burn, torment, and deliberately sicken animals, they’re almost never subject to punishment since that cruelty is being done under the guise of “research.”
