Imagine a syringe being forced down your throat and a massive chemical dose pumped into your stomach, or being squeezed into restraints and forced to breathe toxic vapours for hours. From drugs to pesticides and household cleaners, chemicals and products of all descriptions are still being tested in massive doses on dogs, mice, rabbits and other animals.

HSI's Science Team has been instrumental in securing the largest-ever reduction in government animal testing requirements through our public policy efforts in Europe. Now we're working to extend these life-saving precedents globally and spare countless more animals in North and South America, Asia, and beyond.

  • Chemicals

    New laws are requiring companies to submit large quantities of test data, which could mean suffering and death for tens of millions of animals.

  • Pesticides

    10,000 or more dogs, rabbits and other animals may be killed to meet government requirements for the safety testing of a single new pesticide chemical.

  • Shellfish Toxins

    Hundreds of thousands of mice each year die in agony after they are injected with extracts of shellfish meat to test for harmful toxins, yet superior non-animal tests exist.
