Pets Used in Experiments #BtC4A

Animal lovers don’t want to see animals suffer. Many prefer to look the other way. But ignoring it doesn’t make this disgusting horror disappear. Animals do suffer. All the time. All over the world.

And you know what? Ignorance isn’t bliss. Not for the poor animal.

stop testing on animals!

Stop testing on animals!

Picture yourself being terrified. Locked up. Confined to a lifetime of barbaric torture. I won’t describe the horror here because I can’t, but if you want to see the reality of animal testing go HERE. But be warned if you are easily upset  😥

For some “animal lovers”, as long as it’s not an animal that is considered a pet that’s suffering, so what?  I’ve never understood that. All animals matter to me.

But I am focusing on cats and dogs here because the horrific truth is that these poor creatures are also being used in experiments and scientific research. Yes, it’s not just mice, rats, monkeys. Dogs and cats. Not that it makes no difference, as I said. To me, all animals are the same. Souls who want to live a decent life on this planet. Like us, they deserve a happy, healthy life. They feel. They love. They care for their children. They feel pain.

Some dogs and cats are specifically bred to be laboratory animals. This is a sickening fact that not many people are aware of.

For example, did you know that in the United States many dog pounds and shelters kill healthy dogs who haven’t been claimed or haven’t found forever homes?

According to Cruelty-Free International, “some of these dogs’ bodies are supplied to commercial companies that then sell them on to colleges and universities for dissection classes.”

Things must change

We must stop burying our heads in the sand because it won’t go away. These animals need our help. To help these poor animals. we must all face reality and speak up.

And just look what can happen if we do.  Just watch this beautiful cat who was rescued from a lifetime of torture in a laboratory. How does it make you feel?

And here’s Shira and Jax taking their first steps to freedom, away from the horrors they were forced to endure as lab animals.

What can you do?

Speak Up For Animals #BtC4A

I am reposting this from my other blog (Athena’s), so it is in her own words!

Help the Animal Welfare Party be a VOICE FOR ANIMALS!

Animal Welfare Party


If you are a true animal lover then you will want what’s best for all animals. Not just your pet.

Mum is a member of The Animal Welfare Party, a UK political party for people, animals and the environment. We both want to help spread the word for all the animals in the world because we cannot speak up for ourselves (well, we can, but humans don’t really communicate in the way that we do and many, to be honest, are ingnorant and selfish and care only for their own needs.

But we know there are true animal angels out there that really want to do what’s best for their furry (and not so furry) friends. Without them, what chance do we have?

From the AWP website:

The AWP believes in a better future for people, animals and the environment. Our policies are aimed at creating a fairer, more equitable and sustainable society in which the interests of the environment, people and animals are taken into account.

Our key policies include:

  • Redirecting subsidies from livestock and fisheries farming to plant-based agriculture
  • Promoting healthy plant-based lifestyle initiatives in schools, GP practices and the workplace
  • Phasing out animal experimentation with binding targets for reduction and funding and support for alternatives
  • Phasing out farming practices with poor welfare consequences for animals
  • Increasing penalties for those convicted of animal cruelty

If you live in the UK and want to speak up for animals please visit the AWP website
