The online magazine elephant journal is running with a comprehensive list of firms that engage in live animal testing. Please follow the link, and familiarize yourself with the names of those companies.
Please, do not buy their products.
Write them letters, and tell them why you are not buying their products.
Contact news organizations, and give them copies of those letters and any response you may receive.
As everyone who reads this blog well knows, I am particularly fond of rabbits. To me, the above photograph is horrific. The patriarch of my house rabbit clan -- Old Rabbit -- was himself an escapee from a laboratory. He was blind in one eye as a result of cosmetics testing.
Rabbits are extremely intelligent creatures. They know much, much more than people commonly suppose.
Please look at the faces of the laboratory rabbits in the above photograph.
If we are to live in a humane society, the use of animals in laboratory testing cannot be allowed to continue. It does not matter if they are rabbits or some other animals. This simply cannot be permitted to go on.
If enough of us make waves -- if together, we can raise public awareness, and arrange economic impact by means of organized boycotts -- then the companies using animals for testing purposes will no longer have any incentive to do so.
We have to put a stop to this.
