Animal Tests

All procedures have the potential to cause animals physical as well as psychological distress.

Alternative Methods

Animal tests are increasingly being replaced with quicker, cheaper and more reliable non-animal methods.

Support Our Work

Animal Alliance of Canada and HSI is making important progress for animals in Canada, but millions more animals need our help, and we need your support to save them.

Become a Lab Animal Defender

Yes, I want to donate to Animal Alliance to help create a future without animal testing.

Every year rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice, and other animals undergo painful procedures in research and testing laboratories in Canada. Their entire lives are spent in isolation — and their suffering is endless.

Animal Alliance is at the forefront of the Canadian effort to end cruel, outdated and unnecessary animal tests — for good. Your donation helps make our lifesaving work possible. Please consider making a donation today.
