We’ve heard it all.
Animal Alliance has been rescuing animals from research facilities since 2002. We know “the business” of animals used in research, teaching and testing (and it is big business). So when a researcher says “these animals can’t adjust to a life outside a lab”, we know that’s a lie. When a researcher says “we do research only on animals no one else wants, animals who can’t be adopted”, we know that’s a lie too. We know this because the animals who we have rescued from these places are able to overcome the horrors of research facilities. Their adoptive homes share stories with us regularly on their progress adjusting to their new lives, free from pain (both physical and psychological). We know the workers in pounds and shelters who call us, frantic, trying to save an “unadoptable” dog or cat before they can be sold off and lost into the system forever. And we know families who have lost their companion animals to research — something no family — and no companion animal — should go through.
We’ve rescued dogs, cats, sheep and we’ve even helped a group that rescues monkeys. All these animals have one thing in common: they all deserved better.
Life outside a cage.
A supporter, Maureen, shared her moving story with us. She opened her heart and her home to a dog who was no longer needed by the research facility. To read their story, click here.
