Many people are simply unaware that many health charities test on animals. The links below provide more information on this. Please visit them for more information on this issue. We have also listed links to lists that will let you know what charities do or do not test on animals.
Perhaps the best place to start for information on charities and animal testing is via the group, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine at http://www.pcrm.org.
