TAKE ACTION, SIGN THE PETITIONS!
At CBUK, we believe in the power of collective action to bring about positive change. By signing petitions advocating for the end of animal testing, you join a growing community dedicated to the welfare of our fellow beings.
Petitions serve as a powerful tool to amplify our voices, urging policymakers and industry leaders to prioritize ethical and humane replacements.
Every signature is a step towards a world where animals are spared from unnecessary suffering, and where innovative, cruelty-free methods take precedence. Together, we can make a meaningful impact and contribute to the global movement working towards ending animal testing for good.
Currently, institutions that use Beagles in testing, or breeders that supply them to the laboratories, are required by law to have a rehoming policy in order to be granted a license.
What happens though, is that the dogs are always euthanised rather than being rehomed.
Both Marshall BioRescources and Envigo (Inotiv) operate in the UK. Both of these businesses have criminal records for animal cruelty, yet are given UK Government Contracts and are funded by the taxpayer.
Animal cruelty is not acceptable to the British Public and nor should we be made to fund them.
The FDA estimated that 92% of drugs that pass preclinical tests, including “pivotal” animal tests, fail to proceed to the market. The main causes of failure are lack of effectiveness and safety problems that were not predicted by animal tests.
Not only is the continued use of animals responsible for an enormous amount of avoidable animal suffering but it is also responsible for a significant incidence of human adverse drug reactions. The pharmaceutical industry is best placed to make the paradigm change needed to replace outdated and unreliable animal tests with cost effective human relevant test methods, including human 3D cell culture, organs on chips, pharmacogenomics, and similar 21st century technologies that were previously unavailable.
Dr Andre Menache’s scientific opposition to animal experimentation led him to uncover serious methodological shortcomings in human experimentation, about which he has published several papers.
Experts in the wider scientific community, outside the animal-based research sector, openly agree that laboratory animal models are now demonstrated to hold no predictive value for human patients.
Parliamentary EDM 25 enables MPs to call for medical evidence to be heard, which will prove beyond doubt that animal experiments should be abandoned without delay.
