Victories for animals in labs!   
   

Dear Anthony,

BREAKING: Switzerland has pledged to ban the sale of cosmetics containing ingredients newly tested on animals, which will spare rabbits, guinea pigs, mice and rats unnecessary pain and suffering.

This would make Switzerland the 35th country to take legal action toward helping end cosmetic animal testing since the launch of HSI's global campaign in 2012.


Read more about Switzerland’s monumental decision to #BeCrueltyFree!

After years of pressure from HSI and others, Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency has also committed to ending a mandatory one-year toxicity test using beagle dogs.

Currently, the agency requires that manufacturers conduct the toxicity test for all food-related pesticides — such as crop sprays. Beagles are bred specifically for this test, which typically begins when they are six months old.

Thanks to HSI's continued work with the government, these dogs will no longer be given food mixed with pesticides daily for a year while suffering in this prolonged poisoning test.

Canada joins the United States, the European Union and India, which have already stopped requiring this test, and Brazil which has also committed to ending this redundant and scientifically unnecessary safety test.
Learn more about how these victories are changing the game towards better lives for animals in labs.

And this is just the beginning. We will continue our fight to spare the lives of animals in laboratories across the globe whether they endure animal testing for cosmetics, pesticides, or other purposes.

Thank you for all that you do for animals.

Sincerely,

Andrew Rowan   
President and CEO
