Who does vivisection? Companies which test on animals

COMPANIES THAT DO TEST ON ANIMALS

Why are these companies included on the ‘Do Test’ list?

The following companies manufacture products that ARE tested on animals. Those marked with a check (*) are currently observing a moratorium on (i.e., current suspension of) animal testing. Please encourage them to announce a permanent ban. Listed in parentheses are examples of products manufactured by either the company listed or, if applicable, its parent company. Companies on this list may manufacture individual lines of products without animal testing (e.g., Clairol claims that its Herbal Essences lines are not animal tested). They have not, however, eliminated animal testing on their entire line of cosmetics and household products.

Similarly, companies on this list may make some products, such as pharmaceuticals, that are required by law to be tested on animals. However, the reason for these companies’ inclusion is not the required animal testing that they conduct, but rather the animal testing of personal care and household products that is not required by law.

What can be done about animal tests required by law?

Although animal testing of pharmaceuticals and certain chemicals is still mandated by law, the arguments against using animals in cosmetics testing are still valid when applied to the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. These industries are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency, respectively, and it is the responsibility of the companies that kill animals in order to bring their products to market to convince the regulatory agencies that there is a better way to determine product safety. PETA is actively working on this front by funding development and validation of non-animal test methods and providing input through our involvement on government advisory committees at both the national and international levels. Companies resist progress because the crude nature of animal tests allows them to market many products that might be determined to be too toxic if cell culture tests were to be used. Let companies know how you feel about this.

A free online book Animal Research Takes Lives - Humans and Animals Both Suffer was written in response to the booklet Animal Research Saves Lives distributed in November 1990 by the New Zealand Ministry of Agriculture (MAF). “MAF's co-producers of this calculated advertising stunt that is aimed at destroying the growing anti-vivisection movement in this country include: The Cancer Society of New Zealand, the N.Z. Heart Foundation, the Medical Research Council of New Zealand, and the Agricultural Chemical and Animal Remedies Manufacturers Association of N.Z. (AGCARM).”

“AGCARM is New Zealand's arm of the vivisection industry. The powerful multinational conglomerate whose individual names occur repeatedly throughout this work. Its full membership is listed hereunder.“

“Without exception the creators of [Animal Research Saves Lives] are linked by a single common denominator, the absolute necessity of maintaining vivisection, euphemistically known as "animal research", acceptable to, unopposed and unchallenged by the public. For vivisection is the key to their profits.”

Companion-Animal Food Manufacturers

from PETA's "Companies That Do/Don't Test on Animals"

Even a number of pet food producers test on animals...

What’s wrong with “pet” food?

Most caring consumers would never guess that lonely dogs and cats are confined to tiny, barren laboratory cages for years on end and subjected to horrible experiments in order to test dog and cat food.

To expose this tragedy, PETA conducted a nine-month undercover investigation of a laboratory that performed cruel animal tests for Iams and other major companion-animal food companies.

What our investigator uncovered would outrage anyone with a heart:

  • Lonely dogs driven mad from confinement in barren steel and cement cells
  • Dogs dumped on cold concrete flooring after having chunks of muscle cut out of their thighs
  • Experimenters who severed dogs’ vocal cords in order to keep them quiet
  • Sick dogs who were languishing in their cages without veterinary care

These animals suffered so that Iams and other companion-animal food companies could slap “new and improved” labels on their products.

The following companies make top-quality food for dogs and cats—without harming animals in laboratories. Please help us drive animal abusers out of business by buying only from these companies. Companies not on this list either responded that they do conduct laboratory experiments on animals or they failed to respond to our numerous inquiries and are assumed to conduct laboratory experiments on animals.

For more information about how dog and cat food is contaminated with cruelty and to find the most up-to-date list of companies that don’t test on animals, check out www.IamsCruelty.com.
