Animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

Who Cares About Mice and Rats?

Every year, millions of rats and mice have their stomachs pumped full of dangerous chemicals, are forced to inhale them, or have them spread on their skin, causing painful rashes and even bloody sores. Animals often endure severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, convulsions, seizures, paralysis, and bleeding from the nose, mouth, and genitals before they ultimately die in painful and unnecessary product tests.

Like dogs and cats, rats and mice can feel pain, and studies show that they are clever and great mothers and that they would risk their own lives to save their friends. Mice and rats make up the majority of all animals used in experimentation but are excluded from most laws aimed at protecting animals used in laboratories.

Who cares about mice and rats? Sign the below pledge, and show your respect for these gentle and intelligent animals. By pledging never to buy products tested on animals—and encouraging your friends and family not to do so either—you'll be sending a powerful message to the cosmetics and household-product companies that profit from the suffering caused by painful and unnecessary tests on our rodent friends.

The Pledge

Testing on animals is cruel and unnecessary. By signing this pledge, I am refusing to spend my money on companies that make animals suffer for their products or to support corporations that abuse animals.
