Deep inside the laboratories of the University of Pittsburgh, thousands of animals including mice, monkeys, dogs, cats, rats, and rabbits—are cut open, injected with chemicals,
The Truth About Animal Testing
Millions of mice, rats, rabbits, primates, cats, dogs, and other animals wait in loneliness and fear inside laboratories cages for the next terrifying and painful procedure that will be performed on them.

There are non-animal testing methods that are potentially cheaper, faster and may also be more relevant to humans. Animals suffer and die in cruel chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics tests. We continue to perform medical training exercises, experiments, and dissection even though modern non-animal tests have shown to have more educational value, save time, and money. There is no guarantee that a product will be safe for humans even after it has been tested to be safe on animals.
