Despite so many protests and demonstrations to stop animal testing, there are so many famous drug companies and cosmetic brands that continue to test their products on animals or use animal parts in their products. From testing beauty products on them to inducing them with various diseases to test related drugs, animals have always been the lab rats for us. They have been enduring pain and sacrificing their lives for us. Here is why we should stop animal testing.
Animal Testing is Unethical
The animals feel pain and their overwhelming natural instincts are to roam free, eat what nature offers and be free. It is unethical to cage them and keep them in the laboratories, causing them loneliness, fear, and pain.
It is Not as Fruitful
Animals do not contract most diseases that humans get, such as heart diseases, certain cancers, Parkinson’s disease, and a few others. These diseases are injected into their bodies before the drugs are tested on them. On average, out of 100 drugs that are tested just about 95 drugs pass the test. For inconspicuous results achieved, there are too many animal lives that are taken or harmed in the process.
There are Alternatives
Despite understanding animal testing as ‘evil’ the society permitted it. Because this was possibly the only way to find cures for our diseases, make cosmetics or drugs. But it cannot be denied that animal testing is both cruel and exorbitant. Technology is at a highly advanced stage. And there is no denying that there are some good alternatives that are available today. There are several modern research methods that are humane and don’t require animals for testing. Some alternatives that are available and effective these days are the usage of ‘synthetic cellular tissue’, ‘In vitro testing’, ‘organs on chips’, and many more similar technologies. Such technologies are not just effective but also fast, accurate, and cheaper than animal testing. Moreover, the lives of animals are spared.
Animal Club does not support animal testing
We at Animal Club have a team of animal caretakers who love and care for all animals. We do not support animal testing and encourage a ban on it.
If you, too, are an animal lover and love to interact with animals, then you can call us over for animal parties and animal handling workshop. Both adults and children will love the animals that we bring. You can even tell us if you are looking forward certain types of animals so we can arrange for them accordingly. All our animals are approved by the local authorities. We also ensure they are taken care of properly and provided with all amenities required for their growth and well-being.
Schools can also call us for animal school visit or animal workshop for school projects. We have beautiful animals in our team such as – rabbits, bearded dragons, tarantulas, geckos, snakes, vinegaroons, and many more. You can also arrange an animal party theme or a birthday party where you can have us over with these lovely animals. One of our best offerings is the mobile zoo, where we travel to your choice of a spot with the animals. However, the animals will differ depending on the area you live in. We do not travel with the animals as it gets tiring for, therefore, use animals that are available in the area.
