Exposed: Shocking New Animal Testing Video

Dear Friend,

As you read this e-mail, thousands of individual dogs, cats, monkeys, rabbits, mice, and other animals are suffering in laboratories. These sensitive animals are treated as little more than living lab equipment, often known to experimenters only by a number written on their cage door or sometimes tattooed on their skin. For most, the only release from their misery will come in death, the only record of their life and passing some numbers jotted in an experimenter's log.

But PETA's new video is making their cries heard and building our campaign to save animals. (

Testing on animals is not only cruel but also pointless and unreliable—and it's bad science. But through your support today, we can help stop it.

By making an online donation to PETA's Global "Stop Animal Tests" Challenge right now (, your contribution to help fight tests on animals will be doubled—dollar for dollar. PETA is determined to raise $250,000 by November 1, and every gift that we receive until we meet our goal will go twice as far to help save more animals in laboratories.

This year alone, more than 100 million animals will be killed in deadly chemical, cosmetics, pesticide, and food-additive tests, among other harmful experiments. These helpless animals, some just babies when first subjected to testing, will often live their entire lives inside a cage in a laboratory. They are force-fed substances, injected with toxins, and infected with diseases, as well as having chemicals sprayed into their eyes and electrodes inserted in their brains. Some have tissue cut from their bodies without any anaesthetics. As you can see in our latest video (, those who somehow survive are left severely damaged—both physically and emotionally.

We know that effective and humane alternatives to vivisection are available—alternatives that are both more reliable and less expensive. Even the U.S. government's own scientific advisory board, the National Academy of Sciences, has noted that many animal tests are useless and should be replaced by superior non-animal methods. Yet governments, universities, and corporations are still slow to adopt these lifesaving alternatives—and are killing millions of animals as a result. Won't you help our vital work to save them by giving to our online challenge today? (

PETA is leading the global fight to stop the suffering of animals in laboratories. Our undercover investigators are exposing the horrific world of animal experimentation facilities and their suppliers, blowing the lid off the horror that is vivisection, and leading to the closure of laboratories and the prosecution of their employees. PETA's world-class team of scientists is expertly promoting the adoption of non-animal testing methods to government officials, corporate leaders, and...
