The IAVS campaigns peacefully for the law to be changed so that all animal experiments will be abolished.
We believe it is morally wrong to deliberately inflict pain, suffering, emotional harm and death on animals for whatever purpose. Animal experiments, by definition, cannot be separated from some degree of pain and suffering. Using animals as substitutes for human beings in research and testing is scientifically questionable and experimental results are unreliable due to the numerous ‘species differences’ between animals and ourselves.
Here you can find a list of the current campaigns that we are involved with.
