All animals feel pain and fear, just as humans do, and their overwhelming natural instincts are to be free and to protect their own lives. Yet millions of rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, and other animals are locked inside laboratories, facing horrifying procedures that can leave them in severe pain and cause them psychological distress.
When they’re no longer needed for an experiment or are too weak to continue, they’re usually killed and disposed of like expendable laboratory equipment.
