Rabbits Are Used for Horrific LD50 Toxicity Tests
In an attempt to estimate the dose of a chemical that will kill 50% of the animals exposed to it, experimenters may apply it to the shaved skin of rabbits and other small animals, potentially causing tremors, convulsions, salivation, diarrhoea, lethargy, and coma. Sign our petition to the UK government calling for an end to these cruel tests.Sign the Petition to the UK Government
Rabbits Are Poisoned and Killed in Tests for Cosmetics Ingredients
Pregnant rabbits are used in tests in which experimenters restrain them and force-feed them chemicals in order to see whether the substances will cause their babies to be born with abnormalities or even die. These mothers may suffer from convulsions, weight loss, and miscarriages. At the end of the pregnancy, they and their surviving unborn babies are killed. Please send a message to the European Commission (EC) and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) demanding an end to such tests.Contact the EC and ECHA
Etsy Allows the Sale of Rabbit Fur
Etsy allows its users to sell items made of real rabbit fur, despite hearing from PETA US that animals in the fur industry spend their entire lives confined to filthy cages before finally being beaten, electrocuted, gassed, or skinned alive. Items sold include rabbit-fur coats, scarves, trim, and other accessories. Please urge Etsy to stop its users from selling fur items.Tell Etsy to Ban Fur
