RSPCA Collects 68,000 Signatures Supporting an End to Animal Research

Critter News

The RSPCA collected these signatures leading up to the the 7th World Congress on Alternatives & Animal Use in the Life Sciences in Rome. That's an even larger number if you realize that each signature probably represents a few non-signers who feel the same way. I really believe the more people learn about what research animals go through, the more common decency becomes a factor. The problem is that people don't really look at the pictures, read the stories or think about what's happening.

Our house stinks, but not anymore!

Since I am a BzzAgent, I was able to try out the new Glade Expressions® Collection recently (for free). Our house suffers from a good amount of stink. And no, it’s not the pets!
