A Reluctant Vivisector

Critter News

At least someone who has conducted animal research has a conscience and is willing to write about it.

When You Have to Make a Choice About Your Beliefs

Critter News

I've decided to quit my book club, which I dearly love, because of a member who works in medical research and supports animal experimentation.

Animal Person

Beloved family pet Dalmatian, Pepper, is stolen, and after several weeks of searching is discovered to have been experimented on at a hospital and died on the table when researchers tried to implant her with an experimental cardiac pacemaker.
