25. Help Stop Animal Testing By Donating Redundant Human Tissue 26. Many different ways for cosmetic research on animals Putting harsh chemicals in rabbit eyes because rabbits dont have tear ducts and cannot relieve pain in their eyes Scraping skin off of different animals until their skin is ultra-sensitive, then they apply dangerous chemicals to their skin and make sure they cant rub or itch their skin. The chemicals are kept there for a long period of time to be sure they dont irritate human skin. They sometimes test even finished products on animals, which can make their skin and fur crusty and irritated. Animals are kept in small, locked areas and are not allowed to leave unless they are needed to have something tested on them. Animals are hung, chained and bolted on to walls so they dont move while scientists conduct experiments. Irritating perfumes with high alcohol percentages are tested on animals

27. Over 100 million animals are burned, crippled, poisoned and abused in U.S. labs every year. 92 percent of experimental drugs that are safe and effective in animals fail in human clinical trials because they are too dangerous or dont work. Labs that use mice, rats, birds, reptiles and amphibians are exempted from the minimal protections under the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). Up to 90 percent of animals used in U.S. labs arent counted in the official statistics of animals tested. Its mandatory for all products to be tested on animals in China. Meanwhile, the European Union issued a ban on the sale of new cosmetics that are tested on animals. Even animals that are protected under the AWA can be abused and tortured. And the law doesnt require the use of valid alternatives to animals, even if they are available. According to the Humane Society, registration of a single pesticide requires more than 50 experiments and the use of as many as 12, 000 animals. Several cosmetic tests commonly performed on mice, rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs include: a. skin and eye irritation tests where chemicals are rubbed on shaved skin or dripped into the eyes without any pain relief. b. repeated force-feeding studies that last weeks or months, to look for signs of general illness or specific health hazards. c. widely condemned lethal dose tests, where animals are forced to swallow

large amounts of a test chemical to determine what dose causes death. In tests of potential carcinogens, subjects are given a substance every day for two years. Others tests involve killing pregnant animals and testing their fetuses. The real life applications for some of the tested substances are as trivial as an improved laundry detergent, new eye shadow, or copycat drug to replace a profitable pharmaceutical whose patent expired. Alternative tests are those that achieve one or more of the three Rs: d. replaces a procedure that uses animals with a procedure that doesnt use animals e. reduces the number of animals used in a procedure f. refines a procedure to alleviate or minimize potential animal pain

28. There are 50 no-kill animal organizations in SF alone 29.
