SHOP CRUELTY FREE!
Supporting companies who test their products for safety without animals and boycotting those who continue to engage in animal testing is simply the most important step you can take to end animal experimentation.
Some companies now label their products as not tested on animals. You can find many of these at your local grocery store, drug store, or discount store. Health food and natural food stores offer an even wider selection of cruelty-free products. Look on the back of products to find those "not tested on animals."

Below are few online stores that offer a wide variety of cruelty-free products.
Make your voice heard! It is important that companies who still engage in animal testing realize their outdated policies are costing them customers. Please write to these companies and tell them you will not be using their products until they stop testing on animals!
SUPPORT ETHICAL CHARITIES
If you choose to make a donation to a health charity, please be certain your money is going towards effective and humane research.
It is also important for those charities who continue to fund animal research to know there is opposition to this policy. Please write polite letters requesting they re-examine their stance on animal research.
