Will Your Christmas Charity Donations Be Used To Torture Animals?
At Christmas time, many people give charity gifts to each other as presents. This is where someone donates to charity on behalf of someone else. The recipient often receives a card or certificate from the charity stating what the charity donation has enabled the charity to do.
For instance, with animal charities, it may be to sponsor an animal for a year, or to spay or neuter an animal or two.
There are many charities, however, that use charity donations to torture animals in horrifically cruel lab experiments. Of course, they never publicise that fact. Luckily, there are places where you can find out which charities do this. You can even find alternative charities to donate to, that work in the same field, but do so humanely and do not fund animal torture.
Animal experiments are an out dated and unreliable way to further human medical treatments. In fact, it is a dangerous way. Humans have died, suffered life changing problems, and suffered terrible deformities as a result of scientists relying on animal research. A cure for cancer in mice and rats was found decades ago, but human bodies react differently to treatment to animals. Humane methods have been shown to be much more accurate. Despite this, millions and millions of lab animals are abused and killed every year in medical research.
Have a look and check your Christmas present of a charity gift will not be used to fund animal torture, and see what alternative charity you could donate to in the same field instead.
