Conscious choices make a difference. Despite arguments that animal testing is a necessary part of medical research, and that finding a cure for human diseases outweighs the suffering this research causes to innocent animals, scientists are increasingly seeing that the results of animal experiments are not directly applicable to humans.
I won’t give to charities that support animal testing, and always check before making any type of donation. You may need to do a little research and possibly call the organization, but to me, it’s important enough to make that extra effort.
