Diversity & Ethics

Modern tests for mosquito sprays use an artificial hydrogel skin. The effectiveness of new medication, meanwhile, can be analysed without harming animals.

But animal testing hasn’t gone away. Enter a US-based Non-Profit-Organisation which has acquired an entire testing facility in Oklahoma, sparing 200 cats and dogs from further experimentation.

The labs on the 120,000 square metre property were formerly responsible for conducting 33% of all tests on flea and tick products.

As well as its existing four-legged residents, the facility will provide other rescued animals a new home with access to medical care. For there’s enough space to roam for additional livestock, chickens or rabbits.

Elsewhere exotic animals are being spared an afterlife in the luxury goods industry.
