The Humane Society

The Humane Society of the United States does not categorically oppose all uses of animals in current research as we work with others toward the day when animals will no longer be necessary as laboratory subjects. But we are dedicated to the alleviation of suffering, for animals and humans alike. We believe that our mission is shared by many in the research community, and we seek to enlist their support for this ambitious and important campaign. This campaign to eliminate animal pain and distress in the laboratory will improve our understanding and recognition of animal suffering in general, thereby strengthening our on-going efforts to eliminate the suffering of all animals.
