Summary

Help CAARE end experiments that have inflicted terrible suffering on hundreds of cats and kittens since 1985. The cats are used in lengthy procedures at the NY College of Optometry. Experimenters claim they want to create a map of cat's visual cortex. This has little to no relevance for human health or visual disorders. Citizens for Alternatives to Animal Research & Experiments (CAARE) promotes research without animals and ending the use of animals in painful and indefensible experiments.

Challenge

These experiments are replaceable with non-invasive human brain imaging techniques which have greatly expanded over the past few decades. While the public is constantly told that animal experiments are essential, the fact is that many experiments take place using outdated animal research instead of modern methods. No laws require scientists to use alternatives if they exist. Only public awareness can stop terrible experiments like the ones at the NY College of Optometry.

Solution

Informing the public about how animals can be replaced in research chips away at the myth that we must harm and kill animals for medical advancements.

Long-Term Impact

Animal research takes place in secrecy. Each time we can shed light on animal experiments we take important steps to replacing it with modern, more humane methods.
