Researchers have proposed compensation for lab animals in recognition of their sacrifice. Despite advancements in animal-free alternatives for biomedical research, animals continue to play a crucial role in the development of lifesaving medicines for humans. For that, it's thought, we should owe them more than respectful treatment in the lab.

Peaceable Primate Sanctuary and Chimp Haven provide retirement care for former lab animals that would otherwise be euthanised. Second Chance Heroes and Kindness Ranch facilitate the adoption of former research animals as pets.

If you want to show tangible gratitude to lab animals, donate to one of the organisations linked above. If you can, adopt a former lab dog, cat or rat. And, of course, always check your products are cruelty free.

🙊 What can you do at work? Find out if your company (or university) does animal testing. If it does, urge leadership to use a portion of revenues or research grants to compensate lab animals through retirement or adoption programmes. Even better, ask them to join the SPARK Pledge and replace the use of animal experimentation in toxicity and safety testing with more modern, effective solutions.
