Sadly, in laboratories across Canada, female rabbits, guinea pigs and rats are confined in barren cages and bred for the purposes of testing cosmetics and their ingredients. This senseless suffering continues despite steadfast opposition from the great majority of Canadians.
Aviva Vetter is the Campaign Manager for Humane Society International's Be Cruelty-Free Canada campaign — the largest campaign in the country working to end cosmetic animal testing. She has helped numerous companies transition to cruelty-free status while still finding time to work on HSI's other campaigns, including animal rescue, emergency sheltering, and even grooming!
The Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act (S-214), a bill to end cosmetic animal testing in Canada, passed its second reading in the Senate and is being studied in committee before making its way to the House of Commons. It's currently the only piece of legislation that addresses a very specific (and unnecessary) area of animal testing.
