Join us on 18 February to stop animal experiments at the Royal Veterinary College

Posted on the 24th January 2017

The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) conducts around 9,000 experiments on animals every year.

The animals used in this research – including dogs, mice, rabbits, sheep and pigs – are forced to endure painful experiments for things such as improving human fertility, studying nausea and trying to ‘model’ human muscular dystrophy in beagle-cross dogs.

Animal Aid has also uncovered a whole host of negligence and malpractice during these experiments – examples include animals dying on the operating table, a procedure abandoned due to the size of the animal and beagle puppies who were put down after suffering severe injuries as a result of an attack by an adult dog. Read more about the RVC’s experiments.

A veterinary college should be healing animals, not harming them.

Please join us and show your opposition to these experiments:

  • Date: Saturday 18th February 2017
  • Time: 9:15am – 11:30am
  • Address: Royal Veterinary College, Hawkshead Lane, Brookmans Park, Hatfield, AL9 7TA

If you are coming along, please let us know. Thanks!
