What can one do about this? A lot! You can write letters to themand let them know that you may consider making a donation if they would stopkilling and inflicting torture on animals. Next time you receive a solicitation for adonation, make use of their own envelope provided for a reply, and let them know ofyour strong disapproval. If you don't feel like writing a letter "perse", a couple of sentences will suffice such as "I do not contributeto charities that practice testing on animals because I know that thereare procedures available for performing tests without live beings asvictims.

They are regarded as the greatest perpetrators of unscrupulous and inexcusable cruelty to innocent animals. Their experiments are mostlyconducted on Beagle pups, cats and monkeys, as well as on rabbits, rodents andfarm animals. Death, unfortunately, is not the worst thing done to them:in their facilities, a large number of animals are indeed killed on a dailybasis (reportedly around 500), but only after having been subjected to horrific, painful and diabolic experimentsthat could last as long as several days, weeks or even months.
