Today is International Animal Rights Day. Today we’d like to tip our hats to our European neighbors and applaud the efforts they are making to help improve the lives of animals.
International Animal Rights Day – “The annual International Animal Rights Day (IARD) – 10th December – aims to remember the animal victims of human tyranny and call for the recognition of our Universal Declaration of Animal Rights (UDAR).” See Uncaged Campaigns for more info.
Make Animal Testing History – Virtual March – “The European law that regulates animal experiments, Directive 86/609/EEC, is being updated. Revision of the law offers a vital chance for real and lasting change for animals who currently receive inadequate protection. Most importantly, a targeted strategy to replace animal experiments with more advanced non-animal methods must be the ultimate goal.” – Join the march and catch a glimpse of a virtual Ricky Gervais
