Help Close Huntingdon Life Sciences

Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) is the largest contract testing laboratory in Europe. They have about 70,000 animals on site, including rabbits, cats, hamsters, dogs, guinea-pigs, birds and monkeys. These animals are destined to suffer and die in cruel, useless experiments.

HLS will test anything for anybody. They carry out experiments which involve poisoning animals with household products, pesticides, drugs, herbicides, food colourings and additives, sweeteners and genetically modified organisms. Every three minutes an animal dies inside Huntingdon totaling 500 innocent lives every single day.

Huntingdon Life Sciences is the most exposed laboratory in the world. In recent years they have been infiltrated and exposed at least seven separate times for disgusting animal cruelty and rule breaking. Each time horrific evidence of animal abuse and staff incompetence has been uncovered, including workers punching beagle puppies in the face.


The SHAC campaign (Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty) is all about action. Action is everything. Words and tears mean nothing to the animals trapped in their cages inside HLS waiting to die. They deserve nothing less than our utmost commitment to take action every day to close down the lab that holds them captive and slowly kills them.

Taking action is coming on demonstrations, writing letters, making phone calls, sending emails or faxes, telling other people about the campaign, distributing leaflets, fundraising, putting up posters and stickers. Action is whatever you can do to close down the hell-hole that is Huntingdon Life Sciences. We all have our part to play and we can all take effective action to close HLS down.


The campaign to close Huntingdon Life Sciences involves thousands of caring people all across the world. Like you they are disgusted by HLS and their evil activities and are prepared to take action to close them down. All of us fighting for the animals are a powerful force, so get involved, get active and do your bit to close down HLS. Please read the information below and follow the links below to help you become active for the animals. If you are unsure or don't understand anything on this website or to do with the campaign then you can always ring or email us at any time as we are here seven days a week.


Phone call protesting is a very effective campaigning tactic. All you have to do is make a quick phone call to the companies supporting HLS and ask them to justify their involvement in animal cruelty and scientific fraud. You have every right to call Huntingdon and their customers and suppliers and question them about their obscene practices.

If you are at all concerned about companies like HLS being able to find out who you are, then it is better to make calls from a public phone box using the preset 141 before every number you call to protect your privacy. This does not mean we are encouraging you to make a different sort of phone call than you would from home, but we know some people wish to remain anonymous for instance because of their job.

Never underestimate how important these calls are. Many companies that have dealt with Huntingdon have ditched them due to the calls they have received from members of the public voicing their concerns and talking to their staff. Every single call counts.

For a list of important phone numbers and email addresses then please visit SHAC"s customers, suppliers and financial supporters sub-sites.

Emails are also an important way you can take action for the animals. You can subscribe to the email action alert list on the website. It is free to join and keeps you up to date with the best phone numbers and email addresses to use. If you wish to preserve your privacy use a local library or Internet cafe.
