Moo-ving people toward compassionate living

Mice and Rats

Wishful Thinking

This mouse is living free as God intended, even free to climb into a tree.

This cat and rat became buddies. They live in peace with one another, just as Isaiah prophesied in the Bible (Isaiah 11:6-9)

What can I do?

Please Help Our Efforts

How can I help stop the pain and suffering?

Go Vegan!

  • Don't eat animals or their by-products (meat, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy, cheese, milk).
  • Don't wear or use animal products (fur, fur trim, leather, skins, wool, silk).
  • Tell others why you have made this compassionate choice.

Always be peaceful and polite when expressing your feelings.

Speak out against all forms of animal exploitation and cruelty.

Refer others to our website so they can see for themselves.

Write letters to editors of newspapers, to broadcasters, and to elected officials. - Animals deserve the legal rights not to be used, exploited, and destroyed by humans.

Be a believable witness!

Give only to compassionate and cruelty-free organizations:

  • Charities that do not test on animals or use animals for research.
  • Environmental organizations that don't believe in hunting.
  • Before you give, check carefully to see where their money goes.
  • Don't be a "meanie greenie."

Buy only cruelty-free makeup, toiletries, and household products:

  • Products that contain no animal by-products or ingredients.
  • Products that are not tested on animals.
  • Educate yourself.

Always adopt companion animals.  Do not buy them from pet shops or breeders.

Always spay and neuter companion animals. Prevent over-population.

Support only cruelty-free entertainment with no animal acts, rodeos, or racing.

Speak out against blood sports (hunting, fishing, trapping, bull fighting and other animal fighting).

Always set the example for compassionate and peaceful living. Educate yourself.  Keep improving. Ask others to join you in your efforts.

(Mice and Rats - Research - 01) Mice and rats are not protected by any anti-cruelty laws, nor are any research facilities required to account for any testing procedures on them. These feeling and social animals are left to the "mercy" of the researchers. The rats in this photo are locked in stocks for hours on end while experiments are conducted upon them without anesthesia.
(Mice and Rats - Research - 02) Many times more mice and rats suffer and die in laboratories than all other animals put together. Stop the torture! Don't donate to charities that provide funds for medical research on animals.
(Mice and Rats - Research - 03) From our own experience and observation, these animals never have a day that could be described as "normal." Existing in metal cages in dark "animal rooms", they are taken out into the light only to be tormented, as this one.
(Mice and Rats - Research - 04) There seems to be no end to the tortures devised by the diabolical imaginations of humans. Since mice and rats are unregulated, there is no accountability for any sadistic act.
(Mice and Rats - Research - 05) Why should animals be used and abused for "medical research" for diseases for which they bear no responsibility?  Why torment God's other creatures in search of so-called "cures" for problems caused by "the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life" (1 John 2:16) of humans? This is particularly relevant, since nearly all chronic diseases are preventable.
(Mice and Rats - Research - 06) This rat has his or her head clamped in a vise so the vivisector can perform brain implant surgery.  From all indications, the rat is fully conscious during this procedure.
(Mice and Rats - Research - 07) This rat has a brain implant. The lead can be seen running to a connection in the rat's head.
(Mice and Rats - Research - 08) What in the world could this creature of God have done to deserve such treatment?! Causing animals to suffer is evil.
(Mice and Rats - Research - 09) This is another view of the torturous head-vise that holds a fully conscious rat in place while a vivisectionist experiments upon him or her. This is nothing more than socially accepted sadism. It's time these atrocities end. Speak out against laboratory experimentation and testing upon animals.
(Mice and Rats - Research - 10) This is a mouse showing a swollen abdomen typical of ascites. The most compelling arguments against in vivo production of monoclonal antibodies are based on the suffering associated with the induction of ascites in the animals. It is known from human clinical experience that the growth of abdominal tumors is very painful.  These painful procedures are totally unnecessary, as even better quality antibodies can be produced in tissue cultures.
(Mice and Rats - Research - 11) Procter & Gamble is engineering nanosoot particles to develop products that can penetrate skin and hair in ways that naturally occurring molecules do not. More than a thousand hamsters, mice and rats (including the ones above pictured here) were killed in tests where they were placed in sealed containers and forced to breathe in air contaminated with 'nano' particles. These experiments are done to produce "better" hair sprays, hand lotions and makeup. What price they pay for human vanity.
