Interviewing about alternatives

We are a very small operation, and I'm afraid we don't have nearly enough time or staff to accomplish all the things we would like to—including giving individual responses to all the letters or interview requests we get. But we can point you to some places where you should be able to find the information you need. 

If you haven't already done so, please visit the Altweb Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section.  It includes examples of alternative methods, discussions of the pros and cons of animal testing, and lots more.

Also, please check out the video about CAAT and alternatives: "CAAT: 25 Years of Humane Science."

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) web site has a section on animal research issues. The Center for Laboratory Animal Welfare also offers a lot of good information on animal testing. An article titled "The Three R's: The Way Forward" can be found here.  For a pro-research viewpoint, try Kids4Research.

I hope this information is helpful. Good luck.
