What We Do
Cruelty Free Europe’s network of partner organisations acts as a force for animals in laboratories across the EU and the wider European neighbourhood.
Working with elected Members of the European Parliament, governments, regulators, officials and supporters, our experts coordinate efforts to secure change for the animals currently suffering in experiments in Europe.
We believe there is no rational moral justification for using animals in experiments. Instead, we champion progressive, humane scientific research and cruelty free living.
We use our unique blend of compassion, expertise and determination to create lasting change in how the world sees and treats animals. Educating, challenging and inspiring others across the globe to respect and protect animals, we are bringing closer the day when animal experiments are consigned to the history books.
We campaign for Europe to take the lead in the development of more humane science and progressive legislation for animals.
Our team of scientists and regulatory specialists work with EU regulators to speed up the implementation and promotion of non-animal methods to replace animal testing and deliver better, faster solutions for the important health and environmental challenges we all face.
