A will to help animals in need
SEPTEMBER 11 to 17 is Remember A Charity Week, which calls on people to have theirr say on the world you want to pass on when making a will.
Animal Aid echoes this sentiment and asks people who have left a legacy to charity to ensure that the recipient is not an organization that funds or supports research on animals. Animal Aid is saying ‘don’t leave a legacy of suffering’.
As well as being cruel, there is growing evidence that the results of animal-based research cannot be reliably applied to human patients.
Yet some charities, such as Cancer Research UK and British Heart Foundation, still support the barbaric practice of animal research and receive millions of pounds in legacies. This is despite 76% of people, polled by YouGov in 2015, saying they would be unlikely to knowingly leave money in their will to a charity that funds animal experiments.
