Applaud Company’s Refusal to Finance Animal Cruelty

ING Paul Sableman

Target: Ralph Hamers, CEO of ING Group

Goal: Thank major financial company for removing funding from activities that hurt or kill animals.

Activities that harm or kill animals, such as cosmetic testing and animal fighting, will no longer be funded by global financial giant ING. This decision also includes testing on primates and endangered species, using endangered animals for commercial purposes, and the trade and production of fur products.

This is a huge step for ING which could lead to more financial service companies deciding to follow suit. Sign this letter to thank the company for their progressive thinking and positive changes.


Dear Mr. Hamers,

Your company, ING, has influence all over the globe. Recently, you announced that ING will no longer fund numerous activities that harm or kill animals. This includes cosmetic testing on animals, testing on primates and endangered species, using endangered animals for commercial purposes, bull fighting, and the trade of fur products.

This is great news and we hope that more companies will follow in your footsteps. Countless animals will now be spared unnecessary pain and death. Thank you for making this new policy and for being a forward thinker in the world of financial services.
