Target: Dr. Herman Koeter, Chairman of Netherlands National Committee for the Protection of Animals Used for Scientific Purposes

Goal: Thank the Netherlands for making the groundbreaking decision to phase out all animal testing by 2025.

The Netherlands is already phasing out testing and experimentation on non-human primates, and now the country has taken it a step further. It plans on ending all animal experimentation by 2025. The Netherlands is the first country to make this decision and could inspire others to follow in its footsteps.

There are many alternative methods and tools in the science community that would allow researchers to test without harming animals. It is great to see that scientists are starting to take advantage of these tools and are taking the time to protect these innocent animals. Now, countless animals in the future will be spared the pain and misery of being tested on, drugged, cut open, burned, poisoned or even electrocuted.

Sign this petition and thank the Netherlands for its commitment to helping animals and making a world a kinder place.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Koeter,

Recently, the Netherlands made the groundbreaking decision to phase out all animal testing by 2025. This is great news for countless animals who will be spared from unnecessary pain, torture and death.

The Netherlands has already started phasing out experimentation on non-human primates and this new goal of phasing out all animal experimentation is even more inspiring. Thanks to today’s technology, there are many new tools and methods that can be used to replace animals in research. I am ecstatic to see scientists taking advantage of these amazing new alternatives.

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication in helping make the world a kinder place for all beings. I can only hope other countries are inspired by your actions and follow in your footsteps.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    2025 is a long time for animals still being experimented on…ban these ongoing long term studies that require completion. Abandon them or continue the studies using modern methods!

    To celebrate this is profane! Nine more years of cruel animal experiments! Nine years is more than the natural lifespan of many animals. Don’t settle for this people!
