End Allegedly Cruel Animal Experiments at University

Target: Professor Shearer West, President and Vice-Chancellor of Nottingham University

Goal: End all testing procedures performed on animals and seek humane alternatives.

Animal rights advocates are protesting the University of Nottingham’s allegedly cruel and abusive animal testing facilities. According to University figures, over 25,000 procedures were carried out in a single year on a vast array of animals, ranging from mice to sheep. Animal rights groups say these animals were subjected to painful and potentially lethal experimentation, much of which resulted in unnecessary distress, suffering or premature death.

Animal testing is far too common in academic settings worldwide, in spite of the existence of humane alternatives, such as synthetic or digital models for replicating organs or other body systems. In many instances, animals are injected with potentially harmful substances, given unnecessary and painful operations, or are bred with debilitating inherited diseases. Once the experimentation is complete, many of these animals may be euthanized.

Animals are living, sentient beings that deserve far better treatment. Sign this petition and demand that this university close its animal testing facilities immediately.


Dear Professor West,

The University of Nottingham is a respected research university, committed to advancing the fields of both science and medicine. That is why it is so important that your institution also commit itself to maintaining the highest ethical standards, especially when it comes to the treatment and welfare of animals in its care.

The fact that the University has subjected thousands of animals to over 25,000 potentially cruel and unnecessary testing procedures is deeply troubling. Research has shown that animal testing is largely ineffective, and there are far better alternatives available, including digital and synthetic models. Therefore, I urge you to put an end to the pain and suffering that animal testing at the University of Nottingham has caused, and to commit your institution to animal-free research.

  1. Hey there, all you heartless, soulless researchers…ever heard of brain elasticity? How about using such NEWER science to create new neural pathways in your own sorry gray matter to “upgrade” your brains’ capacity for EMPATHY?…because yours are clearly very LACKING!

  2. Derinda Nilsson says:

    Well all I know is that I don’t have the same DNA as a mouse or a rat or any other small ANIMAL. So why do testing on them. It doesn’t make any sense. Why not get some HUMAN volunteer or even prisoners that are on death row that don’t have to live for anyway. Not some sweet little animal that never did anything to deserve this cruel treatment.
