In this informative episode, Kathy is joined by Monica Engebretson, the North American Campaign Manager for Cruelty Free International.

  • What “cruelty free” really means and how you can identify products that haven’t been tested on animals by looking for the Leaping Bunny logo
  • The history of animal testing and why it is not the most accurate way to predict human reactions to chemicals
  • Exciting new legislation, both in New York State and at the federal level, that would ban animal testing and spare millions of animals from needless suffering
  • New humane, non-animal based research that will help ensure more accurate studies in laboratories through the HEARTS Act
  • The CARE Act, which will ensure that dogs, cats, and rabbits are placed in loving homes rather than being killed after they are considered “no longer useful” in research
