Born to die

A new BUAV investigation has uncovered the shocking killing of puppies, kittens and other baby animals BORN TO DIE in a UK laboratory. 

This is the heart breaking story of individual puppies, kittens, and other baby animals whose lives were callously cut short and their bodies butchered.

It is a dark and gruesome secret that the research industry would never want you to find out about.  

But thanks to the bravery of our investigator, the truth about what happens to puppies and kittens inside the closed and secret world of animal experimentation can finally be revealed. 

The BUAV went undercover at MSD Animal Health for 8 months in 2013.


We found:

Our Best Friends don’t belong in laboratories.  But these cats and dogs never experienced the love of a human family or the joys of playing outside. They never saw the sky, breathed fresh air or felt the grass beneath their feet. Born to die for the research industry, their lives were cruelly cut short at just a few weeks old.

Sadly it is too late for these individuals but please help the BUAV end the appalling killing of puppies, kittens and other animals born to die in UK laboratories. Take action by following the links on the right hand side beneath the video.
