Paul McCartney Is 'Looking for Changes' to Come for Animals Suffering in Labs

“We’ll all be looking for changes — changes in the way we treat our fellow creatures.”

In this animated music video to ‘Looking For Changes,” Beatles icon and long-time animal rights activist Paul McCartney is calling on YOU to speak up against cruel tests on animals.

Cats, rabbits, monkeys, and other animals are suffering for experiments RIGHT NOW.

Join Paul and tell congress to redirect funding to non-animal methods: https://www.peta.org/features/paul-mc...

At the Biomedical Primate Research Centre in the Netherlands, approximately 1,500 monkeys are used for breeding or experimentation at any one time. They're often shaved, crudely tattooed, placed in restraint cages, and infected with debilitating diseases.

Sometimes, after being sedated, these intelligent animals remain conscious during terrifying procedures, such as those in which tuberculosis bacteria are injected directly into their eyelids. Unable to escape, they're helpless to defend themselves.

Experiments on monkeys must stop now. The results of such studies aren't even relevant to humans.

Please urge the Dutch government to end the use of primates in experiments and to make the transition to humane science

A shocking undercover investigation has exposed appalling animal cruelty in a medical research facility in Germany. The documented animal abuse occurring at the laboratory is something out of a horror movie, yet it is the tragic reality for the millions of animal victims of toxicity testing. Please urge European decision-makers to take urgent action to review animal testing laws in the European Union.

An undercover investigation conducted by Cruelty Free International and SOKO Tierschutz at the Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology (LPT) in Mienenbuttel, Lower Saxony, Germany has sparked global outrage. While working at the lab, an undercover investigator reported the routine torture of beagles, monkeys, and cats as part of hellish toxicity tests.

Watch the full investigation video footage here.

This horrifying undercover footage depicts beagles left bleeding in barren cages, sick from ingesting undisclosed substances from tubes that had been shoved down their throats. As facility staff conducted their experiments on them, the dogs appear desperate for human contact and heartbreakingly wag their tails at the people responsible for their misery.

The video also shows monkeys who are restrained with barbaric devices around their necks and their arms taped onto chairs to keep them from moving, screaming out in pain and terror. Some are shackled in tiny cages and rock back and forth and bounce around as they slowly go mad. Their dead bodies are dropped into buckets to discard.

And yet the cruelty depicted in this footage is not the result of a few sadistic scientists; in toxicity tests like these, the suffering occurs by design. The undercover investigator who filmed the disturbing footage observed that the "animals are injected with or made to eat or inhale increasing amounts of a substance to measure the toxic effects which can be severe and include vomiting, internal bleeding, respiratory distress, fever, weight loss, lethargy, skin problems, organ failure and even death. No anesthetics or pain relief are provided."

This is the incomprehensibly cruel reality for millions of animals used for medical research.

Unlawful dog and monkey suffering uncovered at Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology (LPT)


Our investigation with SOKO Tierschutz at the Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology (LPT) in Germany has shed light on the horrors animals face behind closed laboratory doors.

Graphic footage of dogs left bleeding and dying, and monkeys being routinely abused, has lifted the lid of secrecy on regulatory safety testing.

We believe this abuse and the unimaginable suffering of cats, dogs and monkeys is unlawful. Yet this is the reality of laboratory life for animals. Will you stand with us and the millions of animals who suffer in laboratories?

We are extremely grateful for everyone who has donated so generously this week to our BUILD IT! Campaign. If you haven't made a gift yet, will you help us reach our goal today in order to move chimpanzees out of labs and into sanctuaries?

More than 150 chimpanzees are still at the New Iberia Research Center, waiting to be transferred. Before they can be brought to Project Chimps, more new habitats must be built.


Campaign helps sanctuaries with their URGENT need to expand, ensuring that ALL retired chimpanzees have a home.

Project Chimps has a strategic plan to create a wonderful physical environment and social structure that will enable former research chimpanzees to choose where, how, and with whom to spend their time, while promoting the highest quality of life.

Their plan includes a 25-acre network of interconnected outdoor habitats and structures, providing chimps with dynamic opportunities to travel and explore, as their cousins do in the wild. But funding is needed to start construction.

Please, don’t let the chimps down during our match challenge!

Chimpanzees currently in laboratories should be released to sanctuaries.

Stop Animal Testing

Dogs, cats, monkeys, horses, mice, rats, and many other animals are being cut open, burned, poisoned, and killed in cruel and archaic experiments. But today, you can do twice as much to help end their suffering. Please donate to PETA's "Stop Animal Testing" challenge today – your gift will be matched, pound for pound, up to our £250,000 goal!
