Citizens for Alternatives to Animal Research and Experimentation (CAARE) is a national non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to promoting a fundamental shift in the way the U.S. conducts biomedical research, one that involves far fewer animals and far less reliance on the animal model.
We encourage a shift to modern scientific technologies that do not use animals. Technological advances have ushered in a new era in science, one which has only begun to scratch the surface of what can be accomplished. Its full potential can never be realized as long as there is a continuing dependence on animal models.
Multiple surveys have shown that public support for animal research declines significantly when the public understands that the research is not necessary, and also when a high degree of animal suffering is demonstrated.
Utilizing existing and emerging information on the growing availability and success of non-animal research technologies, along with the latest information on consciousness and sentience in animals, CAARE disseminates this information to provide the basis for questioning the use of millions of animals in research. CAARE proposes that non-animal methods be used in every possible instance.
