Citizens for Alternatives to Animal Research and Experimentation (CAARE) educates the public, media, legislators and scientists about strategies to reduce and replace animal research with new and emerging scientific modalities not requiring the use of animals.

We do this by demonstrating – through our website, electronic communications, and upcoming publications and scientific reports – how the abundance of new technologies can successfully replace animal research. 

CAARE works to shift the current paradigm of massive, repetitive, and unnecessary animal testing by supporting federal legislation (such as The Humane Cosmetics Act) to end the use of animals in product testing, and to end requirements for default animal testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

CAARE also promotes policies and legislation that reduce animal suffering and the numbers of animals used in federally funded research, as mandated by the NIH Revitalization Act of 1993.
