Let Parliament Know Why You Want Animals Out of the Labs!

Let Parliament Know Why You Want Animals Out of the Labs!

We need you to help us send a message to Parliament! Print out a paw print, say why you want animals 'Out of the Labs!', decorate it however you like and Freepost it to us.

We need your help to send a message to Parliament!

On the 7th of April NZAVS will be holding an event in Civic Square in Wellington CBD as part of our Out of the Labs Campaign! We will be using messages from all around New Zealand to illustrate why we want ex-lab animals to be rehabilitated and rehomed.

Our paw print messages will ensure that our Out of the Labs petition will have the best chance possible of amending New Zealand law to include a mandatory retirement policy for animals used in research, testing and teaching — meaning that research facilities will be legally required to attempt to rehome ex-lab and breeding animals through registered rescue organisations instead of euthanising them.

No matter where you live you can be involved! Simply print off one of our paw print templates, say why you want animals to live Out of the Labs! and Freepost it to the NZAVS office in Christchurch.

You can find the paw print template here

Our postal address is Freepost 243173, NZ Anti-Vivisection Society Inc, PO Box 9387, Tower Junction, Christchurch 8149.

An example of a filled-in paw print that we will send to Parliament.


If you live in Wellington, then we would love to see you at the event!

When: Friday, April 7th, 12.30pm (this is when we will be taking the big group photo, come along from 10 am onwards if you want to fill out a paw print message on the day)
Where: Civic Square, Wellington
