Many of us are passionate about supporting charities that help people affected by cancer, Alzheimer's and other diseases or illnesses.

However, as a supporter of NZAVS and animals, you may want to ensure your donations to these health charities do not support animal experimentation!

Health charities in NZ do essential work in different areas, including:

  • Patient and family support.
  • Treatment and prevention services.
  • Funding medical research -  this could involve animal testing.

To be clear:

  • We are not discouraging you from donating to health charities – they do very important work for people in need.
  • Not all health charities fund and/or conduct research involving animal experimentation.

NZAVS Verified Cruelty-Free Charites:

We don’t have a list of NZ health charities that don’t fund or conduct animal experimentation yet – but we’re working on it!

While we develop this list of NZAVS Verified Cruelty-Free Charities, you can still take action for animals…

Make Your Donations Count!

When you donate to health charities, make your position about animal testing clear by sending them a quick email.

We’ve made it easy for you to advocate for animals used for science when making a donation to a health charity - simply use one of our handy templates below.

By doing so, you can:

  1. Use your supporter power to encourage health charities to invest in superior animal-free research methods.
  2. Help us build a list of cruelty-free health charities to make donating easier for others in the future!
