Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

I've heard Best Friends is amazing.  My friend volunteered there.  I am definitely re-evaluting Peta. They sound completely scary.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

There are certain parts of the country that have no kill shelters that actually have excess space and have to import animals from Puerto Rico to keep potential adopters coming in the doors. 

 

Ironic that this is brought up, because after I finish grad school, I plan on creating a non-profit that will transport animals from over-crowded shelters across the U.S. to the no-kill shelters that need to import animals from other areas. c:

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Good luck with your Non-profit! I have been involved in many such transport journeys- My friend worked at a no-kill shelter in New York State and we would drive pups up from high-kill shelters in North Carolina! She's with the HSUS now so my transporting is currently on hold, but it was amazing.  We saved over 40 dogs from death row (Including my girl Glory, my avatar, and her ELEVEN puppies Smiley Happy

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

AWE! What a sweetheart! She actually looks a lot like my dog, Toby, that I adopted and brought up from a high-kill shelter in Alabama. Here's a picture!

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

OMG super cute! Good luck with your non-profit! LOVE to ALL the animal lovers and rescuers! <3

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Super cute!

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Awww!  Beautiful dog!

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Your dog is adorable!  So nice that you saved her, I am thinking of rescuing a dog soon

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Sorry forgot to say.  

 

                 THANK YOU fellow vegan <3  

 

and thank you for adopting and fostering.   There's a special place in Heaven for you.  Smiley Happy

 

Love Leaping Bunny and My Beauty Bunny

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

I thought PETA was people eating tasty animals...sorry...I hope all of you animal rights folks don't feed your pet anything but all natural plant based cat / dog food. Now, while I am not into cruelty or animal testing the fact of the matter is your beloved pet food is often made from other pets..ie PURINA uses euthanized animals to make it's pet food. The whole thing collar, bag and all go into the mix. Horse meat. Fish parts...where does it end. I personally feed my cat what we eat since we eat no grain. She loves it and I don't have to worry about leftovers. So before you all go shouting at companies for making a profit without that little leaping bunny, you should know where your food comes from, your pets food comes from long before you care what it is tested on. Plus there are beetles ground up in your red lipstick , fish scales in that lovely iridescent eyeshadow and luminizers. People use horse hair for brushes, beaver fur and whatever else kind of hair your coveted makeup brushes are made from. So While it is nice to know and support those companies that do NOT test on animals, you should not bash them because someone else tests their products on animals. Rant over and I am going to eat my big juicy grass fed/finished hamburger! 

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

The tone of this reply really necessary.  Why would you assume that people who are vegans or into animal rights DON'T know about the  things you list here? I know that it is great fun to try and point out how hypocritical non-vegans/vegetarians are.  I apologize on behalf of any of my fellow non-meat eaters to you if you have ever been harassed by someone for your eating choices.  But they are YOUR choices, and we are allowed to make ours.  None of us care what you eat or choose to buy.  Why do you care so much about ours?  Why does it bother you that people are asking for details about how their products are made, and where they come from?

 

I don't understand the aversion to choice and consumer information? I very strongly believe that we vote with our dollars.  By choosing to spend money on cruelty free cosmetics, we send a message that we do not find unnecessary laboratory tests acceptable.  As more people do this, more options without animal testing will become available.  It is a very simple part of how our capitalistic society works.   No one is bashing anyone by not choosing to buy a product.  The whole idea is that we have the choice to buy whatever products we want.

 

I am not an all-or-nothing type of person.  I believe that even small changes, small commitments can make a big difference.  The idea of meatless mondays, for example.  I would never advocate a vegan or vegetarian diet for everyone, because everyone is different.  I don't see anything hypocritical about making informed decisions and choosing what you eat, don't eat, buy, don't buy... even if some products come from animals and some don't.  The world is not so black and white.

So please, don't assume, and don't lash out at people who are just trying to find more information. 

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Feeding a dog a completely vegetarian diet is possible, but a cat is an obligate carnivore. They need to have certain nutrients that only come from meat proteins. Like taurine, an amino acid essential for eye and heart function is not optional. If you feed your cat a vegetarian diet that isn't supplemented with taurine, you are going to hurt or kill it. This is one of the reasons why being fully informed is important, you can't have too much information to make a good decision but there is definitely such a thing as not enough. 

 

 

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

I do agree with you on this, dogs can be vegetarian but it can kill cats to be on a vegetarian diet.  

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

So, basically it's ok to use them in cosmetics, but not to test? I am not saying spraying stuff up them like above is right. It's not. They just don't know what else to test on. I think personally they should stick to vermin cuz they are nasty anyways (IMO) I have no problem with rats but I don't see how if ok on an animal makes it ok for us. They know by now what causes people to break out and what chemicals not to use on humans that are toxic, so there is no longer a need. 30-40 years ago maybe, but now it is just not necessary with all of the technology they have. I just hope you care about looking what is in your food supply and your pets. It is quite disturbing. 

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

I absolutely agree with you on this one about the food chain.  Monsanto is corrupting our food with GMOs, Factory Farming meats are anything but natural.  You want to; eat grass fed, pasture raised and humanly slaughtered, beef,.. Dig in.   I have no problem with that.   

 

I have the problem when it comes to animal testing, animals in our products such as the cosmetic brushes you mentioned (which are made from squirrel hair, where in a magical land squirrels sit in little barber chairs for a hair cut, not the reality of the fur/skin ripped from their bodies.) leather shoes, purses.  Peeps want that Birkin for the logo >> Jane has it, I gotta have it, mentality.

 

Great documentary "Forks over Knives".

and very sad documentaries on China's fur trade.

 

And 'vermin' to you, is GOD's creature.

 

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Agreed 100%.  I am a dog rescuer and very concerned with animal welfare, and PETA makes me sick to my stomach.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Hi, thank you for telling us this.  I had heard this before, but could you please message me info with links. I would like to be more informed and aware of Peta's real practices.  Thank you!

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Thank you!! I am a vege/pescatarian/ that has been involved in animal rescue for years and I hate PETA as well. They also believe in killing feral cats. You know, we can't have people testing on companion animals or wild cats, but killing them is fine. *SIGH* I shudder to think of the millions they sink into their crazy agenda. Not many PETA supporters heard about this, but they also sent a gift basket of vegan cookies to a animal control who announced they would change their No Kill policy and start killing for space. Sickening...

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Just looking over the list,... 

1.  Perricone is missing.

2.  Chanel does animal Testing.

 

I'd like to know where you compiled your information from, since some are noted as PETA and others not,...  It is inconsistent.

 

And to be fair, it is very hard to keep up with who's who anymore, it changes on a daily basis.   Having said that, it is irresponsible to again post information that is incomplete, misleading and inaccurate.   

 

But then again, Sephora says they do not do animal testing on their house products (Sephora, KVD, etc) however there are 147 stores in China with the second largest Sephora store in Shanghai, the largest being in Barcelona.  And to add insult to injury,... The Shanghai store is the Sephora Flagship store.  *rethinking why I am spending $$ at Sephora*

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Thank you for providing factual information that proves Sephora does in fact sell in China and test on animals!

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Plantgarden makes some excellent points.

 

Another couple that just caught my eye:

 

  • Justin Bieber is manufactured by Elizabeth Arden and they do animal testing.
  • Urban Decay is a subsidiary of a company that does conduct animal testing.

 

I guess the message is, folks, really educate yourselves and don't relay on third party information (sorry, Sephora) as it can often be inaccurate, or take the word of another company without performing some sort of due diligence.
