Age UK is to cease funding vivisection and joins the growing list of charities whose donated funds are not used for animal experimentation. (Ethical Consumer magazine).
Around 135 medical charities, including Marie Curie Cancer Care and Breast Cancer UK do not conduct or fund animal research, but ninety still do, despite a 2011 opinion poll conducted by Animal Aid that found that 82% of the public would not donate to charities that did.
Information about charities and their policy on funding vivisection is on the Animal Aid database at web: victimsofcharity.org
