What's this about?

This blog is a place where people can leave messages in memory of animals that were special to them in some way. In exchange they will be asked to make a donation to a charity called FRAME, that raises money to find ways to carry out science experiments without using animals.

Visit www.justgiving.com/Mitch-Monkey and leave a donation (minimum £5 please) and don't forget to mention who it's in memory of. Then come back here and make a comment on the latest post. When the donation is cleared by Just Giving I'll make your In Memoriam post visible.

Why I set up this blog

I learned about what happens to animals in laboratories a few years ago when I went to a conference in Rome. There were all kinds of people there who are working on finding ways not to have to use animals to test things on.  One of the best is FRAME. They have a laboratory where scientists try to find ways to do experiments without using animals. They helped to develop some of the new ways to test cosmetics that have meant the law can be changed so that no make-up or perfume sold in Europe can be tested on animals any more.

But there is still a long way to go. Please help me to help FRAME find more alternatives so that fewer animals are used in labs in the future.
