Emmy Dela Pena 's curator insight, February 20, 2017 2:27 PM

This article discusses the possible solutions to help end the use of testing animals for research. There are two organizations that are currently putting in the effort to stop this from happening, "HUHA" (HELPING YOU HELP ANIMALS) and "NZAVS" (NEW ZEALAND ANTI-VIVISECTION SOCIETY). They are starting a petition asking to make a law that protects those animals who are put through testing and are later disposed when they are no longer needed. The organizations explain how inhumane it is and animals shouldn't be treated as an experiment then are later disposed. The writer made sure to include real quotes from their source to ensure that the audience believes what they are reading is reliable. I think that the writer did a good job in persuading me to take action by leaving the information that is needed to help these animals at the end of the article which further explains what needs to be done. It's a good source to use in my research project because it has information that can help me write about the possible solutions to this problem.
