Companies that test on animals, laboratories, contract laboratories, breeding, biological supply (dissection) and related articles. Because a company is not listed here, does not mean it does not do animal testing.

For links to copies of a facility's U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)-Animal Plant Health Inspection (APHIS) reports, other information and links, see also Stop Animal Experimentation NOW!: Facility Reports and Information. This site contains listings for all 50 states, links to biomedical research facilities in that state and PDF copies of government documents where facilities must report their animal usage.

As of May 26, 2009, the USDA began posting all inspection reports for animal breeders, dealers, exhibitors, handlers, research facilities and animal carriers by state. See also USDA Animal Welfare Inspection Reports.

At no time have all laboratories in the U.S. reported their experimental totals. The total of non-reporting facilities has varied from 22 to 128 (out of approximately 1100). This does not include those animals not covered under the Animal Welfare Act (AWA), which are not even counted. Over 90% of the animals used in experimentation are excluded from the AWA, the only federal law which over sees animal testing. Rats, mice, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish are expressly eliminated from all safeguards. Species not covered under the AWA do not even have to be reported. See also The Animal Care Program and the USDA's Authority Under the AWA: Q & A. Additionally, these statistics do not cover animals which are being held in laboratories for conditioning or breeding. For example, while the USDA reports over 57,000 primates in labs, the actual total is closer to 120,000. SAEN, 2005

Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act

The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act does not specifically require the use of animals in testing cosmetics for safety, nor subject cosmetics to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) premarket approval. See also Cosmetics Q&A: Animal Testing. For current lists of U.S., Canadian and international companies which do not test on animals, visit the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics.
