Is there a non-animal research option for donation? "We do not currently make the distinction between animal research and non-animal research funds, but do offer donors the option of donating to non-research activities, for example our Adviceline, if they do not want their donation to be spent on research which may involve the use of animals. We can also arrange for the donations to be made towards specific research projects. We do this by coding the donation to specific projects as soon as the money is processed."
