Good: two ticks

A charity receives two ticks only if they have confirmed that they have a policy not to carry out or fund animal research and this is a permanent policy or one for the foreseeable future.

Good: one tick

If a charity does not currently fund or carry out animal experiments, according to the response which we received from them, they are awarded one tick. It is important to note, however, that these charities will not have stated that this is a permanent policy, may have previously been involved in animal testing and may have said that they agree, in principle, with animal testing. These charities are given a tick, with caution. It is advised that supporters check the status of these charities before making a donation.
