Ärzte gegen Tierversuche - Doctors Against Animal Experiments Germany - was founded in 1979. We are a charitable organisation of several hundred doctors and scientists who work in the medical field. Our aim is the immediate abolition of all animal experiments on ethical and scientific grounds.
In order to make the cruel and unscientific nature of animal experiments public, we provide scientifically based information material on animal experiments. Our internet database detailing thousands of animal experiments which have been carried out in Germany is the only of its kind in the world. We initiate campaigns, influence legislation by political lobbying, run a school project, support Eastern European universities in replacing animal use in education and promote animal-free research by awarding prizes to name just a few of our activities on behalf of animals.
