  1. Dear Mark Eden,
    Well done on your good efforts. I am a veterinary surgeon based in Europe and would like to help your campaign. It would be helpful if you could send me a link to the NZ regulatory authorities website, so that I can study their legal requirements for testing medical products. You should include ALL animals in your petition, and not just dogs and cats. I look forward to hearing from you. Andre

  2. You can stop this!! keep it up !! love your work

  3. i would love to help as much as i can so plz if u can send me an email so i can help i wanna help any amianl out there witch is getting hurt or expermented on so plz email me bak


  4. so when are the next protests?????? DONT GIVE UP

  5. cant you at least update this site

  6. I really love what your doing. I have a beagle myself and I couldn’t ever imagine hurting him. I’ve posted your blog on myspace as well as the petition and am getting as many people to sign as possible. I wish I lived in NZ because I would defiantly love to come and protest with you. Keep up the good work.

    • If we don’t live in New Zealand how can we help? P.S I just love what you are doing because I that every animal no matter how big or small they are they sould have a better life than testing. I feel for all of you!!

      • Hi Grace I think you are rigth but did you mean to say “because I know thst every animal no matter how big or small they are they sould have a better life than testing”?

  7. Keep up the great work, wish I could be apart of this if I lived in NZ. I have a beagle and he is the most adorable loving dog you could ever imagine. These people ought to be punished for their disgusting behaviour. Keep up the great work and please save the beagles.

  8. Of all the forms of cruelty in the world calculated organised abuse like this sickens me to the core, Animal testing breaks my heart and reduces me to tears, it is so important for people to know that we need to at least be responsible for buying cruelty free products, in this day and age it is not hard, with a little bit of research and effort, there are comprehensive lists of approved products on the internet. People have to start caring learn about Animal testing tell anyone who will listen and mostly those who won’t MAKE THEM! Also a Beagle owner!

  9. Those of us outside of New Zealand want to help too! Please, please continue to get the word out, and let’s make it global!

  10. What the hell is going on with this site? It is lying dorment, whilst SAFE has dropped it’s campaign altogether. What is happening?
