Welcome Green Monsters! We're your online guide to making conscious choices that help people, animals and the planet.


As animal lovers, it breaks our hearts to hear stories about what dogs, cats, chimps, rabbits, mice, and countless others endure in laboratory testing. Animals are used for everything from cosmetic to biomedical testing, but while the purpose of their captivity may differ, they all experience the same fear and pain. Knowing that many of these cruel tests are not only incredibly ineffective but also unnecessary, it seems absurd that we continue to subject living beings to life in a lab.

Luckily, there are many individuals and organizations working to put an end to testing and give animals a second chance at life. This video shows just a few of the animals who have been rescued from labs, and their reactions to their new-found freedom. Seeing these sweeties experience things like grass and sunshine for the very first time in their lives is sure to bring a smile to your face.

Share this video and encourage others to learn more about what they can do to end animal testing. We can all make more happy endings like these possible by speaking up for animals and demanding change!
