Here is a list off of the PETA website, these are a list of dog food companies that DO NOT do any animal testing for their food. PLEASE consider some of these foods. The animal testing Industry is just as cruel as the puppymill industry, both of them have to stop and it will take education and everyone's help to get them to stop. One way to help stop puppymills, is not buy from petstores, one way to help stop Animal testing is to stop buying the food that tests on those poor animals. Please read about IAMS and thier cruel testing. http://www.iamsodead.com Here is the list of companies that don't test. . .

I'ev seen that guy on Letterman! he cracks me up. I could do his job.. cept for the canned foods that is. I remember him saying to Dave, "The good food is pretty decent, the bad food is.. BAD." However, we know that the tastes of a dog and the tastes ofa human do differ.. after all, think of all the puppies that eat poop, how many people do you see racing to the toilet for a turd meal or snacking on some vomit? (apologies to those who just ate!)
mininyar that is gross !!! no i have never watched the late show. sounds pretty funny though. i have tried dog cookies, the ones that look like animal crackers, but they had a very balnd almost no taste to them. but the dumb dogs like them. i think i would draw the line at canned food myself.
minniyar, i 100% agree. sorry katz, but i really don't trust the accuracy of any PETA statement. i really have to check them out for myself. and i think too i'd not want to buy a pet food that hadn't been tested on the animal it was meant for. we DO test new drugs on humans, do i don't have a problem testing pet foods on pets.
I have no problem with animals EATING food and testing it that way, but I still believe that IAMS does cruel testing. There is no need to hurt or cut part of an animals thigh just to test a pet food. I am sorry but I am not willing to support something like that. And just so you know Minniyar, I have heard this from other places than PETA. Peta just has more info on it. Also, why don't you talk to the investigators and hear for yourself. People test drugs on people, correct? Not completely, they also test on animals. But saying that they didn't. Saying that they only tested on people. Do they keep those people in a bland environment with nothing to do, do they choose helpless people who cannot make informed decisions? (i.e. abies or mentally incompetent) NO they do not, why??? because it is wrong. Why should animals be the subject of testing? They do not ask to be. Don't turn your animal into a shelter.....if you have too, please ask if they sell to companies for animals testing, you may be surprised. MANY shelters do! My shelter does not. But I will not support any industry that supports cruel testing on animals. Food Companies or Shelters, especially the shelters who are there to HELP the animals!
