Applaud Netherlands for Ending Animal Experimentation by 2025

Target: Dr. Herman Koeter, Chairman of Netherlands National Committee for the Protection of Animals Used for Scientific Purposes

Goal: Thank the Netherlands for making the groundbreaking decision to phase out all animal testing by 2025.

The Netherlands is already phasing out testing and experimentation on non-human primates, and now the country has taken it a step further. It plans on ending all animal experimentation by 2025. The Netherlands is the first country to make this decision and could inspire others to follow in its footsteps.

There are many alternative methods and tools in the science community that would allow researchers to test without harming animals. It is great to see that scientists are starting to take advantage of these tools and are taking the time to protect these innocent animals. Now, countless animals in the future will be spared the pain and misery of being tested on, drugged, cut open, burned, poisoned or even electrocuted.

Sign this petition and thank the Netherlands for its commitment to helping animals and making a world a kinder place.


Dear Dr. Koeter,

Recently, the Netherlands made the groundbreaking decision to phase out all animal testing by 2025. This is great news for countless animals who will be spared from unnecessary pain, torture and death.

The Netherlands has already started phasing out experimentation on non-human primates and this new goal of phasing out all animal experimentation is even more inspiring. Thanks to today’s technology, there are many new tools and methods that can be used to replace animals in research. I am ecstatic to see scientists taking advantage of these amazing new alternatives.

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication in helping make the world a kinder place for all beings. I can only hope other countries are inspired by your actions and follow in your footsteps.

  1. WHY does it take nearly 10 years to do this? Its good they’re doing it, but c’mon, nearly 10 years to make it occur?

  2. Exactly! It’s like that meaningless pledge many supermarkets have taken to phase out cage eggs by 2025!Is that some magic date or something or is it merely far enough away in the future for everyone to forget the promise was ever made? I don’t intend thanking them. I hope every researcher’s hands between now and then rot off.

    …and how many more animals will suffer and die while the heroic Netherlands take another NINE+ YEARS to stop torturing them???? I’m not applauding these sadists…
