Forever Against Animal Testing!


They did it! With your help, The Body Shop has collected 8 million signatures to support the ban of animal testing in cosmetics! Going out with a bang, they delivered the petition in person to the United Nations with the help of some of our favorite influencers. In a parade that ran from Rockefeller Center to the United Nations building in New York City, The Body Shop, Cruelty Free International and a gaggle of supporters celebrated the milestone in the fight against animal testing. Scroll through to see some of our favorite photos from the day’s festivities!

Piglet’s latest adventure was a trip to NYC to participate in a pedicab parade to raise awareness for the millions of animals still suffering in cosmetic laboratories. @thebodyshop and @crueltyfreeintl are taking 8 million signatures to the UN to call for an end to cosmetic animal testing worldwide! Animals are still suffering and being killed for beauty. This has to stop! I’m proud to join the 8 million people who are #ForeverAgainstAnimalTesting. We will support this movement until every animal is safe from cruelty. Follow the link in Piglet’s bio and call for an end to cosmetic animal testing worldwide. I think the petition is closed but the campaign to raise awareness is going strong. . As you can see from the pictures, Piglet had a great time participating in the pedicab parade from The Body Shop in Rockefeller Center to the UN. We met lots of new friends who were all there to support this very important cause. . . #pinkpigletpuppy #foreveragainstanimaltesting #crueltyfreeintl #sdgs #globalgoals #animaladvocate #animalwelfare @unitednations #animalrights #bekindtoanimals #worldanimalday #specialdog #cutedog #happytohelp #beapartofthesolution #thedogagency @thedogagency #animalrights #endsuffering @petinsider

We were on Good Morning America Facebook Live today for World Animal Day!! (If you want to see the segment the link is in our bio – we come on around the 1:50 min mark) The Body Shop invited us to NYC to be part of their awesome “Forever Against Animal Testing” campaign and their interview with @ginger_zee ! The GMA interview was followed by a pedicab parade to celebrate that over 8M signatures have been collected from all over the world in support of banning animal testing for beauty products! An awesome day and a great cause 🐶❤️ #ad #foreveragainstanimaltesting #FAAT #gma#goodmorningamerica #thebodyshop #thedogagency #barnabasandmadelinetheneos #stopanimaltesting #endanimaltesting @thebodyshop @goodmorningamerica @thedogagency #worldanimalday @scottbeaudoin4770 @lesleyhauler @kateelevi @jessiemacb
