Italy/Monza: New shelter for small rescued lab animals
15/11/2010

Hundreds of rescued rabbits, rats and guinea pigs are given shelter in the "La collina dei conigli" (The rabbits' hill) in Monza. They are cared for by volunteers and veterinarians and, when they are healthy enough and have recovered from psychological problems, become available for adoption.

In Italy the new European Directive on vivisection voted in September is strongly criticized. Among other problems, it permits to experiment on stray dogs and cats and to systematically re-use animals even when they already suffered prolonged pain and distress before.
