Reviews for National Animal Interest Alliance

This is an organization that is constantly working to strengthen the role of dogs in our society. Fighting for reasonable animal legislation and against unreasonable and dangerous legislation. Protecting and promoting responsible breeding of all animals. Dispensing information and educating anyone willing to listen. I am a former dog breeder and showed them for many years. I own and run a boarding kennel and own goats and a donkey. I am always looking for information from NAIA and am never disappointed.

There are people out there whose goal is to have no more purposeful dog breeding, with the ultimate goal of no dog ownership by humans. Thank goodness NAIA exists to help advocate for animal lovers who disagree! Purebred dogs are wonderful beings, just like mixed breed dogs, and there should be no shame in striving to create purebred dogs or in owning purebred or mixed breed dogs. NAIA works to protect the interests of many others who work with animals, be they elephants or horses or cattle. NAIA understands the bond between humans and animals and the intensity of this connection between the animals and those who devote themselves to animals. NAIA is advocating for the love of and concern for animals.

The general public does not understand (or maybe care) that there are several organizations in the Country and more in States that have immense treasuries that they use to successfully get more donations, successfully lobby elected officials and donate to re-election campaigns. No single organization has the funds to totally fight this evil.

This alliance is so critical to shed light on our true relationships with animals. A history that extends to the earliest stages of human and domestic animal evolution. Thank you for your work and your dedication.

NAIA advocates for our pets and their people. This organization ably works to protect our rights to own, breed and improve those breeds that we love - and even the ones that are widely reviled. They are worth our support and praise on high!

The National Animal Interest Alliance does a terrific job of educating people of the deceptive statements and practices of the animal rights organizations (not to be confused with animal welfare). They have tons of data they willingly share and are very easy to work with on issues relating to animal ownership.

More than any other broadly inclusive organization, NAIA, ably led by Patti Strand, has created a coalition of people and organizations willing to go to bat to preserve and defend the traditions and industries that together make up a big portion of human - animal interaction.
NAIA tells the truth about animals and their care, and in so doing stands up for animal owners and our society every day. Its diverse supporters make it clear this is no one issue, or one constituency organization, but rather NAIA is on the front lines for all of us. Make it a priority in your charitable giving!

NAIA has gone to bat over and over for the rights of animals, especially dogs and cats. They aren't in the business to euthanize a healthy animal and have empathy and understanding of pure-bred breeders (not the enemy!) as well as pet owners whose rights are being diminished every week.
