SAEN is a great group, working constantly to help animals in labs in all possible ways. I support them 100%!
Love to SAEN for the thousands of animals, now and future generations, they have rescued and saved from the abuses of animal experimentation AND to the millions and millions of people they have exposed the issue to over the years.
I think since 2008 or so I've been familiar with the vital work SAEN does & the list of achievements seems to be reliably consistent. They improve the lives of hundreds of animals annually & are constantly being whistle-blowers of laboratories violating the limited laws that benefit animals otherwise doomed to Vivisection.
I have had numerous experiences in these last 9 years doing on-the-ground protests for SAEN, hearing SAEN's latest news in their presentations at Animal Rights conferences in Washington D. C., Florida, California, & their home city, the land of Proctor & Gamble, Cincinnati, OH.
Over the years I've come to know the founders, Karen & Michael Budkie & I know that their work for animals is their life. They're entirely dedicated & effectively operate SAEN.
Great at documenting & promoting their efforts & successes, their work is not on a small-scale or localized but nationally & occasionally internationally recognized.
SAEN's news conferences are proving again & again to be the best & favored method for quickly making the public aware of the latest crimes committed by the revolting & unnecessary industry that is Vivisection.
-Not only is SAEN making the public aware of the horrendous bizarre acts committed behind closed doors but they truly are putting fear into the financiers, suppliers, & management of of these laboratories. Legally, SAEN is finding the "Achilles' Heal" where these laboratories can do no more than evolve away from testing on animals or outright shutting them down.
I have total faith that every day the investigators at SAEN give their best to their bottom line: to end suffering & to open the cages. They are truly among the best animal advocates.
I saw a representative of SAEN speak last week at the South Florida VeganFest and was extremely impressed at the dedication and knowledge of this group. I went originally to this event to learn more about vegan food and ended up walking away with much more because of SAEN's presentation, "The $14 Billion Hoax – Correcting the Myths and Combating the Propaganda." I did not know that our gov't is wasting so much of our tax money on animal experimentation. Definitely, following this group on social media and donating to SAEN.
SAEN is an incredible organization that works tirelessly to advocate for animals in laboratories. I have seen first-hand the countless hours the directors and volunteers dedicate to this cause that is so near to their hearts. Unlike some of the bigger nonprofits, SAEN is more concerned with ending animal experimentation and changing the lived realities of animals trapped in labs than they are with marketing their brand. If you donate to SAEN (time and/or money), you can be certain that your donation is really making a difference. I have seen SAEN's efforts create real change and progress -- SAEN's campaigns are direct, well-researched, well-organized, and largely successful. The organization's goal (as I understand it) is to end animal experimentation -- Because SAEN is out there fighting on the front lines, I believe that this is a real possibility. I have the utmost respect for SAEN, its directors, and its campaigns. SAEN is an honest, transparent, and worthy nonprofit, and a fighting force to combat a horrific industry.
SAEN has been in the vanguard for the animals for many years. My experience with them has shown a very small group of people with impeccable integrity. Their effect on championing change in the area of animal experimentation far out sizes the size of the organization. In essence, two people have accomplished more year to year than larger organizations with budgets of millions in dollars. I would dare say that they are so effective that at times others have taken credit for what they have accomplished to do no more than steal the thunder that SAEN has done.
This is one non-profit that you and I can absolutely feel confident in investing in. While they do not have the budget to have a large media megaphone you can be assured that they do very good work and get more accomplished that any other two or three organization combine do in this field.
The animals have NO credit card BUT I can use mine to show that SAEN knows the way to go to make a difference in our world NOW and SAEN does just that - AND HOW! SAEN has 100% of my support and gratitude for their tireless dedication to tackle the grueling issue of animal experimentation.
I first came into contact with the people of SAEN about seven years ago at an animal rights conference. Realizing that we happen to live in the same state, we've had occasion to attend different events relating to the care of animals, and I've visited their offices, as well.
I can honestly say that they are 100% dedicated to the animals. Nearly every waking moment is spent researching and exposing the atrocities committed in the name of science. Without their dedication and resulting publicity, the animals who are victimized by these companies, labs, and universities would have no hope of freedom.
Our government requires that records be filed by these labs revealing the deaths and incidents of neglect. If it weren't for the people at SAEN, those records would gather dust in a file somewhere. SAEN shines the light at the end of the tunnel for the animals by showing the government its own records of deaths and neglect, demanding the requisite fines, and making sure that the public in general is informed, as well. Labs with continuous records of abuse and neglect have been shut down, all because of the hard work and dedication of SAEN.
It's not an easy thing to do, reading of the horrible things done to animals. But it's something that must be done and the people at SAEN are doing a wonderful job of it.
This group of dedicated people is second to none in its efforts to bring awareness and create change. Until I began to read their articles, I really had no idea of just what went on behind those lab walls. They work tirelessly to prevent the offenders from continuing their atrocities by bringing to light the offenses that are all documented in official records. SAEN acts upon the documented facts and brings it to the media and the rest of us, and then follows through to demand changes. Imagine having to dig through the thousands of documents that are required to be kept by labs and read of the horrors that people call "science," day in and day out. Without SAEN's work, these incidents would just continue to be statistics. But SAEN won't let the labs or our government forget that these are sentient beings who are being legally and illegally abused. Rules, as weak as they are, must be followed and labs must be held accountable. Thankfully, SAEN is right there doing it for us.
SAEN is a unique organization in that it focuses solely on animal experimentation. Effectively honing all of their resources, attention and energies onto one issue keeps them driven and determined to make concrete changes now. SAEN is doing so much to expose abuses and educate people on the needless cruelty on this issue. If interested in seeing animal experimentation end, then please support this front runner of an organization as SAEN is well worth supporting.
SAEN is a very effective organization fighting for the animals imprisoned in labs. I really like this group because they only work on one issue which I feel makes them more effective as all of their resources are focused on a single target. I started donating to them after having met them at a conference. Since then I have participated in some of their annual events, World Week and Primate Liberation Week, that SAEN organizes each year after they put me in touch with a local coordinator in my area. I would highly recommend SAEN as they are a very dedicated and professional group that gets a lot accomplished on a small budget.
SAEN is a very effective organization that achieves so much on so little. They speak for the voiceless...please help support their work!
Still, one of the premier organizations out there due to their in-depth and tenacious investigations of labs involved in animal research. Saw their staff speak at AR2014 and was very impressed with their knowledge and willingness to share so to educate everyone on the undue suffering endured by animals and for the wastefulness of taxpayers' money on antiquated "science". Long live, SAEN!
