I love SAEN. Michael and his family work very hard to end the suffering of laboratory animals. I saw him speak at an Animal Rights Conference and his methods for combating this evil are very practical and get results.

Stop Animal Exploitation Now is the best animal organization out there because they are a grassroot organization that has been there since the beginning of the animal movement, and unlike other organizations that are about press opts and fundraising, they continue to be direct action and making history with their exposes and ground breaking investigations exposing corruption and animal cruelty worldwide. I wish that everyone would support this animal org that is new hope for the animal movement. Michael Budkie always gives facts and statistics instead of emotional sales pitching, to help change horrific conditions. Thank you.

Easily one of the top organizations dealing with animal exploitation in existence. If you donate to organizations that are in support of animals, this is one that will give you the most for your dollar.My wife and I have known them for seven years, and have seen the fruits of their activism. It is all done with honesty and no sensationalism.The work they do has ended the4 suffering of many animals destined to suffer and/or die for needless animal experiments. I highly recommend them.

SAEN is a unique organization in that it focuses solely on animal experimentation. As a local activist and promoter of a plant based diet, I see this issue as crucial to making a better world. They have done so much to expose abuses and educate people on the needless cruelty of vivisection. I know for a fact that this organization uses its money wisely, since I know them personally. They are leaders when it comes to this issue, and one of the most important organizations for the rights of animals on this planet. Anybody interested in a better more compassionate world, this is an organization well worth supporting.

As a member of the Vegan community in Cincinnati, and the Chairman of VeganEarth, I am very pleased to have SAEN as part of our community. There are a handful of groups working to end vivisection, and SAEN is the finest. Their work has gotten amazing results. I personally know both Michael and Karen. The donations that you send are used wisely, every penny. They have done much to expose animal cruelty all over the country, many many times over. I am always happy to support this organization. I usually give to 4 or 5 animal rights groups, and this is at the top of my list. I highly recommend them. Just check on the Internet and see all of the work they have done. It is amazing that such a small group can do so much.

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

Positive results for the animals they represent is what this organization brings. Tireless efforts on behalf of all animals in labs and research. One of only a handful of organizations that speaks up for these often time forgotten beings. I serve as an advisor to this organization on primate issues and support their efforts whenever I can.

SAEN, does more for less than any organization that advocates for the ending of Animal Experimentation than any group I know of. They also provide assistance to many groups that otherwise would not be able to do the work they do without the valuable guidance and assistance of SAEN. SAEN provides valuable information and facts about what is really going on behind the closed doors of many laboratories. They uncover and shine the light on the inside of the labs and that benefits the animals caught up in animal experimentation that do not have a voice otherwise. It's easy to recommend SAEN their work speaks for itself.

The founders, Michael and Karen Budkie, work very hard and take very little in compensation. They have had remarkable success in exposing animal abuse in laboratories and in getting companies and institutions to stop some of their abusive programs. They are also skillful in educating the public about effective activism.

I know of no other animal right organization that has as many successful campaigns as SAEN. Michael, Karen and Stacy have focused like a laser beam on the abuse and exploitation of animals held captive in labs for "research". Their outreach to educate the public of what is really going on in the vivisection has been extremely helpful to me . They are just an amazing organization

SAEN is smokin' hot with SIX facilities/programs closed in FOUR years! The latest being University of Oklahoma's baboon research and breeding program scheduled to close in the coming months all due to SAEN's investigative prowess and media expertise! The other five animal testing programs closed due to SAEN are Harvard Med School's primate center, Cimcool, primate testing at both Wooster College and Penn State Med School, and another primate protocol, undisclosed due to confidentially in exchange for the primates to be retired to a sanctuary. I am very proud to be associated with this effective organization that runs on a small budget with a dedicated staff. Looking forward to many more successful years of effective campaigning to end animal experimentation NOW, not in 100 years!

After being educated in a research setting and witnessing the suffering of innocent animals in labs firsthand, I vowed from that day forward to make a difference by working until all of the cages are empty! In 1996, along with my wife, Karen, I co-founded SAEN - Stop Animal Exploitation Now!, a national non-profit animal advocacy organization dedicated to the rights of all animals concentrating our focus on eliminating the use of animals in experimentation. I invite everyone to educate yourself to be a voice for the animals imprisoned in labs right now and learn how our tax money pays for this torture - check our website (www.saenonline.org) and "like" us on Facebook to educate yourself, get involved, and keep up on our many campaigns.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

Stop Animal Exploitation Now! is the best ant-vivisection organization in the world. Laboratory experiments on animals are cruel, unnecessary, and often redundant. Federally funded vivisection is a waste of taxpayer money and abhorrent to most taxpayers. Michael Budkie and his wife Karen of SAEN have accomplished a lot. They are true heroes for the animals abused in laboratories, many of whom are dogs.
