National Animal Interest Alliance was established to further human-animal interests and to protect bith humans and animals in an enduring bond. It came into being to explain the confusing difference and goals of animal welfare and animal rights. They have done a magnificent job inshowing those differences to the general population, leading to the formation of more localized organizations in areas where that confusion has been exploited by the animal rights advocates. The most basic difference is that animal welfare advocates wish to preserve and improve human-animal relationships, and animal rights advocates wish to destroy all human-animal interactions at even disastrous cost to both. NAIA has ceaselessly worked to oppose legislation nationwide and lically that would impose the animal rights goals. They have done this with educational support and through local participation, rather than through lobbying with tax free donated dollars. NAIA has taken the high road, though the animal rights advocates do not know it exists. Naia has exposed the end results of proposed bad legislation and punitive laws concerning all stages of animal ownership and rallied people in those jurisdictions to oppose them through education and information. They are the first and best organization of their kind and deserve far more support in every way.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Fighting some really inane laws that would have resulted in decreased pet ownership and decreased services to pet owners. I have fought proposed laws that would directly affect food availability for humans and pets. I was made aware of these peoposed laws through the informational and analytical services of NAIA.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would give them more funds and personal time to further their reach and goals.

NAIA is the only organization that tells the whole story about the animal welfare movement and helps one distinguish between animal welfare and animal rights rhetoric. If you care about your right to own pets, to hunt and to fish, to go to a circus and the future of animal husbandry in this country, then you should support the efforts of the National Animal Interest Alliance (NAIA). NAIA provides facts not fiction and the references and tools to make a difference locally and nationally.

NAIA has collected real number shelter statistics and tells the truth. They have written a Model Animal Control Ordinance which addresses the problems of dogs running at large and makes owners responsible for pets.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Torrance County, New Mexico where they helped with the Animal Control Ordinance.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fund them more.

NAIA represents the interests of animal owners and users who believe that laws and regulations governing human-animal relationships must be based in fact and science, provide humane standards, respect the constitutional rights of humans, and have a rational foundation and purpose. The organization is a resource for public agencies developing statutes and standards, and for private groups seeking to promote best practices as the basis for their programs and those of government entities.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I use the NAIA online library for research in formulating policies in my organization and for informing legislators of sound principles that can be incorporated if laws are needed to manage animal use or ownership.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase awareness of lawmakers and among the general public of NAIA's expertise and resources so better-informed decisions would be made on animal issues.
