NAIA is NOT an animal welfare organization.

It is an industry front group defending animal cruelty for profit. Look at its board of directors: circuses, horse slaughterers, factory farmers, rodeo organizers, puppy mill apologists, lab animal breeders and vivisectionists, fur farmers...
it's a Who's Who of corporate animal abusers.

This group exists for one purpose, and one purpose only: to defend the ability of corporate interests to profit from the abuse of animals.

The Great!

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

NAIA undermines animal welfare initiatives and demonizes legitimate animal protection charities. They have little influence on the public, but are heavily involved in lobbying, especially in protecting irresponsible breeders.

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

Call for an immediate IRS investigation into this questionable organization. According to NAIA's 2009 Form 990, more than 61% of their income was used to pay their employees lavish salaries.

This does not qualify as a charity! It is a front group for industries that exploit animals for profit. It looks out for profits, not animals.

The Great!

I've seen how they deceive people into thinking they legitimately care about animals, when it's a ruse to gain sympathy for those who exploit animals for profit.

Disband it.

The NAIA is a group of individuals dedicated to the preservation of the animal human bond. Members from all walks of life strive to support animal welfare and fight against the animal rights movement that seeks to remove animals from our homes. If you love your dog, thank a breeder. If you ate today, thank a farmer.

NAIA celebrates the human-animal bond. It supports animal welfare and counters the animal rights movement's lies and exaggerations with the truth. The website is a source of valuable information in countering the animal rights agenda, providing model legislation, white papers,and thoroughly researched articles in its extensive library. Additionally, it maintains a chronology of acts of animal rights extremism, and a large quote file of statements by animal rights leaders that clearly shows their intent to block the enjoyment and use of animals for human benefit. NAIA's annual conferences bring together a wide variety of experts dealing with all areas of animal welfare - pets, animal agriculture, entertainment, biomedical research and more.

The Great!

Thank God that NAIA is there to counter the absurdities & misrepresentations of the animal rights fanatics. NAIA is concerned with genuine animal welfare. They focus on sensible, enforceable legislation that is balanced & reality based, not the heart-tugging, hysteria of so many other groups.

I have been aware of the outstanding efforts of this organization for many years. Dedicated volunteers from across the spectrum of people who work with and depend upon animals devote countless hours to sharing information in support of animal welfare. Professionals share their expertise and help the public keep a sense of balance regarding the human-animal bond. NAIA represents a voice of reason and acts in the interest of all of us...human and non-human animals alike.

The Great!

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

learning more about specific standards that exist in various animal use communities. The research behind their "white" papers is extraordinary.

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

try to engage even more sectors of the animal use community, specifically biotech.

I've been a member of NAIA almost as long as I've been fighting the bogus organizations that only *claim* to help animals. NAIA really does help animals to live safe, happy, fulfilling lives, AND THEIR OWNERS to take appropriate care of said animals. One really great project NAIA has ongoing is to colect data from as many animal shelters as possible in all 50 states to determine what the intake, placement and kill rates really are. No one else has does this data gathering, but without it intelligent animal policy cannot be determined.

The Great!

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

The NAIA web site has gathered important information in our fight for appropriate animal WELFARE laws -- for example peer-reviewed scientific literature reviews on the question of early spay/neuter of cats and dogs.

make it more proactive in achieving its mission of helping animals and animal owners. We zshould not wait for groups such as HSUS to act, and then just react; we should do more independent campaigns telling our story/

NAIA is a fantastic organization! It is all about animal welfare. It is also all about our rights and responsibilities as owners. It is not an animal rights organization that elevates animals above humans. NAIA uses common-sense approaches to today's issues of ownership and breeding of all animals. NAIA recognizes the huge role animals play in our lives. Few organizations today provide the balance between animal welfare and owner rights and responsibilites; NAIA does this exceptionally well. There is a lot of helpful and eye-opening information at their website. It is my go-to source for talking points when reviewing legislation., and deciding whether to oppose or support bills. I hope this organization continues to grow!

The Great!

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

Being able to review legislation and work with legislators to support good bills, or oppose bad bills.

Make it larger, with many new members committed to saving our rights and relationships with our animals. We need more people to be involved in legislation!

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

Daily we see our rights to own and/or breed our animals being removed. Unlawful seizures of animals that fly in the face of our Constitution-guaranteed rights to due process have me really concerned about our future. Will we have dogs and other pets? Will we have agricultural animals? Will we have the opportunity to see animals in a zoo where we learn how wonderful they are and get motivated to help them in the wild? Organizations like NAIA are working to ensure that we do, unlike the animal rights organizations that are bent on removing animals from our lives in every aspect. If I can help grow this organization, let it be heard across the nation, my donations are well spent!

Why did you make your donation at this time?

I donate annually as a member. The more funds NAIA has, the better they can get the 'word' out. Education the public on these issues takes money.

What would you tell others about this organization?

I would tell anyone that enjoys their pets, whether they are birds, fish, cats, dogs, horses, or reptiles that their support of NAIA will help ensure that we keep them and have them in the future. Their support of NAIA will also help ensure that we are allowed to make the choice in our diets to eat meat, dairy, egs, etc. Those that want to be vegetarian or vegan can do so. We should also have the right not to choose that life-style.
