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.

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!

SAEN is the best animal right organization I have ever known. No one comes close to their effectiveness in working to help animals caught in the cruel and unethical world animal testing

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 the rare animal organization that always puts the animals first. No ego, no fundraising for the sake of fundraising, and nothing but hard work. I am proud to have been volunteering with them for almost ten years.

SAEN speaks truth and takes action to back it up. There is no hidden agenda. The name of the organization says it all... they work tirelessly 24/7 to bring awareness to the world of vivisection and stopping those that choose to practice this archaic practice. SAEN has an impressive success rate. I admire their hard work and dedication.

SAEN is one of my very favorite groups because they are a small organizations that does BIG things to fight vivisection. They have dedicated staff who really know how to get the needed information to bust these laboratories and then they do, they also teach activists what is going on in the labs and how we can fight it and win. They continue to educate the public about vivisection & have saved so many animals from the torture of vivisection and will save many more.

George Bernard Shaw wrote- "Those who don't hesitate to vivisect will hardly hesitate to lie about it!"
Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN) is a very effective group that is exposing those lies by fighting to end vivisection, the practice of using & abusing animals in the name of medical research. This group has exposed & busted many laboratories for their abuse of animals, teaches people the truth about vivisection, which is that it is scientifically fraudulent, and helps them become better anti-vivsectionists. Vivisection also hurts & kills people so SAEN is helping both animals & humans. SAEN is certainly worthy of this grant!

SAEN is a wonderful organization that has made great strides in putting an end to animal experimentation. They have done great work, especially recently with the closure of the Promate Lab at Harvard Universtiyy (by 2015). It always a pleasure to volunteer with SAEN.
