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.

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.

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!

Considering that SAEN is pretty much run by two people, the things they've done is impressive. I think of Michael as a walking encyclopedia in his field. You'd be hard-pressed to find someone more dedicated and dogged in pursuit of justice for animals in laboratories.

SAEN is making a true concrete difference for animals in labs right now. This group closes and prosecutes labs, and places former lab victims in sanctuaries.

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.
