When are we as Human beings going to stop horendous acts of cruel confinement, experiments, and killing of helpless lab animals including, rats, mice, rabbits, cats, dogs, pigs, monkeys, birds, etc. etc. ?

The word human should stand for HUMANE but mankind is still performing barbaric acts against defenseless, living, breathing, souls. How intelligent does a chimp have to be before poisoning it - is considered an act of murder? AAVS has been around for a long time bringing these issues out in the open to help animals and promote change. This organization is vital in so many ways including; promoting change through educating people about animal suffering.

This is a great organization and is quite efficient with their resources. Almost all funds they receive are used for mission purposes. I think they are among the best organizations around.

I Love this organization and its vital mission. It is so important that we show support for groups that have dedicated themselves to saving these animals from torture and lives of degradation and misery in the name of the False G-d of science.

I feel very good about donating to this charity. The cruelty and abuse of animals in the guise of science is appalling and inexcusable. This organization seems very efficient and is addressing this horrible phenomena from every angle, and I would encourage others to support them in every way possible.

Our four legged family members have no voice unless the fearless are willing to help. The work that AAVS is important and allows the hideous cruelty to be exposed. We all need to 'see' all cruelty as unacceptable and help to bring the much needed change. Thank you for all that you do.

I am very much inspired by AAVS and the work they have done and continue to do to stop any form of cruelty to animals. It's been said that one of the best ways to judge the greatness of a country is by the way it treats its animals. I truly believe this because this is an indication of a country's compassion and gives an overall view of how it values its citizens as well. I strongly believe AAVS deserves the top rated non-profit status. Let's all work together to stop animal cruelty. As bad as human cruelty is, animal cruelty is worse because they have no choice and no voice and no way to fight back. LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO STOP ANIMAL CRUELTY NOW!!! THEY WEREN'T PUT ON THIS EARTH TO BE MISTREATED ANYMORE THAN WE HUMANS WERE.

Have donated to this very humane and worthwhile charity for years. Animals are sentient beings and "voiceless" and need our protection and advocacy. I like what they do in this regard.
