AAVS is the best nonprofit organization I know of as they have the best mission. I highly support everything they do to advocate for animal welfare and I try to use every opportunity they give me to take action on behalf of the animals.

They have amazing newsletters that bring light to new developments and methods of testing and research that replaces the unnecessary use of animals in labs. They have petitions to sign to help bring these methods to use. It's come time to make these changes because there are extreme improvements in the accuracy of these tests and their results.

AAVS has been an effective leader in make more aware of the plight of animals in research testing and in changing the perspective on how we view animals. More people are beginning to see the wondrous, loving, sentient beings animals are and that they are not disposable.

AAVS brings the horrors and wasteful spending on useless experiments to the forefront.

Our fellow animals were not born to be tested by humans. As the great Gandhi said, "The moral greatness of a nation can be determined by how its animals are treated." His sage words applies to corporations and humans alike.
