Review for Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!, Milford, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Wow, this is SAEN's 20th anniversary this year, and with each passing year we are continually evolving our approach in fighting the exploitation of animals imprisoned in labs. Our recent successes speak volumes for SAEN has forever closed seven labs/protocols in the last four years, initiated over four dozen labs being successfully prosecuted by the USDA in the last 2 1/2 years, and consistently garners over a hundred media stories annually exposing the negligence and ineptitude of these heinous facilities forever tarnishing their reputations in the eyes of the general public. Stay tuned for we have only just begun to fight!

Review for Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!, Milford, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

SAEN is smokin' hot with SIX facilities/programs closed in FOUR years! The latest being University of Oklahoma's baboon research and breeding program scheduled to close in the coming months all due to SAEN's investigative prowess and media expertise! The other five animal testing programs closed due to SAEN are Harvard Med School's primate center, Cimcool, primate testing at both Wooster College and Penn State Med School, and another primate protocol, undisclosed due to confidentially in exchange for the primates to be retired to a sanctuary. I am very proud to be associated with this effective organization that runs on a small budget with a dedicated staff. Looking forward to many more successful years of effective campaigning to end animal experimentation NOW, not in 100 years!

Review for International Primate Protection League, Summerville, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with the Dr. Shirley McGreal, founder, and the excellent staff of the International Primate Protection League for over two decades. They are the most effective organization in the entire animal protection movement for dealing with the international trade in non-human primates, whether they are sold to zoos, labs, or into private ownership. From insuring the prosecution of illegal dealers, to funding sanctuaries around the world, to educating the entire world about the abuse of primates -- the International Primate Protection League has no equal. They are THE source for useful information on the international trade in primates. In addition to their other monumental tasks they also operate a sanctuary for gibbons that provides the absolute best care for several dozen of these gentle apes. I never miss an opportunity to visit the sanctuary because it reminds me of what I am fighting for in my own work for animals. In short, I cannot recommend this organization more highly. Happy 40th Anniversary IPPL!

Review for Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!, Milford, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After being educated in a research setting and witnessing the suffering of innocent animals in labs firsthand, I vowed from that day forward to make a difference by working until all of the cages are empty! In 1996, along with my wife, Karen, I co-founded SAEN - Stop Animal Exploitation Now!, a national non-profit animal advocacy organization dedicated to the rights of all animals concentrating our focus on eliminating the use of animals in experimentation. I invite everyone to educate yourself to be a voice for the animals imprisoned in labs right now and learn how our tax money pays for this torture - check our website (www.saenonline.org) and "like" us on Facebook to educate yourself, get involved, and keep up on our many campaigns.
