I've been involved with NAIA since it was originally formed and can tell you, without a doubt, they are the #1 organization for protecting our rights when it concerns animal issues. I gladly and wholeheartedly give them a 5 star rating!

NAIA is an organization that began with the premise that all animal interests need representation, under one tent, against increasing adversarial conditions. They have never lost the sight of their goals, expanding their reach into broader and more innovative areas. NAIA defends animal owners' interests by increasing the public's and legislator's knowledge with factual information, giving the members and the public tools for their own distribution with media, websites, conferences and presentations.

There is no other advocacy and educational organization that represents the conjoined interests of societal need coupled with animal welfare as does NAIA. Human societies require animal life and animals require our benevolent stewardship. NAIA supports this understanding by educating and pushing back against extremist and anti-human activism. The truth they share is little told by others however all should hear it!

The NAIA is by far the best animal welfare organization to which to donate. Unlike some so called Humane Society groups -- virtually 100% of your donation given to the NAIA will go to protecting the animals as well as your rights.

I was fortunate enough to attend the 2015 Annual Conference of the NAIA and cannot begin to express the wealth of quality information shared over the two day period. Support the NAIA; they do incredible work. Follow their page; stay informed. You are certain to obtain the facts with the NAIA.

NAIA is a great organization that works to tell the truth about HSUS and PETA. These two organizations take donations but do nothing to help animals in need. They are working to eliminate animals from our lives, in all aspects, companions, food, zoos.
NAIA works hard and deserves all the help and donations we can give to them to save our animals.

NAIA is a true nonprofit that spends its funding on educating the public, about maintaining our relationships with all animals as well as writing model laws. If you want to know the truth visit NAIA's website and you will find real data studies regarding the welfare of all animals.
This is the organization one should follow and support not others whose sole goal is to eliminate animals including companion animals from our lives. Great to see the truth in Print.

If you love your cat dog, horse, guinea pig , etc., THIS organization is your savior from the potentially devastating effects of high profile groups that prey on your compassion, but have none of their own. THiS organization relies on FACTS and has the human/ animal bond and its PRESERVATION as its core mission. So many so called "animal rights" organizations are only greed and hysteria driven and seek to destroy our rights. Put your money where it counts and support NAIA! Protect your rights to own, love and work with the animals your cherish and help this organization protect those rights for future generations. It is supported by my American Shetland Sheepdog Association.

As someone who works in animal welfare advocacy, it is truly upsetting to see the actions of groups like NAIA, protecting animal exploiters under the guise of animal welfare. They are a lobbying group to protect the profits of those who make money from exploiting animals, whether it's animal experimentation, circuses, puppy mills or horse slaughter, NAIA always speaks out for the rights of abusers.

NAIA is an industry funded lobbying business. The NAIA advocates for puppy mills, factory farms and research labs who use animals. The NAIA has opposed any legislation that alleviates suffering and curtails abuse of animals used as commodities.

NAIA is NOT an animal welfare organization.

It is an industry front group defending animal cruelty for profit. Look at its board of directors: circuses, horse slaughterers, factory farmers, rodeo organizers, puppy mill apologists, lab animal breeders and vivisectionists, fur farmers... it's a Who's Who of corporate animal abusers.

This group exists for one purpose, and one purpose only: to defend the ability of corporate interests to profit from the abuse of animals.

This charity exists solely to protect the interests of those who exploit animals. It is outrageous that it's allowed to function as a non-profit.

National Animal Interest Alliance was established to further human-animal interests and to protect bith humans and animals in an enduring bond. It came into being to explain the confusing difference and goals of animal welfare and animal rights. They have done a magnificent job inshowing those differences to the general population, leading to the formation of more localized organizations in areas where that confusion has been exploited by the animal rights advocates. The most basic difference is that animal welfare advocates wish to preserve and improve human-animal relationships, and animal rights advocates wish to destroy all human-animal interactions at even disastrous cost to both. NAIA has ceaselessly worked to oppose legislation nationwide and lically that would impose the animal rights goals. They have done this with educational support and through local participation, rather than through lobbying with tax free donated dollars. NAIA has taken the high road, though the animal rights advocates do not know it exists. Naia has exposed the end results of proposed bad legislation and punitive laws concerning all stages of animal ownership and rallied people in those jurisdictions to oppose them through education and information. They are the first and best organization of their kind and deserve far more support in every way.

NAIA is the only organization that tells the whole story about the animal welfare movement and helps one distinguish between animal welfare and animal rights rhetoric. If you care about your right to own pets, to hunt and to fish, to go to a circus and the future of animal husbandry in this country, then you should support the efforts of the National Animal Interest Alliance (NAIA). NAIA provides facts not fiction and the references and tools to make a difference locally and nationally.

NAIA is one of the truly honest advocates for animal welfare and the pet owner. They have no agenda other than to preserve animal welfare and the relationship between pet and the family. They educate, write model laws that are fair and promote the needs of all animals and their present good models of pet ownership around this country. They have excellent resources of information on all types of animals and issues surrounding animal welfare. This is the go to place for accurate information and resources.

I regularly use the data gathered by NAIA to refute semi-hysterical claims. They use a logical, scientific approach rather than one based on emotions. As a scientist, I prefer a scientific approach, not one based on conjecture and emotion.

NAIA represents the interests of animal owners and users who believe that laws and regulations governing human-animal relationships must be based in fact and science, provide humane standards, respect the constitutional rights of humans, and have a rational foundation and purpose. The organization is a resource for public agencies developing statutes and standards, and for private groups seeking to promote best practices as the basis for their programs and those of government entities.

NAIA helps animal owners and lovers to understand the roles of humans and animals. THey have worked hard to promote animal welfare and to educate the public on the differences between animal welfare and animal rights. They help individuals or communities that are developing, writing or reviewing legislation that effects animals and animal owners. They will help to ensure legislation is protective of the animals welfare and does not effect the owners personal property rights.

NAIA is an organization that seeks to educate the public about animal issues, without all the emotion and bias that often colors the understanding of those issues. Using facts derived from independently conducted research and through consulting with experts in their fields, NAIA works to protect the human - domestic animal bond in all its forms.

I have been honored to work with NAIA on issues and regard them as a powerful resource in my understanding of other issues regarding animals, animal welfare and animal welfare politics.
