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, founded over 20 years ago by Patti Strand, is clearly the leader in the Animal Welfare arena. Still led by Patti, this is the most highly regarded, science based, reasonable organization in the US. Her board of directors is unparalleled by any other animal welfare organization. Recommendations are made based on science and facts rather than emotion. No other organization of its kind can match the NAIA's resources.
Great organization serving the interests of animals AND the people who care for them. We need more groups like NAIA and less animal rights groups.
This non-profit genuinely reviews all legislation proposed in the US that impacts the dog world in a negative way, then responds , with others, to ensure that the legislation is dropped, or reworked in a way that eliminates the offensive parts.
The NAIA is the only umbrella group out there protecting our relationships with animals on every level. They are avid defenders of animal welfare and the human-animal bond and are relied upon by the public, media and legislators to provide entirely factual information regarding animals, people and our lives together. Anyone who truly loves animals should become involved with the NAIA.
I have been a Board Member for more than 20 years in this organization. As a Biomedical researcher I consider this organization to be crucially important in protecting my ability to carry out research that one day can lead to cures for both human and animal diseases. NAIA is one of the few legitimate animal welfare organization that stands up to the hateful malevolence of the animal rights extremists whose ultimate goal is to destroy the human-animal bond that enriches all of our lives.

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!
More than any other broadly inclusive organization, NAIA, ably led by Patti Strand, has created a coalition of people and organizations willing to go to bat to preserve and defend the traditions and industries that together make up a big portion of human - animal interaction.
NAIA tells the truth about animals and their care, and in so doing stands up for animal owners and our society every day. Its diverse supporters make it clear this is no one issue, or one constituency organization, but rather NAIA is on the front lines for all of us. Make it a priority in your charitable giving!
This is the best animal protection organization in the nation - bar none! Working to protect our rights as well as the animals!
The NAIA gets 5 stars for being a true animal welfare organization. This organization promotes the humane treatment of all animals and opposes all abuse. This organization also supports the rights of animal ownership and works to expose the animal rights agenda as well as supporting the American mainstream human/animal relationship -- which is why extremist animal rights people have issues with the NAIA. The terms animal welfare and animal rights are not interchangeable and the fact that many animal rights people are trying to deceptively call themselves animal welfare doesn’t make them such. The NAIA deserves the support of all animal loving mainstream America.
They are a science based animal welfare group. Great educational conferences and excellent work educating about the himan animal bond and the baluBle role of animals in our lives.
This is an organization that is constantly working to strengthen the role of dogs in our society. Fighting for reasonable animal legislation and against unreasonable and dangerous legislation. Protecting and promoting responsible breeding of all animals. Dispensing information and educating anyone willing to listen. I am a former dog breeder and showed them for many years. I own and run a boarding kennel and own goats and a donkey. I am always looking for information from NAIA and am never disappointed.
There are people out there whose goal is to have no more purposeful dog breeding, with the ultimate goal of no dog ownership by humans. Thank goodness NAIA exists to help advocate for animal lovers who disagree! Purebred dogs are wonderful beings, just like mixed breed dogs, and there should be no shame in striving to create purebred dogs or in owning purebred or mixed breed dogs. NAIA works to protect the interests of many others who work with animals, be they elephants or horses or cattle. NAIA understands the bond between humans and animals and the intensity of this connection between the animals and those who devote themselves to animals. NAIA is advocating for the love of and concern for animals.
The general public does not understand (or maybe care) that there are several organizations in the Country and more in States that have immense treasuries that they use to successfully get more donations, successfully lobby elected officials and donate to re-election campaigns. No single organization has the funds to totally fight this evil.
This alliance is so critical to shed light on our true relationships with animals. A history that extends to the earliest stages of human and domestic animal evolution. Thank you for your work and your dedication.
NAIA advocates for our pets and their people. This organization ably works to protect our rights to own, breed and improve those breeds that we love - and even the ones that are widely reviled. They are worth our support and praise on high!
Great group. .protecting our rights to own and work with animals.
The National Animal Interest Alliance does a terrific job of educating people of the deceptive statements and practices of the animal rights organizations (not to be confused with animal welfare). They have tons of data they willingly share and are very easy to work with on issues relating to animal ownership.
Doing a great job of informing people on important issues.
NAIA has gone to bat over and over for the rights of animals, especially dogs and cats. They aren't in the business to euthanize a healthy animal and have empathy and understanding of pure-bred breeders (not the enemy!) as well as pet owners whose rights are being diminished every week.
