Hazel was a ten-week old pup whose owners were going to have her euthanized because she had parvo and they said they could not afford her treatment. Luckily the veterinary hospital reached out to A Pathway to Hope and asked if we could help. We said that we would save Hazel's life. Little Hazel hovered at the brink of death for almost a week ~ dehydrated and vomiting and not responding to treatment... And then she finally turned the corner. She recovered and became the beautiful happy little pup we knew she would be and found her forever home.
This success story would not have been possible with wonderful non-profit associations such as National Anti-Vivisection Society. As Hazel's medical bills grew, we reached out to NAVS and asked if they could help. We were granted a very generous Sanctuary Fund which went toward Hazel's medical bills.
A small rescue such as A Pathway to Hope relies on the assistance of wonderful non profits to help us continue the work we need to do to save lives.

I work for an organization that has been the recipient of NAVS's Sanctuary Fund. They were a delight to work with and are always eager to help organizations who help animals. I appreciate all they do!

Wonderful organization staffed by caring people! I run a small nonprofit rescue and through their Sanctuary Grant program, I've been able to help many animals in crisis who I otherwise couldn't. They do so much good for so many animals and animal-related causes and I highly recommend them!

As the director of Stray Central, a small animal rescue, I cannot thank NAVS and their sanctuary grant fund enough for all the help they've given us over the years! Because of them, we've been able to help many feral cat colonies, assist in hoarding situations, give many animals much needed vet care, help communities ravaged by mother nature, and many other projects we wouldn't have been able to take on without their assistance. They're an absolute delight to work with, staffed with very knowledgable and caring people, and their focus in near and dear to my heart. I can't say enough about what a fantastic organization this is! :-) Bless you, NAVS!! Lisa Barnett

NAVS does amazing work, our favorite thing they do is to help animals directly with funds when large emergency rescues come up and also helping sanctuaries with much needed projects. They are always awesome to work with and generous with their help. A terrific organization!

We are the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary and we give forever homes to non-releasable, native Montana wildlife. We have received two grants from NAVS. They have made a huge difference for our facility. Our first grant helped us build a permanent home for 'Margi' our yellowbellied marmot. Our second grant will enable us to give year round homes to our migratory Sandhill Cranes and turkey vultures. NAVS has been a truly wonderful asset to our organization.

I like the work of this organization very much. I give regularly because I know they are working hard to free animals from the horror of vivisection.

NAVS does not feel like a distant animal rights organization run not by humans but by computer code. NAVS is on the ground keeping in touch with individuals in the several states where legislation is pending on animal rights. I know because I'm one of those individuals they personally contacted. Through NAVS I got the opportunity to take local action and to feel that I was really accomplishing something on behalf of laboratory animals. Thanks, NAVS!

I have been with the N.A.V.S. for many years now. This group does great work for the animals. Our animals needlessly suffer experimentation that is cruel and deadly and has always been unnecessary.

Thank God and thank you for never giving up on our animals.

As a non-profit farm animal sanctuary who found ourselves needing help funding a home for rescued pigs this year, we will be the first tell you that N.A.V.S. came through and very literally saved the day! They were extremely kind, prompt, organized, and offered us assistance quickly when we needed it in order to be able to save lives. Because of their grant to build a pig barn, we were able to rescue four additional pigs this year besides the two we had planned to intake. These four came from various situations (two who both have special needs including deafness and mobility issues came from an extreme cruelty case, one was saved from slaughter by a local farmhand, and one more was able to join his two brothers at the sanctuary after their mother leapt, pregnant, from a transport truck speeding down the highway). We are proud to talk about the important life-saving work N.A.V.S. does during our programs and visitor days and are so very grateful for them.
