I first learned of the AAVS in 1975 as a teenager. I found a pamphlet of their on a train. I have been a supporter ever since!
AAVS sends a fantastic, unique message to save the animals!
I am so grateful to AAVS for their commitment to saving lives. Animals cannot speak up or defend for themselves, and AAVS makes sure that real change happens and innocent animals are protected. THANK YOU!!
They do awesome work fighting to protect innocent beings from unnecessary torment.
They do a lot of great work. I have signed petitions for them. They educate people on the horrific things done to sensitive, feeling beings in the name of 'science", that really yields no results. They are awesome for stepping up to make change and get rid of archaic, barbaric practices that torture innocent beings and waste taxpayer dollars.
The reviews left by others are spot on--I really can't improve on their eloquence. I continue to be amazed that with advancements made with artificial intelligence, 3D printing, lab-created non-animal tissue, and the current ability to realistically duplicate anatomical models, animals are still used for cruel experimentation and in educational institutions as teaching resources. And, how does a mouse's or frog's anatomy duplicate that of human's? And, do folks realize that animal experiments are also being conducted in space on the International Space Station? Thank you AAVS for all that you do on behalf of the defenseless animals that suffer.
I have been a supporter of AAVS for many years. Having read the history behind this organization and the goals they strive for in protecting animals from some of the worst abuses they face solidified that support. I have read about the horrific lab experiments and tests that take place; it is gut wrenching to say the least. Animals used in research are never seen, heard or much less thought about, but their cries are heard by AAVS, and they strive to bring attention to the suffering that takes place at the expense of these animals' lives. They have and always will have my support because they are the voice the unseen, unheard and forgotten so desperately need.
I have been a supporter of AAVS for many years. They have been, and continue to be, a strong voice and advocate for those hidden away in labs, research and educational facilities. The suffering is hidden, but AAVS brings it to the forefront so people can see firsthand the mistreatment and gives them the opportunity to act. Abuse and inhumane treatment of our animal species needs to end--AAVS is leading the charge to help make that ideal a reality.
I have been a supporter of this charity for many years. They do great work helping to not only make people aware of how much cruelity animals suffer in labs, but helps end these horrific practices, as well as getting some of these animals out of labs and into good homes. A voice for the hidden and voiceless, doing necessary work. i ferl good to donate hard earned money, i knowvit is well used
Wonderful charity that give their all to the worthy cause of educating the public and helping leave the outdated, cruel and unnecessary animal testing behind.
I love that AAVS has been a pioneer in cruelty free shopping and the Leaping Bunny program. They also have worked for decades to provide students for support and alternatives to vivisection in schools. Their publications are also excellent. Top notch group!
I love AAVS. They are taking on vivisection on so many levels and are very successful. From advocating for primates in labs to providing disection alternatives to students to being a leader on cruelty free living with the Leaping Bunny program, AAVS has it all. My contribution is well used by this group. And I really enjoy their magazine. Each issue takes one aspect of vivisection and explores it in depth. I keep them for reference. Keep up the great work, AAVS!
They work to improve the lives of animals and that work is desperately needed. I give them my support and encouragement to continue in their work.
After taking a laboratory medicine class and finding out the real stories behind animal testing, I decided to support AAVS in their quest for testing alternatives. I also support Leaping Bunny. So many Americans do not know the cruelty behind the products they buy. I'm pleased to be part of AAVS's mission.
I’ve supported AAVS for a number of years and truly appreciate their tireless efforts to end animal abuse in all forms, be it ending animal testing for cosmetics, or providing sanctuary for chimpanzees who were kept in labs or years, or providing humane science education as an alternative to animal dissection in our schools. I wish I would’ve had a choice when I had to do dissection in high school - it still haunts me to this day. And I absolutely love their Cruelty-Free shopping app. It’s one of the most used apps on my phone, as it helps me make better informed choices when shopping for cruelty-free products.
AAVS is at the forefront of logic when I comes to animal experimentation. We know that many experiments on animals are done out of curiosity or on known factors that do not need to be repeated. AAVS educates and gives sound reasons why this research seldom if ever translates to human health. There are alternatives which AAVS recommends and NIH and certain universities must listen to this organization that’s shown amazing professionalism.
I just want to thank you for everything you do for animals. We need more nonprofits like you! Keep up the awesome efforts and try not to get compassion fatigue. We have your back. Just keep doing what you're doing! WE WILL END THIS GRISLY INDUSTRY SOME DAY! We need to educate the self centered!
I strongly support The American Anti-Vivisection Society for many reasons, most especially their cruelty-free shopping and the sanctuary support. Given all the horror that our planet and animals current face it's so good to know this wonderful society is dedicated to helping instead of harming our planet and it's sentient beings. Highly recommend!!
A thousand Thanks for your work in educating the public on the horrors of vivisection. You are the Voice for so very many innocents who suffer unimaginable cruelty at the hands of people in laboratories.
Thanks Worlds for being a strong, clear voice for the Animals.
Educating the public is no small task.
You do Good Work.
AAVS is one of the most established and professional animal advocacy organizations that exists. I am a proud monthly supporter because through advocacy, policy, funding, and education, they continue to make a difference in the lives of animals who are trapped in labs and forced to endure cruel, “scientific” experimentation. I fully support the work of AAVS and am grateful for all they do for animals.
This nonprofit shows responsibility in allocating money it receives to protect animals. As a retired science teacher I take pride in donating to AAVS whenever possible
I get lots of emails from them with great stories and many ways in which I can help animals by signing petitions, reach out to governmental agencies and contact my Congressional Reps and Senators. The agency does valuable work, bringing things to our attention that might normally slip under the radar. We should all be taking care of animals on our planet because so many have disappeared over the past decades. Some have become extinct and others are on the verge, so I always look for petitions to sign which can bring attention to their fate. This is a really good organization doing very important work.
This is the non profit that started me on my animal rights journey. I became vegetarian because of this group, started paying attention to animal testing and refuting peoples assumptions. Been a wonderful resource as well.
AAVS funds alternatives to animals in research, provides students with alternatives to dissection in school, guides consumers toward humane companies and products, and gives sanctuary to animals in need. What better non-profit to support than this? AAVS is my choice of charities on smile.Amazon.
AAVS funds alternatives to using animals in research; it helps support students who don't want to do dissection in their science classes; it promotes humane choices when we go shopping. I admire AAVS for all it accomplishes to help protect animals from harm. It is worth your support, too!
AAVS is helping to save animals from cruel experiments. Animals deserve to live their natural lives free from human torture.
AAVS is one of the best non profits fighting to save the lives and reduce suffering in animals subjected to the horrors of experimentation. No one would know truly how much pain animals endure if it weren’t for organizations like AAVS. We as human beings and the animals owe them a great deal of gratitude as they shed light on the horrific and needless abuse of animals in labs. There are many alternatives that are much more effective and reliable than using animals in experiments. AAVS has been working tirelessly to improve the lives and promote alternate means of testing! Please consider supporting this great non profit as they continued their very important work!
I have been a member/donor for many years. This organization has done a lot to help decrease and stop needless and cruel animal testing.
I have been a supporter of this group for many years. They do good work in helping to save animals world wide from torture.
I first became aware of AAVS approximately 30 years ago while conducting research for an undergraduate speech I was preparing against animal testing and vivisection. The materials I found sickened me, gave me great background for my speech and made a lifetime member and donor of me. Since then I have used their Leaping Bunny program and data to inform my shopping experiences and have kept abreast of the wonderful work that they continuously do for all animals in need. Though they are not the only organization who speaks for those who have no voice, I rank AAVS as one of the absolute best. I applaud their dedication and tireless work. They have my utmost respect.
AAVS’s does really important work, including promoting Alternatives Research, Cruelty-Free Shopping, Humane Science Education, and Sanctuary Support. AAVS is tireless, persevering to stop barbaric vivisection on animals and to end this kind of animal suffering. I love the Leaping Bunny site, it helps us find humane alternatives to so many different consumer items. Thanks for all you do AAVS!! ~Kathy D.
AAVS has been an incredibly important source of information and education addressing the state of animals in Laboratories and medical research.
I have been grateful for the expert and thorough data they provide in helping me fight for the END of ALL animal testing and use of animals for medical research.
They are dedicated and driven and have achieved many victories-helping to end the suffering of many animals-along with helping to create a more humane, human relevant testing system. This will ultimately save millions of tax payers money, animal lives and human lives!
AAVS is a voice for animals without a voice. They are proponents of and educators in alternative testing and learning methods to eliminate needless suffering of animals.
When I had a true animal crisis, AAVS was only one of two, out of all the charities, who actually spoke to me on a personal basis about the emergency and were willing to take some real action to help save the many animals involved. They were in contact with me on a person to person basis throughout the crisis
AAVS also operates several important programs such as, Animal Learn, Leaping Bunny, and non animal industry initiatives, which help save animals.
AAVS is worthy of all the support and recognition we can give them for the sake of the many animals they help save!
Thank goodness for this nonprofit group. Since a high school student I have been severely pained by the unethical treatment of these animals. In the last 10 years or so there have been other ways to measure the medicines and how they can work and in a much more efficient manner. Thank God for this group.
The American Anti-Vivisection Society (AAVS), works tirelessly to help the victims of animal experimentation. Through education, advocacy, and the development of alternative methods, AAVS is making the world a better place for animals and people. AAVS also runs a beautiful sanctuary for animals who were used and abused in laboratories and who need and deserve loving care. AAVS is an excellent organization.
AAVS is an excellent organization dedicated to helping animals who suffer and die in silence in laboratories. AAVS educates, advocates and saves animal lives!
Proud to support the work of this important organization. Strategic and effective, they give voice to the helpless to bring about real policy changes.
Anyone who respects life in all its manifestations will adore AAVS! This world would be heaven if no animals were killed or hurt by beings who have free choice. Remember the power of choice--and exercise yours to protect all who share our planet!
I have personally been fighting against animal testing for 35 years. The one thing that gets me about animal testing is their physiology is different than that of a human. For example, a cat can die if given aspirin but yet it's safe for humans.
"The question is not, can they reason? Nor, can they talk? But, can they suffer?" Jeremy Bentham, philosopher, 1748 - 1832.
Social responsibility, ecological preservation and evolution of consciousness are the challenges of this age. It is evident that we have not yet fully evolved as a society when the unconscionable practices, cruelty and inhumane suffering of ALL afflicted animals (no matter what the reason), is still a reality in the 21st century. On the contrary, it's despicable!
I am heavily involved in all facets of animal welfare work from a local to an international level for 51 years and still at it today. I know this organization and the wonderful work they do to help animals. They don't give up where others have failed - they just keep working to improve conditions. Bravo to all of you for doing what you do to help animals.
(paraphrasing here) "The greatness of a civilization is judged by how it treats other lives and species." Other lives are not here for us to play with, torture, experiment, wear in "luxury", disregarding as sentient beings. It has taken 5 billion years for this miracle of life on this planet to reach its interdependent, awesome cohesiveness and wholeness - and a blink of an eye for us to inflict unbelievable suffering and wanton disregarding for that, as well as potentially destroying all life - including ourselves. AAVS has always been on the vanguard for educating, protecting, exposing, qualifying the intrinsic value of all life - and our moral imperative to respect and cherish it. As well, we have Leaping Bunny, my shopping bible (beware of products claiming to be cruelty-free if they do NOT have LB or Peta or the kitty [I forget the name - a new cruelty-free investigation group] symbols! Amazon is one of the evil perpetrators, claiming so many of their products to be cruelty-free - until you ask the vendor or manufacturer and receive - silence!!)
AAVS has helped to protect animals in abolishing cruelty and the callous, needless suffering of unnecessary testing and experiments. I stand with them in the hope to make testing on all animals illegal.
I have supported AAVS for many years because of their tireless work to find alternatives to animal testing. There is no justification for this cruelty.
AAVS commitment to saving animals is outstanding! They speak up for the voiceless and apply practical solutions so that real change happens for innocent animals. Thank you for all you do!!!!!
AAVS is a top notch charity that has convinced me to become a monthly donor/supporter. They advocate regularly for animals abused in labs and encourage researchers to adopt cruelty-free, more effective alternatives to dissection and other animal testing. Their Leaping Bunny shopping app also allows people to pick/buy cruelty-free products.
With the rapid advance of our society's technology, there is no longer any need to abuse animals for research. AAVS has hastened the transition to these cruelty-free alternatives, and that's why I have chosen to support them with an electronic monthly donation.
I have been a life member of AAVS for more decades than I am able to remember. I can recall when Bernard Unti was president and he and I became friends, I was kept abreast, in a most personal way, of the projects and undertakings of the organization. At that time there were three major national antivivisection organizations on the scene; now there are only two, making AAVS's work even more important. From the days of Mr. Cave. the AAVS has been on the forefront of fighting the evil that is vivisection. Before the major animal rights organizations of today, AAVS was there leading the good battle. When the definitive history of the animal rights movement is written, AAVS will be listed as one of the pioneering organizations. AAVS has always funded and supported major efforts and campaigns to fight vivisection. Without the efforts of AAVS, we would still be advocating and funding the archaic, nonscientific and inhumane methods of Dr. Claude Bernard, the father of vivisection. AAVS deserves all of our enthusiastic support.

This is a fantastic organization that I have supported for over 10 years now. The fact that live animals are experimented on, including non anaesthetized surgery is utterly disgraceful and is an absolute shame. It is sad an organization needs to specialize in this, but because such an organization is needed, I am proud to continue supporting AAVS for the rest of my life, or until they are hopefully no longer needed.
As a society, a nation, a world... we have NO RIGHT to subjugate, torture, and abuse those so-called "lesser beings" that so graciously share their planet with us: AAVS leads the pack in educating, agitating, and advocating for the most 'humane' respect that "humanity"can extend to these creatures that we have been given the privilege of guardianship over...
AAVS is a fantastic organization doing wonderful work. They research alternative methods so that animals do not have to be used in research. They also support animal sanctuaries.
Can never express enough gratitude for AAVS and Sue Leary for suing the USDA to get basic protections for birds. You fought the battle for decades and won! And now you are fighting to make sure promises made are promises kept by the USDA and working to ensure that standards for birds are all that they should be. Thank you for taking on this critical issue ignored by the rest of the humane community.
I am always impressed by the work AAVS does on behalf of animals, especially through education of the public and by encouraging the development of alternatives to the use of animals in research. But I have been even more impressed during this pandemic by the organization’s dedication to continuing its work behind the scenes, despite the difficulties — helping science teachers to make use of alternatives to live dissection as they adapt to online teaching; helping sanctuaries that care for animals that have been freed from labs; and continuing to pressure government agencies to live up to their responsibilities on animal policies.
AAVS’s does amazing work for animas, which also benefits humans. This work includes Alternatives Research, Cruelty-Free Shopping, Humane Science Education, and/or Sanctuary Support. I use the crudely free shopping app all the time.
The American Anti-Vivsection Society is a wonderful, long standing organization that does amazing work for the welfare of all animals. They research alternative methods for testing in medical laboratories to show that animals do not have to be used and abused in tests. These alternative methods provide much better data regarding humans and saves the animals from cruelty and death. They support sanctuaries and promote cruelty-free shopping and just recently won a court case for the welfare and protection of birds. I believe in them so much that I named them my charity organization on Amazon Smile. Keep up your wonderful work, AAVS. The animals and the public need you.
All animals have feelings and should be saved. No animal should be caged and experimented on.
They have the right to live and be happy.
AAVS is an exceptional organization that works tirelessly to end the suffering of animals. Their education department, Animalearn, sponsors the Science Bank, which is a humane alternative to dissection and is available to students and educators alike. And their free Cruelty-free shopping app is my favorite phone app, as I can check for cruelty-free products as I shop! It's the best!
I support the AAVS because their work to improve the lives of all animals matters to me. They consistently fight to prevent animal cruelty and help educate the public about ways in which we can all pitch in to make a difference.
AAVS cannot be missed for the sake of the animals suffering in laboratories, an excellent organization!
AAVS believes in their cause and has an excellent team that works tirelessly at it. They are dedicated, honest, and trustworthy. They also are so helpful to members and people who may have questions. They are an organization that you can feel good about supporting.
I have been a supporter of AAVS ever since I first heard about them several years ago. They truly live out their mission statement. A reputable organization with integrity and a passion for what they do. You can feel confident when you donate to them that your money is going to actively reach the cause for animals.
This is one of my two favorite non-profits. I always loved how their in-depth articles provided lots of scientific information for addressing animal testing issues. Then, in the early nineties, I was president of the animal rights group at the college I was attending. I wanted to provide information to people to cause them to stand up for animals. Even though I contacted multiple organizations, most organizations did not provide a whole lot of help. But, AAVS provided buttons and an abundance of literature. They really care about helping animals, and they do it with science.
Then, years later, i took an additional college course in anatomy. AAVS helped me then too, to fight for an alternative to dissection labs. These are only two of the multiple times I reached out for help. They ALWAYS help. I can't say enough how wonderful I think this organization is.
I have followed and supported AAVS for years. Their mission is so important for the lives of millions of animals. I would suggest that anyone get to know them to understand the need to abolish cruel and ineffective vivisection.
I became familiar with AAVS years ago and have followed/donated ever since. I love how they fight to end animal testing and provide Humane Science Education and Alternatives Research.
I learned about the AAVS while researching ways to help animals used in labs. Their name came up everywhere. I subscribed to emails from them and visit their site frequently as well as looking into the things they do. All around, I’ve been extremely impressed. All the staff are passionate about what they do, and the emails help you make a difference for animals. The things they do are never to antagonize anyone, rather to persuade and encourage. I love helping animals, and so does the AAVS. Working with them was a great choice. Thanks so much, guys.
I am very grateful for the work of AAVS . They provide so much invaluable information to the public on the vivisection issue and ceaselessly advocate for the helpless and voiceless victims of this horrific business. I also deeply appreciate their campaigns and sanctuary work. I am always confident that my contributions will be well spent, as should other potential donors.
I Love this organization and its vital mission. It is so important that we show support for groups that have dedicated themselves to saving these animals from torture and lives of degradation and misery in the name of the False G-d of science.
AAVS is an organization that is true to its mission and never wavers in its dedication to end the use of innocent animals in laboratories. We have been supporters of AAVS for over thirty years and have named the organization as the beneficiary of our estate.
AAVS works tirelessly to end the horrors of vivisection. The organization has been a beacon of hope for all the millions of animals suffering in laboratories around the globe. I have been a supporter of AAVS for over thirty years and have named the organization as the sole beneficiary of my estate.
When I needed help with a large scale animal emergency, AAVS was one, of the only two, out of all of the animal welfare organizations I could contact, which responded with actual in person assistance! Also the AAVS Animal Learn program is unique and very important in educating the younger generations about how to be animal friendly in the future. I commend AAVS for their hard work and dedication to end animal experimentation and cruelty.
I've been an avid supporter of AAVS for about 40 years since i became active in Animal Welfare. We needed an organization to tackle, explain & debunk so many of the nonsense invasive experimentation being done on innocent animals. I was personally involved in engaging a member of Congress getting involved & having the GAO cut funding for an especially dubious research project being funded by our taxes.
One of the first Animal Welfare Advocacy Groups that inspired me to transform my anger into change and continues to be relavent in the present day.
AAVS brings the horrors and wasteful spending on useless experiments to the forefront.
This is an absolutely wonderful organization. They have done and continue to do so much to improve the lives of animals.
Wonderful caring people who are dedicated to making animals' lives better. I am proud to support this organization!
