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!

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.

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!

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.

The National Animal Interest Alliance (NAIA) is a very good organization. It brings together various groups who care about the actual welfare of animals, including pets, as well as the rights and responsibilities of human owners of animals. I attended the group's annual conference the last two years and i was very impressed with the assemblage of leaders and thinkers who focus on animal welfare and law. In 2015 the NAIA also funded a very important study of Animal Shelter data that showed that less than 10% of shelter dogs were marketed by shelters as purebred dogs.

NAIA is an organization that goes above and beyond the typical service of an animal welfare organization. NAIA works hard for the rights of animal owners all over the country. Such an amazing organization run by a wonderful group of people. The amount of education and support they provide is very much appreciated.

NAIA is the only group in the country working to preserve all of our relationships with animals. They are true animal welfarists and they treasure the human-animal bond. EVERYONE who loves animals should join NAIA now!

If you want accurate information about animal welfare issues, this is the place to go. If you want to help animals and strengthen the human-animal bond, this is the place to go. Lastly, if you think animal rights is the same as animal welfare you really need to go there to get educated.

NAIA is an excellent organization who's aim is to truly protect animals. They tell the truth, the whole truth. Truth's that other "humane" organizations would rather they not tell.

Quite simply, this group is far more concerned with protecting the rights of those who make money from animal suffering. Take a look at their positions on puppy mills, for example. They pretend to be about animal welfare to lure in unsuspecting animal lovers. It's disgusting.

NAIA speaks all the language of animal welfare and pretends to be an animal welfare organization, but its real purpose is to protect the rights of people to do anything they want to animals in their care.

NAIA actively lobbies against any sort of animal welfare legislation including laws against puppy mills. They have spoken out against animal shelters on numerous occasions, going so far as to accuse them of importing dogs from other countries in order to sell them for a profit. They pretend there is non such thing as pet overpopulation, and that there are plenty of homes for homeless pets, because they gives cover for the high-volume puppy mills that they serve to continue churning out puppies in horrible conditions to sell for vastly over-inflated prices over the internet and in pet stores.

The misinformation and outright lies coming from NAIA are a disgrace, and this organization does harm to every true animal welfare organization in America as well as the animals themselves.

The NAIA is a group of individuals dedicated to the preservation of the animal human bond. Members from all walks of life strive to support animal welfare and fight against the animal rights movement that seeks to remove animals from our homes. If you love your dog, thank a breeder. If you ate today, thank a farmer.
