Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals

Mission: SAEN - Stop Animal Exploitation NOW's mission is to END animal experiments through cutting-edge investigations, hard-hitting media exposés, and public pressure.

Results: 1) SAEN CLOSES LABS DOWN! Included on SAEN’s trophy wall: Santa Cruz Biotech, Harvard’s Primate Research Center, U of Oklahoma’s baboon program, Cimcool’s animal lab, and primate experimentation at Penn State Med School, Wooster College, and several undisclosed labs. 2) SAEN PROSECUTES LABS! Over 1100 labs are registered in the US - we investigate EVERY SINGLE ONE. If they BREAK laws, SAEN acts! In last 5 years, SAEN secured prosecution of OVER 55 labs. 3) SAEN LEADS IN MAJOR MEDIA COVERAGE! We routinely garner OVER 100 articles in major publications, educating millions and exposing criminal labs along with connecting SAEN with whistleblowers. SAEN has been proved to be “50K times MORE Effective than other groups” in garnering coverage, and thus, instrumental in changing public opinion. 4) SAEN FREES ANIMALS FROM LABS! Today, dozens of animals live in sanctuaries directly due to SAEN’s Sanctuary Fund grants and SAEN’s campaigns effectively targeting labs!

Target demographics: end abusive animal experimentation in labs.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We monitor USDA and NIH databases to ensure that federal laws are enforced and labs are cited/fined; ensure sanctuaries are funded so animals can be retired from labs; attend conferences, hold news briefings, and participate in broadcast interviews to educate the public and media about the antiquated atrocities of animal experimentation and waste of tax money; considered leading expert on animal experimentation issue in the U.S.

Geographic areas served: the United States

Programs: Investigation of abusive practices within research facilities and exposing these abuses through coordinated media events.

Positive results for the animals they represent is what this organization brings. Tireless efforts on behalf of all animals in labs and research. One of only a handful of organizations that speaks up for these often time forgotten beings. I serve as an advisor to this organization on primate issues and support their efforts whenever I can.

SAEN, does more for less than any organization that advocates for the ending of Animal Experimentation than any group I know of. They also provide assistance to many groups that otherwise would not be able to do the work they do without the valuable guidance and assistance of SAEN. SAEN provides valuable information and facts about what is really going on behind the closed doors of many laboratories. They uncover and shine the light on the inside of the labs and that benefits the animals caught up in animal experimentation that do not have a voice otherwise. It's easy to recommend SAEN their work speaks for itself.

This organization not only does all of the work they say they do, they do all the follow-up work to make sure that the campaigns they work on will have success from start to finish. Every penny they raise will be used to create awareness and results. I am happy I learned about their work and hope they continue to grow. I strongly encourage everyone to support SAEN.
