Stop Animal Exploitation Now! is one of the most admirable and straight forward groups to tackle the issues surrounding animal testing in recent years! SAEN has been a huge help in not only the projects that I've personally worked on, but also many other groups and individuals across North America. The work that SAEN does is invaluable in the fight against vivisection and animal exploitation, and they've been and continue to be a huge asset to the animal rights movement!!
