This Organization has the most impact in the fight against animal testing.
Review from Guidestar
SAEN is hands down the most effective organization working to expose the truth about animal experimentation. They are tireless, conscientious and relentless in their pursuit of the truth and bringing those who harm animals to justice. They have an extremely low overhead, one of the lowest of any non profit group working on any issue anywhere in the world so every dollar you donate will be going directly to help the animals. I highly recommend SAEN. They are only limited in the amount of animals they can save by the amount of resources they have. They have a proven model of advocacy that works. You can be confident your donation no matter the amount will save lives.
SAEN is hands down the most effective group working to expose the fraudulent animal experimentation industry and their countless abuses of animals. I have had the honor of knowing the founders and employees of SAEN for several years now. They are some of the hardest working, smartest, ethical and most dedicated people I have ever known. I highly recommend supporting SAEN in whatever way you can. SAEN gets more done with a dollar than most groups get done with 10. They are tireless in their pursuit of the truth.
SAEN is a phenomenal non profit. Their work directly impacts the lives of countless animals in laboratories. Their hands on approach brings results and countless animals are saved. As humble, dedicated, hard working individuals I have the utmost respect for them and their work. Their sole purpose is to save these animals and end animal testing. They have been a pleasure to work with and been very helpful and resourceful with giving of their time and energy to help others in the animal welfare movement. - Jessica Young inFURno! Founder
Excellent, hard working, passionate and honest organization that is exceedingly trustworthy and dedicated!
Stop Animal Exploitation Now is the best animal organization out there because they are a grassroot organization that has been there since the beginning of the animal movement, and unlike other organizations that are about press opts and fundraising, they continue to be direct action and making history with their exposes and ground breaking investigations exposing corruption and animal cruelty worldwide. I wish that everyone would support this animal org that is new hope for the animal movement. Michael Budkie always gives facts and statistics instead of emotional sales pitching, to help change horrific conditions. Thank you.

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.
I have been working as scientific advisor to SAEN (Stop Animal Exploitation Now) for almost 2 years. I find SAEN's work vital to the antivivisection effort. SAEN is one if the few groups ENTIRELY focused on fighting animal experimentation. Michael Budkie works tirelessly, reviewing reports obtained through The Freedom of Information Act, documenting inadequate, and sometimes horrendous animal care in laboratories. SAEN also holds national conferences, hitherto twice annual, and now annual, to teach people the flaws of vivisection, and how to oppose it. SAEN has been responsible for many laboratories being fined, and SAEN participated in the effort to get the Harvard Primate Center shut down, which will occur next year. SAEN also cooperates with other animal advocacy groups to improve the plight of animals in many other contexts. SAEN has devoted activists, like Karen Budkie and Julia Orr, working to limit and abolish animal abuse. I have been able to share what I have learned in my 30 year fight against vivisection with Michael, Karen, Julia, and Stacey, and together they make a formidable team.
In all my decades as a daily newspaper reporter and editor, I have yet to see a nonprofit organization like SAEN do the meticulous, but necessary, research to expose dangerous (to human and non-human animals) experiments funded by tax dollars. It's investigative work that deserves everybody's attention.
For at least the past fifteen years I have known and worked with SAEN and it's founder. I can safely say that they are a dedicated organization, relentless in exposing the vivisection industry and placing pressure wisely on universities, government agencies and other entities to end their outdated, wasteful, scientifically and medically inaccurate and cruel animal studies. Where many nonprofits are criticized for allowing significant portions of annual budgets to be allocated for operations and staffing expenses, SAEN is an extremely ethical organization that places its mission far above and beyond other budgetary items. I am pleased to know SAEN is in existence and look forward to the ongoing future success of the group.
The International Primate Protection League has worked with Stop Animal Exploitation now for many years and we admire their persistence and the fact that they do not wander into unrelated areas to get more funding. Their primary target every day is stopping abuse of animals in laboratories with an emphasis on nonhuman primates. Michael and Karen are always willing to share their knowledge and expertise with other organizations, including start-ups.
Animal experimentation is the most hidden of all atrocities committed against animals, but Michael and Karen Budkie of SAEN are changing that. SAEN is exposing the extreme cruelty, negligence, unreliability, huge tax dollar waste and misleading results of animal experimentation. There are a couple other non-profits that have been around for a century or so in the US that claim to be working to end vivisection, but SAEN (which formed less than 20 years ago) is the one that is making a difference for laboratory animals. I have learned a lot from SAEN and hope to learn much more to help in the fight against this unnecessary and deeply disturbing practice.
SAEN is the most amazing and dedicated organization when it comes to fighting for the voiceless and bringing awareness to the atrocities that occur on a daily basis to our fellow sentinent beings. SAEN lives and breathes equality, freedom and justice for all of the inprisoned, abused, neglected and tortured that cannot speak for themselves. I have the utmost respect for SAEN, a truly dedicated and amazing organization.
I have known and worked alongside the founders of Stop Animal Exploitation for over 10 years. They are experts in their field of fighting against the abuse and exploitation of animals in laboratories. Along with their deep knowledge base, their hard work and perseverance has led to numerous victories for laboratory animals. They do this with the highest level of honor and integrity.....something that you don't find very often. It is a pleasure to work with Stop Animal Exploitation Now.
SAEN! is an animal rights organization that focuses on revealing to the public the senseless cruelty to animals that researchers do in medical research labs across the country. By senseless I mean that SAEN! exposes 2 things: 1) why the research is not helpful to scientific progress and/or is very redundant, and 2) why the research is so horrifically cruel to the animals. SAEN! is not scared to expose the truth, which is carefully hidden by the NIH, scientists, universities, and medical research corporations. SAEN! is an extremely valuable resource to volunteers like me who want to work at the local level but do not have the scientific knowledge to understand the documents received in Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. SAEN! is a small yet extremely powerful organization and one that is very worth supporting if you care about the treatment of animals.
