Wow, this is SAEN's 20th anniversary this year, and with each passing year we are continually evolving our approach in fighting the exploitation of animals imprisoned in labs. Our recent successes speak volumes for SAEN has forever closed seven labs/protocols in the last four years, initiated over four dozen labs being successfully prosecuted by the USDA in the last 2 1/2 years, and consistently garners over a hundred media stories annually exposing the negligence and ineptitude of these heinous facilities forever tarnishing their reputations in the eyes of the general public. Stay tuned for we have only just begun to fight!

SAEN is smokin' hot with SIX facilities/programs closed in FOUR years! The latest being University of Oklahoma's baboon research and breeding program scheduled to close in the coming months all due to SAEN's investigative prowess and media expertise! The other five animal testing programs closed due to SAEN are Harvard Med School's primate center, Cimcool, primate testing at both Wooster College and Penn State Med School, and another primate protocol, undisclosed due to confidentially in exchange for the primates to be retired to a sanctuary. I am very proud to be associated with this effective organization that runs on a small budget with a dedicated staff. Looking forward to many more successful years of effective campaigning to end animal experimentation NOW, not in 100 years!
