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.

In 1996, SAEN was founded on one principle and one principle only to EXPOSE and END animal experimentation. To this date, SAEN has upheld this goal with these accomplishments: unprecedented lab closures, record-setting USDA levied fines, multitudes of animals liberated from their prisons, AND the largest number of media stories exposing vivisection annually.

To this end, one concrete way to bring down an atrocity is to drag it out into the public eye. Each year SAEN continues to lead the pack in garnering media coverage on animal experiments exposing millions to witness this heinous, antiquated exploitation and call for its end. Recently, SAEN was recognized for being 50,000 to 140,000 times more effective at reaching the public than similar organizations. Basically, for every dollar donated to SAEN, it is spent more effectively to fulfill its mission. I invite you to be part of this change for animals desperately awaiting freedom by donating to SAEN today.

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!
