Did you know…
- Over 90% of animals in laboratories are excluded from even the minimal protections offered by the Animal Welfare Act.
- Animal researchers can withhold painkillers and anesthesia from animals if deemed “scientifically necessary” for the experiment.
- Millions of animals still suffer and die each year in testing for products like makeup, toothpaste, shaving cream, oven cleaner, and laundry detergent – despite the fact that the law does not require any of these tests.
Fortunately, with your help, every day NEAVS is fighting to end the use of animals in research, testing, and science education nation and worldwide through education, public outreach, legislation, policy change, and legal action. Your active membership makes you a part of one of the most effective national organizations in the U.S. working exclusively to replace outdated, inhumane animal methods with scientifically superior and humane alternatives.
The American public accepts the use of animals in research only when they are made to believe it is necessary and that the animals do not suffer. NEAVS shows that it is not necessary, and that they do suffer. Through our strategic and effective campaigns, we are winning the hearts and minds of not just people like you and the general public, but of scientists themselves and influential policy and law-makers.
