American Fund for Alternatives to Animal Research (AFAAR)

American Fund for Alternatives to Animal Research (AFAAR)

Since 1977, NEAVS’ sister organization AFAAR has provided funding in partnership with NEAVS to researchers worldwide to develop and validate alternatives to animal use in science. It was founded by Ethel Thurston, PhD. AFAAR's goal is to advance scientific methods that are more efficient, efficacious, and predictive of human responses than outdated and cruel animal experiments and testing.

Millions of animals suffer in scientific, biomedical, industrial, military, agricultural, cosmetic, and other areas of research. Advances in science and technology make this suffering not only unnecessary, but attest to how flawed, limited, and often dangerous the use of animals are for the purported benefit of human health.
