Today is Giving Tuesday. It wasn’t two weeks ago. It wasn’t last Tuesday. And it wasn’t yesterday. Despite emails you may have received in anticipation, today is Giving Tuesday. Founded in 2012 as a philanthropic response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday encourages charitable giving worldwide to benefit important causes. That’s great!

At AAVS, we are extremely grateful for your dedication to helping animals and your support of our mission through advocacy and donations. YOU make an incredible difference in the lives of
thousands of animals, including primates, horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, frogs—and mice, too.

YOU make all of our important work possible: promoting alternatives research, cruelty-free cosmetics, and humane science education. YOU support our outreach campaigns, legal advocacy, and grants to sanctuaries.

And while we value your generosity, don’t feel obligated to give today. Give when you can—on any Tuesday. Or even Wednesday.

But if you are inspired to make a gift on Giving Tuesday, we welcome and appreciate your support. Just like we do every day.

On Giving Tuesday, we give our thanks to YOU. You are the heart of AAVS.
