what people say

“This is the non profit that started me on my animal rights journey. I became vegetarian because of this group, started paying attention to animal testing and refuting peoples assumptions. Been a wonderful resource as well.”

“They do a lot of great work. I have signed petitions for them. They educate people on the horrific things done to sensitive, feeling beings in the name of ‘science”, that really yields no results. They are awesome for stepping up to make change and get rid of archaic, barbaric practices that torture innocent beings and waste taxpayer dollars.”

“AAVS funds alternatives to animals in research, provides students with alternatives to dissection in school, guides consumers toward humane companies and products, and gives sanctuary to animals in need. What better non-profit to support than this? AAVS is my choice of charities on smile.Amazon.”
