Smarter science saves animals

Innovative research methods are helping develop personalized treatments for cancer. Advancements are being made in finding ways to prevent or cure illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s disease, that were once thought untreatable. New ways to study and prevent epidemics like the Zika virus are utilizing humane solutions to human health problems. And 21st-century technology is helping to bring an end to experiments on animals.

The science behind recent groundbreaking advancements like these will have a major impact on human lives, and will save the lives of countless animals, too.

This holiday season, you can help advance better, more human-relevant innovations that replace the cruel and flawed use of animals in research, testing and education.

Your generous support of NAVS has included helping early-career scientists as they pursue projects dedicated to developing alternatives to the use of animals in science—alternatives that may bring us closer to finding better treatments and cures for human health problems. Since 2001, generosity from NAVS supporters like you has helped provide over $1.7 million dollars in support of grants to these innovative scientists who are proving time and time again that humane science is better science.

You are helping to mount a revolution in the way science is conducted. And your investment is paying dividends, as these innovative methodologies gain acceptance by industries and regulatory agencies.

But there are more opportunities and gifted scientists in need of funding than our resources can support. Vested interests continue to resist change. You can help ensure that progress in the development and implementation of humane, innovative science continues and brings an end to archaic animal experimentation sooner.

With your gift today, you’ll be helping move forward science that can spare animals from needless suffering today, and that has the potential to save human and animal lives tomorrow. 

A future where innovation replaces exploitation is possible—but it takes all of us working together to create it.
