The National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) is dedicated to ending the exploitation of animals used in science. It promotes greater compassion, respect and justice for animals through educational and advocacy programs based on respected ethical, scientific, and legal theory.

 It also works to increase public awareness about animal experimentation, to promote positive solutions that advance humane science, to support the development of alternatives to the use of animals, and in cooperation with like-minded individuals and groups, to effect changes which help to end the unnecessary suffering of animals.

As an educational organization our primary mission is to educate people, confident that when they know the truth about vivisection, they will oppose it. NAVS is on the internet, in print, on the airwaves, and at conferences with the message that humane science is better science.

Interested parties can support the advocacy of the group through making general donations, giving ti the Sanctuary Fund, Monthly Giving, and Planned Giving.
