HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT ART FOR ANIMALS 2019:
邮件中要包含Art for Animals 2019
n. The practice of cutting into or using invasive techniques on live animals. Derived from the Latin vivus, or alive, vivisection is commonly called animal experimentation, and includes the use of animals for research, testing and education.
Founded in 1929, the National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) has a proud history of animal advocacy aimed at ending the cruel and outdated practice of animal experimentation.
By promoting positive solutions that will replace cruel, costly and flawed animal experiments with modern, human-relevant innovative methods of research, safety testing and education, NAVS’ animal advocacy efforts will save not only animal lives, but human lives as well.
NAVS works with scientists from academia, government and industry to develop and implement smarter, research methods that replace the use of animals through funding of the International Foundation for Ethical Research (IFER) and other promising collaborations with the scientific community.
NAVS’ animal advocacy extends to the classroom, as well. By supporting the integration of today’s technology into science classrooms—including safer, cost-effective educational resources to replace animal dissection—NAVS aims to make the life sciences more exciting as well as more humane.. And by recognizing humane science achievements at international science fairs, NAVS is providing positive incentives for future generations of researchers to advance science without harming animals.
NAVS is also helping to support and advance state and federal legislation that would have a positive impact on animals. Through our online animal advocacy center, NAVS empowers individuals to make a positive difference by providing timely information on pending legislation and ways animals are used in science so they can easily take action, spread the word, and make informed, compassionate choices.
And NAVS’ animal advocacy efforts don’t end at the laboratory door. The NAVS Sanctuary Fund advances greater compassion for animals by providing emergency financial assistance to support animals retired from laboratories and those threatened by natural and man-made disasters.
More information on all of NAVS’ programs can be found by exploring this website and by downloading our publication, Advocating for Animals. Advancing Smarter Science.
The National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) is dedicated to ending the exploitation of animals used in science.
NAVS promotes greater compassion, respect and justice for animals through educational and advocacy programs based on respected ethical, scientific and legal theory. Supported by extensive documentation of the cruelty and waste of vivisection, NAVS 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.

Advocates, individuals who believe in the need for change in current practice and policy, want to make their voices heard. But in a society with so many issues and viewpoints, it is sometimes challenging to sort out those actions that can really make a difference. NAVS provides a platform for advocates to add their voices to many others in order to get the attention of legislators and other policymakers and promote our agenda for change. For NAVS, change means creating a more humane and just world for animals.
What-We-Do-Empower-AdvocatesNAVS provides tools and timely information on pending legislation and ways animals are used in science so that people can easily take effective action, spread the word and make informed, compassionate choices that can influence elected officials, policymakers, corporations and others to enact responsible animal-friendly changes.
Through the NAVS Advocacy Center, we provide an easy forum for action, where individuals can learn about specific bills and regulatory actions that affect animals, especially animals used for research, testing and education, and take action with a click of a computer key. The NAVS Advocacy Center offers information on federal and state legislation, as well as federal regulatory action and campaigns that concern corporate interests. Each advocacy item includes in-depth information about the issue and a pre-written letter in support of or in opposition to a pending action.
For advocates who wish to get information on important legislation and new legal trends, NAVS also provides a weekly e-newsletter, Take Action Thursday, with timely updates on legal issues and links to make taking action easy.
