Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!

"Exposing the truth to wipe out animal experimentation"

SAEN is Growing - NOW Fighting for Freedom of Exotic Animals

SAEN is dedicated to the elimination of animal experimentation across the U.S. Our work in this area is often connected to other areas of animal abuse. One of the most closely related animal issues involves the exploitation of captive exotic animals. The same issues frequently face primates whether they are held captive in labs or for sale in the exotic animal trade. However, exotic animal issues also involve many other species, including everything from elephants to big cats.

One of SAENís closest allies in our work for animals has always been Don Elroy, an expert in dealing with exotic animal issues. Whether it has been providing information about animal dealers or helping with the filing of official complaints against laboratories (as well as the news conferences to announce the complaints), Don has always been an asset to SAEN. Many of our successes, including the recent revelations of abuse inside Charles River Labs, Bioreliance, and Tufts University were due to leads provided by Don.

We are happy to announce that Don Elroy has joined SAENís staff as an exotic animal specialist. His work will focus on many issues including elephants in captivity, the abuse of exotic animals by dealers, etc. We know that Donís expertise and dedication will continue to be an asset to SAEN and all of the animals.
