The mission of the American Fund for Alternatives to Animal Research (AFAAR) is to promote and assist research in and development of alternatives to animal use in science.
Since 1977, AFAAR has been providing funding to researchers and research companies to develop and validate such alternatives.
AFAAR's goal is to advance superior scientific methods and to end the cruelty of experiments and testing which cause suffering to animals in scientific, biomedical, industrial, military, agricultural, cosmetic, or any other research and in science education and training.
Our work is made possible through the generous support of the public, scientists, and funding institutions.
