Animal scientists, veterinarians, research administrators and leaders of the general public came together to form SCAW. They taught me how to meet my responsibilities in the midst of a fierce public debate.

For the past 33 years, SCAW has provided reliable information and sensible advice to vast numbers of
Americans who support both excellent science and humane treatment of animals. Congress, the USDA, and the NIH have all profited from SCAW’s generous and
competent assistance.
