This collection of articles reprinted from other National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) publications was compiled to educate the public on issues of importance to NAVS concerning companion animals. Topics covered include spaying and neutering, animal safety, pet theft, and the use of cats and dogs in research. The article on spaying and neutering presents some basic facts about population control in cats and dogs, benefits of surgically sterilizing pets, and early (prepubertal) sterilization. It states that in cats, population control should focus on cats four years of age and younger which produce 90% of kittens in human care while in dogs, euthanasia is not an issue of overpopulation but of aberrant caretaking which leads to euthanasia. The article on animal safety addresses confinement and identification systems to keep animals from getting lost. It contains warnings about leaving animals unsupervised to become targets for pet thieves. Two other articles devoted entirely to pet theft discuss the federal government's failure to enforce the Animal Welfare Act, particularly the recordkeeping requirements for animal brokers who obtain animals from random sources. Those articles addressing the use of cats and dogs for research purposes discuss the histories of the animals as well as scientific arguments against animal experimentation. (PVD)

This collection of pamphlets and articles reprinted from other National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) publications was compiled to address the issues of classroom laboratory dissection and the use of animals in science fair projects. Three of the pamphlets contained in this packet are student handbooks designed to help students of elementary, high school, and college age resist dissection in the classroom. Another pamphlet addressed to science teachers explains why many students today object to the practice of dissection. A science fair brochure explains science fair regulations, recent changes in rules to improve treatment of animals, and sample winning projects that caused pain to animals. The articles on dissection cover such topics as using frogs in dissection, why instructors adhere to dissection, dealing with ridicule, why dissection is a flawed tool in education, the connection between dissection and animal cruelty, and NAVS alternative models. Two science fair articles describe cruelty to animals in winning projects using live-animal experimentation at two recent international science fairs sponsored by high-tech corporations. (PVD)
