About Us


The Israeli Society for the Abolition of Vivisection (ISAV) is Israel's most veteran animal rights organization, established in 1983 by Dr. Andre Menache and others. ISAV strives to bring a complete end to the exploitation of animals in the vivisection industries. ISAV challenges the outdated perception which sees animals as a tool for the use of mankind. ISAV acts establish the recognition that animals are sentient beings who have the right for dignity, compassion and autonomy over their body. The principal which guides ISAV is non compromising protection of the rights of animals to live a life free from suffering and enslavement, a principal which is supported by the existence of modern and efficient methods of research with a proven contribution to science.

ISAV is consisted of hundreds of members from various parts of society, including doctors academics of various fields and volunteers who care for animals and for humans.

ISAV focuses on educational and outreach work, which includes distribution of information, holding protests, taking legal measures, doing media work, conducting lectures, etc'.

ISAV's activity is based on donations by its members and the wide public.
