Participate with NAIA & Discover Animals

As NAIA celebrates its 25th year, we give thanks to the many wonderful people who’ve shared our mission and worked side by side with us every step of the way. What we have achieved is a testament to the collaboration and teamwork of those who love, live and work with animals. Your support proves that everything is possible when we all work together!

Help us continue this progress by sharing your knowledge on our PARTICIPATE! forum. Here you will find a platform to post and read articles, as well as engage in open discussions relating to all things animal. Voice your expertise, concerns, stories, successes, research findings and inside information to others in the animal community. We welcome and encourage experts of all backgrounds – trainers, veterinarians, breeders, animal scientists, wildlife conservationists, rescuers, pet owners and others – to share their knowledge and passion for animals. Our goal is to provide an informative and respectful environment for sharing, ultimately generating ideas that will promote a healthy future for animals and preserve the human-animal bond. Now all you have to do is PARTICIPATE.

Pass on the interesting things you discover here and invite your friends to join in the adventure.

If you have valuable knowledge about animals to share, please consider contributing an article to Discover Animals. Share your expertise.

If you appreciate Discover Animals, the NAIA Shelter Project and Homes for Animal Heroes, programs created by the National Animal Interest
Alliance (NAIA), please support our efforts and donate today.
