Founded in 1883, the American Anti-Vivisection Society (AAVS) was the first non-profit, animal advocacy and educational organization in the United States, and is dedicated to ending experimentation on animals in research, testing, and education.

A preliminary inventory of their records is available at the repository.

This collection contains preserved versions of the American Anti-Vivisection Society's website. To access these sites, see the Temple University Special Collections Urban Archives Archive-It web page: https://www.archive-it.org/collections/4487
