What happens with your research animals after your research is completed? Does your institution have a policy on adoption? We’ve updated FAQ F.11 and support institutions considering adoption where safe and appropriate. Visit the FAQ for all the details.
If your institution doesn’t currently have a policy, but you’re interested in exploring this option, watch our webinar, The 4th R: Rehoming, Retirement and Release. It provides information to assist you when exploring whether to implement a program, including considerations to include in study designs, how to identify criteria for suitable animals, and some challenges and lessons learned.
