Then check out DCM’s Shared Rodent Service! This no-cost program is a fantastic way to share resources and help minimize the number of animals we use in research. The website features simple discussion boards where investigators can post on “Rodents Available” and “Rodents Wanted.” If you do get animals from another lab, don’t forget to submit an Animal Transfer Request!
Another great option to reduce the overall number of animals used in research is to donate them to the OAW’s Animal Use Training program (AUTS). Interested? Email the Animal Use Training Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
