you work at a research facility and have animals you're ready to release...

We Can Help

Our hope is that at the end of study, whenever possible, the decision will be made to release animals to a trusted rescue.

We want to be that trusted resource for you.

We have years of personal experience and know that laboratory dogs and cats can adjust and adapt to life in a home environment and live happy and healthy lives.

We work with facilities, from private laboratories to major research universities, either directly with management or animal care representatives or intermediaries.

We will take in any cat or dog at any age, from pup to senior, and with any medical or behavioral special needs.

If you have other species you are ready to release, please contact us and we will help facilitate their release.
