Animals in education/research

The American Animal Hospital Association supports the responsible use of animals in education and scientific research only when the benefits are clear and only when it can be justified scientifically, ethically, and morally.

While we recognize that use of animals in research and education benefits both animals and humans, AAHA also supports the replacement of animals used in research/education, reduction of the numbers of animals used, and refinement of procedures and housing to minimize pain, distress, and discomfort.

Whenever appropriate, consideration should be given to finding homes for these animals.

Adopted by the American Animal Hospital Association Board of Directors, November 1994. Last revised October 2009.
