Animal Research Committee


A committee has been formed to consider whether it is possible and/or advisable to develop a protocol for the potential involvement of shelter animals in research that benefits shelter animals generally, provided the research is not invasive in nature and does not call for their euthanasia. Presently, the committee is addressing concerns that have arisen in discussion of this difficult topic so that it can advise the Animal Services Advisory Board as a whole as to whether it should continue its consideration of developing a protocol for potential participation in such research.
