The American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS), the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS) Foundation, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC), and FBR love animals and support animal research. So should you!


The lives of countless companion animals have been improved and saved by animal research. How?

Some notable examples include:

  • Vaccines to prevent distemper, rabies, infectious hepatitis, tetanus, infectious diarrhea (parvovirus) and feline leukemia
  • Technologies such as CAT scans, MRIs, and ultrasounds to help diagnose potentially deadly diseases
  • Life-saving emergency care for dogs and cats hit by cars
  • Advanced surgical procedures to treat joint and ligament distress in dogs and cats, plus organ transplants, and pacemaker implantations
  • Nutritional products to help puppies and kittens grow into healthy dogs and cats
