Lab Animals

Animals are used in science for many different purposes, and each research area raises specific animal welfare, ethical and scientific issues. The RSPCA's constructive and informed approach enables us to achieve positive outcomes for animals.

Our specialist staff in the RSPCA Animals in Science Department work in the UK and internationally. We promote effective ethical review of animal use and the fullest implementation of the 3Rs, with the primary aim of avoiding or replacing animals wherever possible, reducing animal numbers and suffering, and improving welfare, while animal use continues.

A major part of our work involves holding conferences, meetings and workshops, and producing reports and resources for those involved in the regulation, care and use of laboratory animals. If you have attended one of our events or have found our resources helpful, or if you would just like to support us, please consider making a donation which will help enable the RSPCA Animals in Science Department to continue this important work.

For more information about our work relating to the use of animals in science, see our website.
