Approved Rodent Sources

Procurement of animals from off-campus sources for use in research and teaching protocols requires advance approval from the Division of Animal Resources (DAR). The investigator should review the policy on laboratory animal procurement and complete the Animal Request Form. While investigators may note their source preferences, DAR staff will place all orders with vendors for the requested animals based on the information provided on the Animal Request Form and will coordinate shipment and delivery.
