Report a Concern

Tens of millions of animals are used annually for research, testing and education throughout the United States. While some facilities comply with the law and provide good care for their animals, this is not true of all. There are circumstances where animals in the laboratory are being denied the care and/or treatment they need to ensure their well-being, and animals may be suffering unnecessarily. Such situations may or may not involve a violation of laws or guidelines. We want to help you correct such situations for the benefit of the animals.

Please use this form to submit any issue of concern regarding the welfare of animals used for research, testing or teaching. We will take action to resolve the situation in the best interest of the animals while maintaining your privacy and security.

Submit with confidence. You are on a secure server.


*No personal information is required in order to report a concern, however, the more detail that is provided the better we will be able to address the situation.
