The use of animals in research, teaching or testing is a privilege that is extended when a justifiable need is established. Animal Care and Veterinary Services manages animal facilities¬†for Carleton University’s research community, and serves as a component of the animal care and use program to ensure full compliance with the Canadian Council on Animal Care and Ontario Ministry of¬†Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.

Implementing and adhering to policies and guidelines on the proper care and use of animals in research, teaching or testing is a shared institutional responsibility shared by: the administration (including central, faculty and departmental); the University Veterinarian and Animal Care and Veterinary Services staff; faculty and students.
