Statement of support for the safe and humane transport of laboratory animals:

Laboratory animals have played a vital role in many of the most significant advances in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, and continue to be a critical resource.  Transporting animals between specialized breeders and institutions is important to continue new discoveries and foster collaborations.  Airlines and other transportation services are critical for this work, and LAR supports the continued safe, humane, and rapid transport of laboratory animals to improve the lives of both humans and animals.
