Thanks to so many caring and compassionate people, as of last week, 8 of the 10 VSTEP beagles were adopted and staff had six potential adopters for the remaining 2 beagles. The four cats used by VSTEP will undergo their anaesthesia this week, and after being recovered, all will go home to wonderful adoptive families.
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for making this possible for the animals.
As I've said before, additional dogs will be available soon, so if anyone is still interested in adopting a research animal, please give the University a call. The person to call at the University's Central Animal Facility is Annette Morrison, one of the animal care technicians. She is responsible for adoptions and can tell you about the other dogs they have.

As well, two of the three beagles in a shelter waiting to enter our Project Jessie programme have been adopted. Yay!
We really cannot thank you enough, on behalf of the animals.
