Meet or adopt rats who were bred or used for science in NZ.

NZAVS has a special rat rehoming program with the University of Auckland.

This means that we can work to rehome rats who have been bred for science on an ongoing basis in Auckland!

If you live in Auckland and could give rats a loving, forever home, please apply today.

If you live in Wellington, you can apply to adopt rats who were bred for science via our friends at HUHA.

If you live somewhere else in NZ, you can add your name to our Nationwide Animal Adoption Waitlist and we can contact you if rats become available in your area.

We've already successfully rehomed hundreds of rats who were used or bred for science - you can meet some of these lucky animals below.

With your help we can end animal experimentation in Aotearoa.
