Report an Animal Use Concern

Anyone concerned with an animal’s welfare or is aware of non-compliance with policies, rules, regulations, and laws regarding animal care and use for research, teaching, or testing may contact a member of the Texas A&M Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, Attending Veterinarian, or IACUC administration. Complainants may remain anonymous. It is the goal of Texas A&M to ensure all animals are treated humanely and in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act

Each IACUC member, alternate, and staff member is responsible for referring any concerns received to the IACUC Chair. If the concern is made in writing or via email, it will be forwarded to the Chair with a note indicating the date and time of receipt of the concern. All allegations of animal mistreatment or non-compliance are taken seriously and investigated, even if the complainant chooses to remain anonymous.
