Receiving Investigator Request Form
The information requested below is confidential and will be used to help ensure
that rats are shipped to and used by organizations that have appropriate staff and
housing to care for these animals.
Required information is marked with an asterisk (*).
Please use "n/a" as needed.
Due to the small size
of colonies maintained at the RRRC, we cannot typically accommodate requests for
specific ages or weights of rats. Animals shipped are normally from 3 weeks to 4
months of age. Please contact us for requests of 10 or more live animals.
