The mission of the Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) Animal Care Program is to facilitate the use of animals in research, teaching and demonstration at Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and Rutgers NJAES Cooperative Extension while assuring compliance with applicable state and federal regulations. The NJAES Animal Care Program has been fully accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALACi) since 1993. AAALACi accreditation is widely accepted by the scientific community and connotes a high standard of excellence. The program cares for a wide variety of animals, including sheep, goats, pigs, cattle, horses, and occasionally chickens, lizards, and fish. The staff and facilities operate as a 'hybrid' of production farm, research facility and teaching operation.
