Regina Humane Society, Animal Research and Veterinary Education


The Regina Humane Society (RHS) provides a safe haven for stray and homeless companion animals and is committed to treating all animals in its care with respect and dignity. As such, the RHS does not sell or transfer companion animals in its care, whether dead or alive, for invasive research purposes or for harvesting organs, tissues or blood.  The RHS does support upper level disease surveillance of its animal population where the data collection method is minimally invasive. e.g. urine, fecal, hair or blood collection. Other medical procedures which would benefit the animal’s health and well-being are also supported.

The RHS supports the education of students of veterinary medicine through student rotations in Shelter Medicine, practicum or other supervised placements in the shelter and lectures, tours and other educational events.
