The University of Missouri has a robust adoption program for animals involved in research; since , dogs and cats have been adopted at Mizzou. Recently, the Office of Research announced that in an effort to expand its adoption program, it has partnered with Homes for Animal Heroes HAH , a national program dedicated to placing retired research animals in loving homes. These animals have helped researchers to discover key factors in a variety of human and companion animal conditions, including cancer, t and musculoskeletal disorders, heritable genetic disorders, neurodegenerative diseases and muscular degenerative conditions.
In many cases, dogs are the final step to testing lifesaving therapies and diagnostics needed for human clinical trials. Through the HAH project, several foster caregivers have been approved to prepare research animals for adoption. These foster families have an opportunity to raise and socialize their foster dogs while evaluating them for permanent placement with the families that are right for them. Once an animal has been placed in a foster home, adoption applications are evaluated by both the HAH regional coordinator and the foster caregiver to ensure potential adopters are a good fit for the animal.
