Re-homing and setting free

This advice note provides information on the legal requirements under the UK Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (ASPA) and gives guidance on current best practice in re-homing and setting free.

This advice note provides information on the legal requirements under the UK Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (ASPA) and gives guidance on current best practice in re-homing and setting free. The Home Office expects that every opportunity will be taken to re-home animals where it is appropriate to do so. This advice note explains the criteria required for the Secretary of State to consent for the re-homing or setting free at the end of procedures of relevant protected animals that have been bred, supplied, kept or used in regulated procedures.

Since the UK Act has been revised in order to transpose the EU Directive 2010/63, this document is of interest to other European countries also.
