The Home Office does not collect data regarding the number of animals, used in scientific procedures, which are subsequently re-homed. Establishments are required to keep information of the source, use and final disposal of protected animals, bred kept or used at the establishment for any regulated activities, which would include whether an animal used was re-homed.
