Alternatives Loan Program

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) operates a loan program to provide students and educators with up-to-date alternatives to classroom animal dissection and live animal experimentation as a way to help those who object to dissection and to encourage the adoption of humane alternatives in the classroom.

All of the materials listed below are available for loan. The only cost to borrowers is return postage. To release materials, The HSUS requires valid credit card information and an approximate date when materials will be returned. No charges will be incurred on the credit card unless materials are returned damaged or not returned at all. Some items are limited. Please contact us at least 2 weeks prior to needing the materials to check availability and allow for shipping time.

All computer based materials are for Macintosh and Windows unless otherwise indicated. Please contact us for information on the companies that produce these materials.
