About ARLO

The Animal Research Laboratory Overview (ARLO) is the animal protection movement's open-source research and transparency tool about the use of animals in experiments in US labs.

ARLO contains thousands of documents, as well as hundreds of pieces of information about each facility using animals. ARLO is free to use, and no registration is required. New records and features are added regularly.

Most of the documents in ARLO were obtained through thousands of open-records requests filed by Rise for Animals. A smaller number come from government databases and lab websites. All documents have been made fully text-searchable. You are free to download, share, repost, and use these records as you wish. We only ask that, if possible, you credit Rise for Animals and link to the Rise for Animals ARLO website at https://arlo.riseforanimals.org.

ARLO is a project of Rise for Animals, previously known as the New England Anti-Vivisection Society (NEAVS). Mike Ryan led the team that created ARLO: Amy Meyer, Casey Webster, Frances Chrzan, Miranda Eisen and Russ Kick.
