This credit was marked as Not Applicable for the following reason:

Feedback after AASHE review: "In order to count, there must be a written policy explicitly prohibiting laboratory animals in an institution's care from being subjected to severe and unrelieved pain and distress. Compliance with US federal standards is not sufficient. Based on the information provided, guidelines are in place to avoid or minimize discomfort, distress, and pain, but this is not prohibited." As such, I have dropped the credit. - KH
