Our Mission

To provide innovative rodent caging systems that save energy and protect animals, their caretakers and the environment.

Our Company

Established in 1997, Animal Care Systems is the first caging systems company in the industry founded by a veterinarian with experience in directing AAALAC-accredited animal care and use programs. Dr. Germain Rivard’s experience with animal facility planning, design and management produced the construction of the first Gene Transfer Technologies Training Center and Rodent Barrier Facility for genetically altered mouse colonies.

Animal Care Systems manufactures the original motor-free carousel design rodent caging system.
