Visit from Leo!

Leo escapes from the lab
For most animals unfortunate enough to be designated as mere ‘tools for research’ their only escape from the laboratory is an injection of lethabarb. For one lucky cat however, a very different fate lay ahead… Leo is an ex-laboratory cat who has found a forever home. He has won the heart of many and serves as an ambassador for all those animals remaining in laboratories around Australia. Whilst around 6-7 million animals are used in Australia for research purposes every year, Leo provides a face to those statistics.
