Rehoming horses used for plasma production

In line with our commitment to animal welfare and the responsible use of animals, Sanofi seeks to find rehoming opportunities for horses that have been used for plasma production. To conduct a feasibility study, Sanofi collaborated with GRAAL, an organization recognized for its work in the field of animal protection. GRAAL, which is dedicated to finding rehoming opportunities for animals used in biomedical research, now enjoys the support of the pharmaceutical industry. This program makes it possible for young and healthy horses that are accustomed to close contact with people to be adopted and used for recreational riding.

To date, host families have been found for more than 50 horses through this collaboration for which the feedback has been highly positive.
