ROUS Foundation for Capybara Veterinary Medicine
The ROUS Foundation provides funds for certain veterinary expenses associated with the care of captive capybaras through services provided by Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine.
The goal of the ROUS Foundation is to improve the quality and duration of life of captive capybaras including those kept as pets, in small zoos or in major zoological parks. A first objective of the Foundation is to learn the life expectancy of captive capybaras, why they die and what condition they are in at death in addition to the proximal cause of death. To this end, the Foundation supplies funds to cover the costs of capybara necropsies done at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine (TAMU), including the cost of shipping the deceased animal from within the United States and Canada.
Other procedures on capybaras may be covered on a case-by-case basis. Please see: http://gianthamster.com/2011/01/the-rous-foundation/ for more information
The ROUS Foundation was founded in loving memory of Caplin Rous, the World’s Most Famous Capybara.
