Kathryn V. Flood, an associate in the Government Contracts Practice Group of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney's Washington, D.C., office, was noted in a press release issued July 15, 2010, by In Defense of Animals (IDA). The release was picked up as well as was reported on by a number of media outlet, including the Warren Reporter, News Blaze and Topix.com. Flood was noted in each publication for her recent pro bono representation of IDA.

As reported in the press release, "In Defense of Animals (IDA), an international animal protection and rescue organization, along with several other groups has rescued 118 beagles and 55 long-tailed macaque monkeys from AniClin, an insolvent toxicology laboratory in Oxford, New Jersey. The beagles were transported from the lab to shelters two weeks ago. Today [July 15, 2010], IDA will take the monkeys to their new homes at four primate sanctuaries in Oklahoma and Texas. IDA assisted in facilitating the final agreements and coordinated their 1,700-mile journey, which will utilize a specialized animal transport service."

The release went on to note how AnaClin had been repeatedly cited by the USDA for Animal Welfare Act violations and had a license to sell animals. It also noted how the rescue came after "sometimes-tense negotiations with the company hired to liquidate the 'assets' of the lab, a proposal to release the animals was accepted, with the crucial assistance of IDA pro bono attorney Kathryn Flood of the law firm Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney."
