Book Description:

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. For decades, the public has been concerned that lost or stolen dogs and cats could be used in research. The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is responsible for the licensing and oversight of dealers who provide animals for research. Random source Class B dealers -- who generally obtain dogs and cats for research from individuals, pounds, and other dealers -- have been the focus of this concern. This report determined: (1) the number of random source Class B dealers; (2) the extent to which APHIS conducts inspections of these dealers and verifies their records; and (3) the costs associated with APHIS's oversight of these dealers compared to other types of dealers.
