Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter 1, Subchapter A
"APHIS/Animal Care, 4700 River Rd., Unit 85, Riverdale, MD 20737-1234.
The current version of the regulations developed by the U. S. Department of Agriculture that specify how to comply with the Animal Welfare Act and its amendments. The section is divided into 4 sections: Definitions, Regulations, Standards, and Rules of Practice Governing Proceedings Under the Animal Welfare Act. The Definitions section describes exactly what is meant by terms used in the legislation. "Animal", for example, specifically excludes rats of the genus Rattus and mice of the genus Mus as well as birds used in research. The Regulations section includes subparts for licensing, registration, research facilities, attending veterinarians and adequate veterinary care, stolen animals, records, compliance with standards and holding periods, and miscellaneous topics such as confiscation and destruction of animals and access and inspection of records and property. The bulk of the subchapter is the third section which provides standards for specific species or groups of species. Included are sections for cats and dogs, guinea pigs and hamsters, rabbits, nonhuman primates, marine mammals, and the general category of "other warm-blooded animals". Standards include those for facilities and operations, health and husbandry systems, and transportation. The final section sets forth the Rules of Practice applicable to adjudicating administrative proceedings under Section 19 of the Animal Welfare Act."
