US - AWA - Animal Welfare Act Decisions

This document contains references to both court decisions and administrative proceedings under the Animal Welfare Act on a section by section basis.

US - AWA - Animal Welfare; Definition of Animal
The update to the Definition of Animal, in Section 1.1 of the Regulation, is simply made to make the definition of animal in the regulations more similar to that in the AWA.


The main change relates to mice, rats, and birds.


The definition in the Regulation has excluded mice and rats used for research, and all birds.


With this amendment, only birds that are bred or used for the purpose of research will be excluded.


US - AWA - Animal Welfare; Inspection, Licensing, and Procurement of Animals

Several changes and updates have been made to the licensing requirements, the procedures for licenses renewals, and restrictions upon acquisitions of dogs, cats, and other animals.


Although there have been several minor changes, with little affect to the regulation, there have been some more significant changes as well.


The new regulation seems to tighten restrictions, and provides specific guidelines for license applicants.


US - AWA - Animal Welfare; Transportation of Animals on Foreign Air Carriers

There has been a regulation update where a decision has been made to regulate the transportation of animals in commerce to all foreign air carriers, to or from any point within the United States.  If an animal is protected by the AWA, it will continue to be protected when being transported within or from the United States.  This update essentially increases the level of protection that animals protected under the AWA will receive.
