USDA-APHIS Stakeholder Announcement
Beginning 26 May 2009 10:35:17 -0400

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is pleased to announce that beginning May 26, 2009, all Animal Care inspection reports for Class A, B, and C licensees and Class E, H, and T registrants (animal breeders, dealers, exhibitors, and registered exhibitors, intermediate handles, and carriers respectively) will be available online at

You have received this announcement because of your recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for documents related to APHIS Animal Care’s licensing and inspection activities through the Animal Welfare Act. This transition will make these documents conveniently accessible to you, should you require further information in the future. Attached, you will find a copy of the stakeholder announcement from Dr. Charles Gipson, Deputy Administrator for Animal Care, APHIS.

This document can also be found on our Web site at: .

Please note that after May 26, 2009, you will no longer need to submit a FOIA request in order to access these inspection reports. In addition, the Web site will be updated monthly in order to ensure the most up-to-date information is available. We recognize your concerns related to our Agency’s enforcement of animal welfare standards, and welcome your continued feedback as we make a continued effort towards openness and transparency.
