AJs Angel Kennels - dog breeder - USDA Licences No. 41-A-0484

AJs Angel Kennels has a perfect record of over eight (8) years of excellent inspection reports.  AJs Angel Kennels has never had any direct violation sited in any of inspections of his state-of-the-art kennel.  

USDA APHID inspection requirements for professional dog breeders: 

For nearly 50 years, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has enforced the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) to protect certain animals from inhumane treatment and neglect.  Congress passed the AWA in 1966 and strengthened the law through amendments in 1970, 1976, 1985, 1990, 2002, 2007, and 2008.  The USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) administers the AWA, its standards, and its regulations. 

The AWA requires that basic standards of care and treatment be provided for certain animals bred and sold for use as pets, used in biomedical research, transported commercially, or exhibited to the public.  Individuals who operate facilities in these categories must provide their animals with adequate care and treatment in the areas of housing, handling, sanitation, nutrition, water, veterinary care, and protection from extreme weather and temperatures.  Although Federal requirements establish basic standards, regulated businesses are encouraged to exceed these standards. 

The AWA regulates the care and treatment of warmblooded animals, except those (such as farm animals) that are used for food, fiber, or other agricultural purposes.  Currently, coldblooded animals, such as snakes and alligators, are exempt from coverage under the Act.  Animal shelters and pounds are regulated if they sell dogs or cats to dealers or research facilities.  Pets owned by private citizens are not regulated. 

The AWA regulates the care and treatment of warmblooded animals, except those (such as farm animals) that are used for food, fiber, or other agricultural purposes.  Currently, coldblooded animals, such as snakes and alligators, are exempt from coverage under the Act.  Animal shelters and pounds are regulated if they sell dogs or cats to dealers or research facilities.  Pets owned by private citizens are not regulated.    

The AWA requires that all individuals or businesses dealing with animals covered under the law must be licensed or registered with APHIS 

Regulated research facilities include hospitals, colleges and universities, diagnostic laboratories, and many private firms in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.  In addition to providing basic standards of veterinary care and animal husbandry, regulated research facilities must provide dogs with the opportunity for exercise and promote  the psychological well-being of nonhuman primates used in laboratories.  Researchers must use methods to avoid or minimize discomfort, distress, and pain to the regulated animals unless withholding such methods is scientifically  justified.  The AWA also forbids the unnecessary duplication of previous experiments using regulated animals. 

Research facilities must establish an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee to oversee the use of animals in experiments.  This committee is responsible for ensuring that the facility remains in compliance with the AWA and for providing documentation of all areas of compliance to APHIS.  The committee must be composed of at least three members, including one veterinarian and one person who is not affiliated with the facility in any way  

Attending veterinarians play a crucial role in ensuring the humane treatment of animals under the Animal Welfare Act.  Dealers, exhibitors, and research facilities employ attending veterinarians to provide adequate veterinary care to their animals and to oversee other aspects of animal care and use.  In this role, veterinarians have the opportunity to expand their practice, provide veterinary care to a large number of diverse kinds of animals, and work alongside their clients and Animal Care to ensure the humane treatment of more than two million regulated animals.

The Animal Welfare Act (AWA) was passed to assure that humane care is provided to animals sold as pets or used in research, experimentation, or exhibition. As an attending veterinarian working with the licensee or registrant of a facility regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), you will play a crucial role in ensuring the provision of adequate veterinary care and overseeing the adequacy of other aspects of animal care and use.   

This module explains the role of the part-time attending veterinarian, their relationship with a USDA-regulated facility and USDA inspectors, and general knowledge of the Animal Welfare Act. Full-time attending veterinarians for USDA-regulated facilities will also find this presentation helpful.    

After completing this module, you will:

  • Know some of the benefits of becoming an attending veterinarian

  • Understand the Animal Welfare Act and Animal Welfare regulations for facilities with a part-time attending veterinarian

  • Be able to explain the regulatory requirements of licensees and registrants to provide veterinary care

  • Be able to explain the role of the part-time attending veterinarian

  • Be able to describe the elements of programs of adequate veterinary care

  • Understand why a USDA inspector may contact you to ask about veterinary care at a regulated facility for which you are serving as an attending veterinarian

Completion of this module is estimated to take 50 minutes, but will vary depending on your familiarity with the information presented. Links to documents and resources that explain in detail the role of the part-time attending veterinarian are provided throughout the module.

Dogs: A Startling New Understanding of Canine Origin, Behavior & Evolution

by Raymond Coppinger, Lorna Coppinger

Marking the first time that dogs have been explained in such detail by eminent researchers, "Dogs" is a work of wide appeal, as absorbing as it is enlightening. Drawing on insight gleaned from forty-five years of raising, training, and studying the behaviors of dogs worldwide, Lorna and Raymond Coppinger explore the fascinating processes by which dog breeds have evolved into their unique shapes and behaviors. Concentrating on five types of dogs -- modern household dogs, village dogs, livestock-guarding dogs, sled dogs, and herding dogs -- the Coppingers, internationally recognized canine ethologists and consummate dog lovers, examine our canine companions from a unique biological viewpoint. "Dogs" clearly points the way for dog lovers, dog therapists, veterinarians, and all others who deal with dogs to understand their animals from a fresh perspective.

How did the domestic dog become a distinct species from the wolf? Why do different breeds behave differently? Most important, how can we improve the relationship between humans and dogs?

The authors show how dogs' different abilities depend upon the confluence of their nature and nurture -
-
 that both genetics and the environment play equally key roles. They also reveal that many people inadvertently harm their canine companions because they fail to understand dogs' biological needs and dispositions.

"Dogs" is a highly readable biological approach by noted researchers that provides a wealth of new information about the interaction of nature and nurture, and demonstrates how unique dog behavior is in the animal world.
