Animal Welfare Information Center
The Animal Welfare Information Center (AWIC) is mandated by the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) to provide information for improved animal care and use in research, testing, and teaching.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service today launched a new Web site dedicated to international pet travel and helping travelers and accredited veterinarians easily determine country-specific requirements. APHIS’s previous site was designed for accredited veterinarians and other animal health professionals who were familiar with interpreting technical regulatory language. Because of this, hundreds of callers a month called APHIS seeking info on pet travel. The new site is specifically designed to be easy for anyone to use.
