Random Source Dogs and Cats

AGENCY: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.
ACTION: Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY: We are correcting an error in a final rule that established regulations under the Animal Welfare Act (Act) regarding the housing and care of dogs and cats held by certain facilities that provide these animals to dealers, and that also added certification requirements regarding random source dogs and cats provided by dealers. The rule was promulgated under the Act to prevent the use of stolen pets in research and to provide owners the opportunity to locate their animals. The final rule was published in the Federal Register on July 22, 1993 (58 FR 39124-39130, Docket No. 91-035-3).

EFFECTIVE DATE: August 23, 1993.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. R. L. Crawford, Assistant Deputy Administrator, Animal Care, Regulatory Enforcement and Animal Care, APHIS, USDA, room 554, Federal Building, 6505 Belcrest Road, Hyattsville, MD 20782, (301) 436-4981.

2.75 [Corrected]

In FR Doc. 93-17439, pages 39124-39130, the following correction is made: On page 39129, third column, in 2.75, paragraph (a)(4), the words ``cat sold or otherwise disposed of by a dealer or exhibitor: Provided,'' are added immediately before the word ``however,''.

Done in Washington, DC, this 20th day of August 1993.
